Tony Todd won’t be the only Candyman actor to make their way to The Flash Season 2 as Variety announced tonight that Vanessa Williams (not to be mixed up with Vanessa Williams of Ugly Betty) has joined the show. Williams will play the mother of Iris West (Candice Patton) and other than the casting, there were no details on when she will appear and what her arc will have in store.

The Flash begins its second season on Tuesday October 6, 8/7c on The CW.
