The Flash Recruits General Hospital's Roger Howarth for Recurring Role

The Flash Roger Howarth

Roger Howarth is back in the newspaper business.

Having previously played One Life to Live’s tabloid titan Todd Manning (before segueing to General Hospital, where he currently plays Franco — don’t ask), Howarth has booked a recurring role on The CW’s freshman hit The Flash, as award-winning reporter Mason Bridge.

Per our sister site Deadline, Mason will oversee aspiring journo Iris West as he digs into the truth about disgraced S.T.A.R. Labs honcho Dr. Harrison Wells aka Barry Allen’s mentor. He first airs in Episode 11.

Howarth’s previous primetime TV credits include Californication, Dawson’s Creek and ABC’s short-lived Prey.
