Less than a week after the roles were announced at Comic-Con, The CW’s Arrow has cast both Mr. Terrific and Anarky.
Echo Kellum, whose TV credits include Ben & Kate and Sean Saves the World, will play Curtis Holt aka Mr. Terrific. Though his namesake in DC Comics lore — Michael Holt, the second Mr. Terrific — was an Olympic decathlete/black belt/all-around brainiac (but not Brainiac) and eventual Justice Society leader, Arrow will introduce Curtis as a tech whiz who works for Felicity at Palmer Technologies, EW.com reports.
TVLine’s Inside Line column first reported on the casting call for the character.
Meanwhile, Alexander Calvert, who has appeared in episodes of A&E’s The Returned and Bates Motel, has been cast as Anarky, a DC Comics villain most often pitted against Batman.
Arrow Season 4 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7.
