Flash Season 4 Thinker Cast

The Flash Casts Villainous Thinker, Adds Danny Trejo as [Spoiler]'s Dad

The Flash has put on its thinking cap and found its Season 4 Big Bad: Neil Sandilands (aka The 100‘s Titus) will play the villainous metahuman known as The Thinker, it was announced during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday.

Sandiland’s Clifford Devoe is “a megamind who embarks on a season-long battle” with the Scarlet Speedster, per the official description. He is “a true genius” who has “devised an intricate plan to fix all that he deems wrong with humanity.”

Kim Engelbrecht (Dominion) will play Devoe’s right hand, the DC Comics character The Mechanic. The truest of true believers, the highly intelligent engineer designs devices for The Thinker to help him implement his plan.

Additionally, Danny Trejo (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Sons of Anarchy) has been cast as Earth-19 bounty hunter Gypsy’s imposing father, Breacher. Also a feared bounty hunter, he seeks to prevent any inter-dimensional traveler from threatening life on his planet — especially his daughter’s. (Carlos Valdes on his reaction to the casting of Gypsy’s dad: “I pooped my pants,” he said during the panel.)

The Flash Season 4 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on The CW.

    Gonna be honest…seeing a nobody cast as the Flash’s big bad is disappointing especially in light of Arrow luring Michael freaking Emerson as a villain for that show

    • Dysturbed says:

      I see what you’re saying, but realistically almost everyone, including Michael Emerson, was at one point of their career a “nobody” until we got to (sometimes quickly) know them and they become a “somebody” to a wider audience. Maybe this will be that time for Clifford Devoe.

      • PatriciaLee says:

        And don’t forget the denials, head scratching and outrage over unknown Daniel (‘gasp’ blond) Craig as James Bond. Some actors just nail it in bringing the characterizations to life, plus with something fresh for the audiences. The other side of the coin is the old story about The Graduate audition, when Dustin Hoffman asked if he could redo the audition because he knew he had blown it.

    Good casting news. Looking forward to see Neil as The Thinker on the show and Danny Trejo too!

    I watch just about anything Danny Trejo is in. He’s such a great actor.
