THE FLASH: Tom Felton Joins As Series Regular [The CW]

Tom Felton

Tom Felton joins the cast of The Flash in a regular role. The Harry Potter and Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor will play crime scene investigator Julian Dorn in the CW superhero show.

Felton, of course, is known among audiences worldwide for his portrayal as Draco Malfoy in all eight Harry Potter films. Cast as a friend and coworker of Barry Allen, Felton’s character is one of the few that suspects there’s more to his fellow crime scene investigator than meets the eye:

It was previously revealed that the The Flash Season 3 premiere will be titled “Flashpoint,” confirming that the new season will be based in part on the popular event story from DC Comics. In the event and the season 2 finale of The Flash, Barry went back in time to do what he couldn’t before: save his mother from dying at the hands of The Reverse Flash.

In the source material this resulted in some fundamental changes to the fabric of the DCU including Captain Cold being the hero of Central City, the Justice League not existing, Wonder Woman’s Amazonians and Aquaman’s Atlanteans being engaged in a worldwide war, Bruce Wayne being the one who died in the alley and not his parents inspiring his father to become Batman (and his mother The Joker), and Superman being kept in an underground base for years after being found by the military; among others. It’s unclear what sort of changes will blossom as a result of Barry’s actions in the series.

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.
