With TV season edging closer, the amount of exciting casting announcements is gradually exciting. The latest piece of news is that Michael Ironside, most famous for dying in films like Total Recall and Starship Troopers and having his arm chopped off in The Machinist, will join the cast of The Flash Season 2 as Lewis Snart.
Fans will recognise him as the father of Flash rogue Captain Cold, aka Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) and his sister Lisa (Peyton List), indicating that the show will expand on both their stories in the season ahead. Judging by what runs in the family, we can’t imagine him being the nicest of people.
The official description of Snart, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter, describes him as a: “cold-blooded, ruthless career criminal. Recently released from prison, he returns to Central City with a plan that will endanger both of his children.”
Ironside will show up in the third episode, ‘Family Of Rogues’. Hopefully he’ll survive the episode.
The Flash Season 2 will air on Sky1 later on in the year. For more on the comics that inspired the show, pick up the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics: Revised Edition bookazine now.
