Flash Looks To Law & Order For Iris West’s Dad

jesse-l-martin_lThe role of Detective West, the father of Iris who also raised Barry Allen after what happened with his parents, has been cast.

THR has revealed that Jesse L. Martin of Law & Order fame has landed the role.

Detective West is described as “an honest, blue-collar cop who is a surrogate father to Barry. A soulful, funny and caring father to Iris — Barry’s potential love interest — West came up through the foster care system and took Barry in after his mother’s slaying and father’s imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports his efforts to prove his father’s innocence.”

Hopefully some Iris news is coming next, right?

  1. If they are filming soon, Iris should be cast. Plus, I wanna see the Flash suit.

  2. I never watched law and order. But he seems to be a solid pick for mr. West. Still don’t know how I ffeel on race changing the west family. More so in case of wally, or if we ever got to see barry/iris future kids. But I wait to judge better once we got footage/episodes to see.

  3. This is awesome news. With Jesse L Martin on board, I think the perfect Iris West would be Gina Jones. She is an up and coming actress/model from London in the UK.
