The Flash adds another name to their impressive cast list as Demore Barnes (12 Monkeys, Supernatural, Hannibal) joins the cast of the hit CW TV series. He will be playing the role of Henry Hewitt, who is also known as the Firestorm villain Tokamak.
Hewitt, in the comics, was a mad scientist who attempted to blackmail the US government while kidnapping a senator’s daughter and turning her into the heroine Firebird. As of yet, DC Comics and the CW have yet to reveal whether the Flash version of Hewitt will go up against Firestorm (Robbie Amell) or be a friend to the STAR Labs team. He is described by the Flash press release as “a charming, but cocky scientist who was affected by the same Particle Accelerator explosion that created the Flash. When Caitlin Snow recruits him to join the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, Hewitt jumps at the opportunity to fulfill his destiny as a powerful meta-human.”
The Flash returns to the CW on October 6th at 8PM.
