Is The Flash Casting Jay Garrick For Season 2?

The Flash is casting an older hero for Season 2.

More Flash Season 2 casting scoop from TV Line today:

The site’s Matt Mitovich reports that the show is casting “the season-long role of a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man with an edge.”

Perhaps, this guy?

(For the uninitiated, that’s Jay Garrick, the original Flash from the comics. His helmet was seen briefly in the season finale.)

Since John Wesley Shipp is already playing a role on the new show, any casting suggestions? Leave ’em in the comments. (This actually is a role I could see Tom Welling in, but he seems reluctant to re-enter the superhero world.)

Thanks to Andy for the tip. We will point out that there have been hints this character might instead be Carter Hall, Hawkman… maybe setting up/tying into the appearances on Ciara Renee on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow? After all, Mitovich did say on Twitter “Think Harrison Ford,” and Indiana Jones was an archaeologist…

But our money’s still on Garrick. Or, at least, we’re hoping it is him.

    This show needs a dosis of Blue & Gold! perhaps they are casting for Ted Kord and/ or Michael Jon Carter?

    Come on! you already have Rip Hunter (although a british one…)

    I’m from Argentina, sorry for my spelling!

    John Wesley Shipp could, and should have the role. This Flash will be from an alternate time line/universe. Imagine the melodrama that will ensue as Berry gets mentorship from a version of his father that is also a speedster. Think of how that will catapolt his abilities as well as create personal conflict as he attempts to balance the time spent learning new abilities from a version of his father with his continued goal of freeing his father in Iron Heights. Even more explosive would be if Berry’s father dies in Iron Heights right before Jay is revealed as another version of Berry’s father, played by the same actor, who fills the void and helps him become a better Flash. But, I diegress, John Wesley Shipp for Jay Garrick!

    Mark Valley would be good.

    Justin Hartley would be amusing as either Carter Hall or Jay Garrick.

John Wesley Shipp Returns As Earth-2 Flash on Stargirl

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

Published

Flashes

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.
