Erstwhile Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes has landed a recurring role on Arrow.
The actor, who in early October hinted at his departure from the MTV hit, joins the CW drama as Roy Harper, a “handsome, street-savvy” teen who falls for Oliver’s little sister, TV Guide Magazine reports.
Fans of DC Comics will likely recall that Haynes’ soon-to-be alter ego has taken on many iterations since his 1941 inception, including Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy and the Justice League’s Red Arrow. Little is known, however, about how he’ll factor into Arrow‘s mythology, other than that he’s said to be a very “important player.”
Haynes — who played Kanima-turned-werewolf Jackson Whittemore during the first two seasons of Teen Wolf — is slated to make his Arrow debut in 2013.Follow @MegMasters
