Dominic Purcell will join his “Prison Break” co-star Wentworth Miller on The CW’s upcoming series THE FLASH. Based on the comic book, the series centers on Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, an assistant police forensic investigator who suffers a freak accident who turns him into a superhero with the power of incredible speed. Purcell has been cast as Mick Rory, a pyromaniac who teams up with Miller’s Leonard Snart/Captain Cold to become the villain known as Heatwave.
This role marks Purcell’s first real return to television after playing Lincoln Burrows on Fox’s “Prison Break,” but he’s been keeping busy starring in films like Damian Lee’s “Breakout” and “A Fighting Man,” as well as action projects like “Vikingdom” and “Ice Soldiers.” Next up, Purcell is set to star in “Gridlocked” alongside Stephen Lang and Danny Glover.
