Ray Palmer is not the only new face in Felicity Smoak’s life.
Arrow has tapped Awkward and Glee alum Nolan Funk to play Felicity’s ex-beau in Season 3, TVLine has learned.
The actor will guest-star in Episode 5, aka the “Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak” hour, as Cooper Seldon (a Big Bang Theory shoutout?), the IT gal’s hacker boyfriend from her days at MIT.
Star Emily Bett Rickards broke the news on Thursday with the following photo and the message, “I’m so sorry @nolanfunk.” (We always knew Felicity kicked ass.)
Funk played Warbler Hunter Clarington on Glee before landing an arc as Jenna’s love interest on Awkward.
Season 3 of Arrow bows Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8/7c.
