Probably because they're confident that The Flash will perform strongly enough that it doesn't need a lead-in and can be a self-starter at 8pm, leaving the post-Arrow timeslot to shows that do need a strong lead-in (The 100 in the fall and whatever airs there, maybe iZombie, in mid-season).

Didn't the blind guy from Becker work there too? Or was he a cop?

Alex Désert's character, Julio, was Barry's partner in the police crime lab, not STAR. (By the way, Désert also voiced Nick Fury in Wolverine and the X-Men and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.)

Ah, thanks guys. It must have been the "science-y" bit of his job that tricked my memory of him.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

And I'll take the fact that Christopher hasn't provided a list as confirmation that we rarely if ever saw anyone else working at STAR Labs....

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

^I have the impression we occasionally saw colleagues of Tina's as guest stars, but I haven't rewatched my DVDs in a few years. I think there was something about her late husband being a fellow STAR researcher who was killed in an experiment. And I think we saw the lab's security personnel once or twice. In any case, though, Tina had her own private lab that she operated alone, as unlikely as that is.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

It's too bad the original Flash series got cancelled because they pulled Tina's husband's death straight from the Wally West Flash comic book which was out at the time. I believe it had something to do with super speed as well. I'm sure a second season would have seen Tina's husband turn up.

I also think she had a colleague who turned into some kind of werewolf, but I'm a little hazy on the details.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

John Wesley Shipp, who was cast in a mystery role in the CW pilot in February, will play Barry Allen’s dad, Henry, on the upcoming series, TVLine has learned.


Given his history with The Flash, [executive producers] Andrew [Kreisberg], Geoff [Johns] and I could only think of one person we wanted to play Barry’s father and that was John Wesley Shipp,” said EP Greg Berlanti in a statement. “He gives a fantastic and emotional performance in the pilot and we are looking forward to his presence in many more episodes. Also, personally, it was just wonderful to work with him again since my days at Dawson’s Creek. He’s a great actor and a great guy.”

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

It'd be kinda cool if they could find a way to bring Amanda Pays into the show as well.

And Alex Désert, and Joyce Hyser, and Mike Genovese, and Biff Manard and Vito D'Ambrosio. Even Richard Belzer and Dick Miller, if they're still active.

Unfortunately I think Mark Hamill is going to be a little busy for the next couple of years...

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Mark is committed to the character, or someone is manipulating him well, otherwise he wouldn't have reprised the role for JLA Animated... If they ask him, he will come.

In the Jay and Silent Bob Animated movie that came out a couple weeks ago, Kevin Smith stopped the movie to personally and empatically apologise to the audience that they had ran out of money and couldn't afford Mark Hamill to reprise the roll of Cockknocker, so they got some My Little Pony celebrity voice actor to do it instead.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

A pre-air rip is making the rounds if you know where to look.

Very entertaining.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Yeah, that was a great episode. A little clunky and some forced dialog in parts, but that's understandable for a pilot. This series has the potential to be even greater than Arrow.
