23-year-old Insurgent star Keiynan Lonsdale has been cast in the coveted role of Wally West on The Flash — and he’ll be a SERIES REGULAR!
We first saw this news on The Hollywood Reporter.
“Just like when we met Grant [Gustin] for the first time, we instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. “We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show.”
In the comics, Wally West would eventually become Kid Flash and later, The Flash. How will he fit in to The Flash? We’ll have to watch Season 2 – starting October 6 – to find out!
