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.

John Wesley Shipp Returns As Earth-2 Flash on Stargirl

John Wesley Shipp will be playing The Earth-2 Flash in Stargirl Season 2.




While his Flash of Earth-90 has sped off into the afterlife, John Wesley Shipp still has another old role to return to… with a more familiar background!

Jay Garrick will be firmly established as the Flash of Earth-2 – just like the classic comics – and John Wesley Shipp himself will be playing the role in the ninth episode of Season 2 of DC’s Stargirl. Shipp – who starred in the 1990 Flash TV series and later played Henry Allen and Jay Garrick (living on Earth-3) on The Flash – will be reprising his role. EW broke the news today.

This casting, of course, reinforces Stargirl’s role in the Arrowverse — yes, we are still calling it that, no matter what The CW wants us to say. The members of Stargirl’s new generation of the Justice Society was, of course, seen at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths as being the heroes of the new Earth-2.

No premiere date for Stargirl Season 2 has been announced yet, so it may be some time before Jay Garrick speeds in.
