Mark Hamill, who played James Jesse aka The Trickster on the most memorable episodes of the 1990 Flash television series, will be reprising the role.

Alan Sepinwall at HitFix broke the news, which pointed out that Hamill will be in the show’s 17th episode. Hamill’s casting announcement comes only one day before we see Amanda Pays reprising her original Flash series role as Dr. Tina McGee.

Here’s the character description that HitFix posted:

Mark Hamill returns in a brand new interpretation of James Jesse (aka The Trickster), a role he originated on the 90’s ‘Flash’ series.  In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights who helps Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil the city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original’s deadly footsteps.   The episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp who went up against him as the original ‘Flash’ on the CBS version.

Hamill’s Trickster surely inspired his later long-running performance as The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. One episode featured the Trickster and a sidekick called “Prank” who was very Harley Quinn-like.

The trailer for Mark Hamill’s most recent big venture, a little something called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, hits theaters in December 2015.

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.
