Arrow’s casting folks sure love their Spartacus.
Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson), Katrina Law (Nyssa), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Amanda Waller) all came from that show, and today, EW has revealed that a veteran from Spartacus will be playing DC Comics villain Digger (no relation to Captain Jack) Harkness, better known as Captain Boomerang.
Which Spartacus veteran?
That will be Nick Tarabay. In the Arrow universe, Captain Boomerang will be a former A.R.G.U.S. operative, highly skilled in martial arts and espionage, with a deadly thirst for vengeance against his former employers.Look for him first in the seventh episode of Arrow Season 3, and again in episode #3.8 – an episode that will also feature The Flash.
