Exclusive: Glee’s Max Adler To Set The Flash On Fire

Max Adler of Glee fame will be appearing as Jaco Birch on The Flash.



Following in the footsteps of Grant Gustin, Melissa Benoist, Blake Jenner, and Darren Criss, another veteran from Glee is headed to the Arrowverse. And this time… it’s Karofsky, or more properly, it’s Max Adler who played David Karofsky on the FOX musical series.

FlashTVNews has confirmed that Adler, whose other credits include Switched at Birth and a recent episode of Criminal Minds, will be playing a character named Jaco Birch who is described as “an obsessive music fanatic who worships at the altar of classic heavy metal.” Birch is a roadie for all the contemporary metal bands you’ve never heard of… and there’s one other thing: he loves to set things on fire.

We’re not sure if there’s a comic book equivalent of Jaco Birch; obviously, the rogues’ gallery’s biggest fire bug, Mick Rory a.k.a. Heat Wave, is busy over on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Look for Adler’s episode of The Flash in March. Eagle-eyed visitors to Adler’s Twitter account will notice that he has recently been in Vancouver and has participated in an escape room and other games with cast members from the show.

Back in 2012, Adler presented at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards alongside Grant Gustin; we’re assuming their Flash characters won’t be so cordial!

(Also, we hope “Max Adler to set The Flash on fire” isn’t something he will actually be doing, and is instead just a play on words for our headline. So, worry not!)

The Flash has a new episode airing this Tuesday called “Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash” — official photos from the episode can be found here. The series airs Tuesdays at 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Flash Season 7 Premiere Delayed To March 2

The Flash Season 7 premiere will now air on March 2.



Fans of The Flash might need a time machine, because The CW has pushed the Flash Season 7 premiere to March 2. Originally, the premiere had been set for February 23.

Why the delay?

It appears that the Superman & Lois pilot was running a bit long, so it’s in a 90 minute time slot, where it will pair with a special titled “Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope.” As such, they needed the two hours of programming, and that put Flash further down in the schedule. On the bright side, this means that once episodes start going, there’s less of a chance for pre-emptions and repeats.

Hopefully we’ll still have Flash content, including clips and preview images, in the meantime, so follow @FlashTVNews on Twitter and we’ll keep you updated!

Details about the Flash delay and the Superman & Lois special can be found here.

Jon Cor Is Chillblaine In The Flash Season 7

Jon Cor has landed the role of the villain Chillblaine in The Flash Season 7.



Today brings news from TV Line that Jon Cor (Shadowhunters) has been cast in the recurring role of Chillblaine in The Flash Season 7. A character who first appeared in Flash Annual #5 way back in 1992, Chillblaine at one point had possession of Captain Cold’s chill gun as given to him by the Golden Glider. Here’s how the TV show take on the character will play out, with a description also from TV Line:

Scientist Mark Stevens is a charismatic bad boy obsessed with cryogenic technology. But when he’s not breaking into corporate safes, he’s busy breaking hearts with his irresistible charm and roguish style. Armed with his own cold weapons, he’ll become a new thorn in the side of Team Flash as the DC Comics villain Chillblaine.

TV Line notes that there is currently no word of Peyton List reprising her role as Golden Glider. (Maybe Crisis on Infinite Earths can cause a recast to the other Peyton List? We’re kidding.)

The Flash Season 7 is currently scheduled to premiere February 23 on The CW.
