Arrow Recruits Once Upon a Time's David Anders

On Once Upon a Time, David Anders created a monster. On Arrow, he’ll play one.

The Alias alum will appear as a nasty criminal in an upcoming episode of The CW’s action drama, Zap2it reports.

Anders’ character, Cyrus Vanch, will arrive in Starling City fresh off a prison sentence. When the police can’t get the career baddie off the streets, Laurel will call on Arrow — which is precisely what Vanch wants. In a bid to become the leader of all of the city’s unsavory characters, Vanch will attempt to take Arrow down for good.

The actor, who also had a recurring role on The Vampire Diaries, will appear in this season’s Episode 13.

    What a fine casting choice, CW.

    You done good.

  2. Deej says:

    It helps that both shows film in Vancouver :)

  3. The show still needs to into Arrow’s “Lex Luthor”. But who is that? Brick? Speaking of Luthor, would that be the character Barrowman is playing?

  4. Blake says:

    I’ll second that

  5. Patricia says:

    Awsome casting. Loved him as Sark

  6. Dominique says:

    Damn, Arrow’s got a good casting director, they get the finest actors!

  7. Luke says:

    I’m getting kinda sick of this guy
    He’s been in: The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, Alias, Heroes, 24 and now Arrow.
    He is not even that talented or good looking

  8. Cat says:

    Have to start watching Arrow now. :)

  9. Caro says:

    He was such an awesome villian as Mr. Sark on Alias. I love him when he plays evil, so this episode will likely be my favorite of the season.

  10. POIFanatic says:

    He’ll always be the guy from Heroes who was in ancient China to me. I like him.

  11. Michelle says:

    Excellent news!

  12. ChuckieChk says:

    Could he be playing Natas, working with Deathstroke, Constantine Drakon, and other supervvillains?

  13. Beth says:

    Wait, I get Seth Gabel AND David Anders, along with the shirtless goodness of Stephen Amell??? Thank you, Santa Claus!

  14. Zorkel567 says:

    Awesome choice. Love doctor whale on once and am glad to see this guy in something else.

  15. Bk says:

    Damnit, he and Lincoln Lee are going to be on this show? I suppose I should start watching then.

  16. Jon says:

    Wow nice he’s showing up on all my favorite shows.

  17. Heather says:

    Hooray! I really love all the roles that David Anders chooses.

  18. Samantha says:

    I love Anders as a villain, but I sure hope he goes back to his roots and breaks out his British accent again. I know he’s not British, but to me he sounds weird with his regular American accent.

  19. Shadester says:

    well i gave up on arrow but i am going to have to tune in again for him!! I loved him on Alias.
