Colton Haynes Given Regular Role As Roy Harper On Arrow

Colton Haynes has officially been bumped up to a regular role as Roy Harper on the seventh season of The CW’s Arrow.

Haynes has been involved with the series since its very first season, although his was only a recurring role at that time. He went on to become a regular for the show’s second season, but left following the end of Season 3. Strangely enough, the show’s creators decided to bring him back for a few guest spots, apparently culminating in the decision to reinstate him as a full-fledged member of the cast.

The trajectory of Haynes’ involvement is somewhat similar to John Barrowman, who debuted as the show’s big bad for Season 1 before returning in a few guest spots in Season 2 and, following that, a regular role once again.

Superherohype shares the following information about the show’s main cast as well as some of the supporting players:

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn, with Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. Manu Bennett is back as Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, and his son, Joe Wilson, is played by Liam Hall. Juliana Harkavy is playing Dinah Drake, David Nykl portrays Anatoly Knyazev, Michael Emerson is playing the big bad, Cayden James.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
