You thought we were done with new series regular announcements? Nope!
Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll) has been cast as the Flashpoint-born son of John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson). The news was announced today during the Arrow panel at Comic-Con. We will meet J.J. in the future as the leader of the Deathstroke Gang, where he faces off against Mia and his adopted brother, Connor.
Barnett joins previously announced new series regulars Katherine McNamara, Joseph David-Jones and Ben Lewis as Mia Smoak, Connor Hawke and Oliver Queen’s adopted son, William Clayton, respectively. Barnett most recently starred alongside Natasha Lyonne in the Netflix series Russian Doll, as well as Tales of the City, the return of the seminal book and television series from Armistead Maupin. Also known for his roles on Chicago Fire, Secrets and Lies and Valor, the Juilliard graduate hails from Florida.
