I promise this is the cheapest (i.e. least fair) entry in our gallery. Gustin has the distinct honor of being the only person on this list to have appeared on all four of The CW’s DC superhero shows — Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl — all of which were preceded by his stint on 90210.
STEPHEN AMELL (5 shows)
Amell kept his look simple during his early CW days, when he snagged guest spots on 90210 and The Vampire Diaries. Then came Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow — and things got real hairy.
ERICA CERRA (5 shows)
Long before raising hell on The 100, Cerra made a name for herself with appearances on iZombie, Supernatural, Smallville and Reaper. (Guys, remember Reaper?!)
NICK ZANO (5 shows)
Before going all Blue Steel™ on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, Zano showed off his soaper side on 90210, Melrose Place and 7th Heaven.
PEYTON LIST (5 shows)
She hasn’t always had the best luck in the renewal department (R.I.P., Frequency and The Tomorrow People!), but List will always have a home on other CW shows. Her resume also includes roles on The Flash, 90210 and Smallville.
CHRIS WOOD (5 shows)
Before he was wooing the cape off of Kara Danvers via Supergirl and The Flash, Wood was either busy saving people (Containment), killing people (The Vampire Diaries), or playing a major role in their sexual awakening (The Carrie Diaries). Either way, he’s been around for a bit.
COLIN LAWRENCE (6 shows)
Before calling the shots as Riverdale‘s Coach Clayton, Lawrence was stirring up trouble on Supernatural, iZombie, The 100, Arrow and Smallville.
KATIE CASSIDY (7 shows)
Which brings us to Cassidy, the (mostly) undisputed queen of The CW. In addition to three DC series — Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow — she also held down huge roles on Melrose Place, Gossip Girl and Supernatural.
(And, yes, we’re counting her episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway?)
JASON DOHRING (7 shows)
Dohring may tie Cassidy in terms of CW roles, but the fact that he managed to reach that number without dipping his toe in the DC superhero pond is a remarkable feat indeed. Currently wreaking glorious havoc on iZombie, Dohring’s CW past includes appearances on The Originals, The Messengers, The Tomorrow People, Ringer, Supernatural and, of course, Veronica Mars. Long live the King of The CW!
