Harry Potter’s Tom Felton Joins The Flash

Things are getting magical in the third season of The Flash as a big piece of casting just came out. TV Line revealed that Tom Felton, best known for his role as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, will be joining Season 3 of CW’s The Flash. Here is how Warner Bros. TV and The CW describes Felton’s character.

“Felton will play Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation.”

This is most likely the character that TV Line was teasing at a few weeks ago during their “Ask Ausiello” session:

Question: Any hints on The Flash‘s Season 3 Big Bad? I’m hoping Mirror Master is introduced! —Mike
Ausiello: I’m seeing nothing firm (yet) on Mirror Master being introduced, but here’s a curious new breakdown to wrap your noodle around: For Season 3, the CW hit is casting the major recurring character of Barry’s slightly older, slightly geekier contemporary, a guy who is as smart as he is intuitive. As such, this newcomer doesn’t buy Barry’s nice guy routine and sets out to learn what he’s hiding — all while concealing some secrets of his own….”

Could “Julian Dorn” perhaps be a cover name? Anything is possible with these DC shows and we have seen certain characters actually being someone else, like with Harrison Wells.

The Flash will premiere its 3rd season on Tuesday, October 4th at 8/7c on The CW with the season premiere titled “Flashpoint”. Are you excited for Tom Felton joining The Flash as a series regular? Got any theories on Julian Dorn and his suspicions with Barry? Let us know in the comments below!
