Danish actor Casper Crump will portray the scoundrel in the upcoming Arrow/Flash spinoff, the network announced Tuesday.
Per the official character description, Vandal Savage has “spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world.” (Anyone else have “Sympathy for the Devil” in their heads now?)
Like Falk Hentschel, whose casting as Hawkman broke yesterday, Crump will make his debut in this season’s crossover episodes of The Flash and Arrow. He will recur on Legends of Tomorrow, set for a midseason premiere.
In addition to several Danish TV shows, Crump will appear in the upcoming film Tarzan.
