Professor Zoom and Killer Frost Race to The CW’s The Flash


Two more have joined the cast of The CW’s proposed “Arrow” spinoff, “The Flash.” Deadline reports that Rick Gosnett (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) are set to star as Central City Police Detective Eddie Thawne and S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow, respectively.

The Thawne character is set to be a slightly renamed take on DC Comics’ Eobard Thawne, the man who later becomes Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash. Snow, meanwhile, is better known in the current continuity as the alternate identity of the ice-powered villainess Killer Frost.

Already set to star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, “The Flash” arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg who, along with Geoff Johns, will write the pilot episode with “Arrow” pilot director David Nutter at the helm.
