A few weeks ago, our great friends at That Hashtag Show revealed that The Flash was casting the DC Comics character Brainstorm for multiple episodes. Today we finally know who is going to bring him to life as Deadline revealed that Kendrick Sampson (White Famous, How to Get Away With Murder) has been tapped for the role.
Sampson will make his debut in the midseason finale that airs next week, which you can see photos and the trailer for here. Warner Bros. TV describes the role as follows:
“Dominic Lanse aka Brainstorm. Dominic is an affable TSA Agent who becomes the unwitting recipient of meta-human powers. Now Dominic bears the gift and curse of reading people’s thoughts, whether he wants to or not.”
Brainstorm will be the next bus-meta that the team will have to deal with when he shows up next week. Let us know in the comments below what you think about the casting!
“Don’t Run” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)
KATEE SACKHOFF RETURNS AS AMUNET — Amunet (guest star Katie Sackhoff) kidnaps Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and puts meta-dampener handcuffs on her to keep her from turning into Killer Frost. Amunet tells Caitlin she needs her to perform a tricky medical task and if Caitlin fails, Amunet will kill her. Meanwhile, The Thinker (guest star Neil Sandilands) traps The Flash (Grant Gustin) in a speedster-proof prison. With the clock ticking, The Team doesn’t have the time or resources to track both Caitlin and Barry so Iris (Candice Patton) is forced to choose who to save. Stefan Pleszczynski directed the episode written by Sam Chalsen & Judalina Neira (#409). Original airdate 12/5/2017.”
