Farscape and Stargate star Ben Browder is the latest big name from the sci-fi/genre world to appear on Arrow — news that has been revealed by IGN today. He’ll be playing a character named Ted Gaynor who first appeared in Blackhawk comics from DC in the 1980’s.
Here’s how IGN describes the character:
Gaynor is Diggle’s commanding officer from his first tour in Afghanistan, who now works as a bodyguard for Blackhawk Squad Protection Group in Starling City. As a series of armored truck robberies strike the city, Gaynor proves to be a polarizing figure between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey).
Look for him in Arrow Episode 11, “Trust But Verify.”
(And now, how about another Ted from the DC Universe? It might break ratings re-Kords…)
