It’s father-son bonding, Flash style!
The CW on Friday released new images from the series’ Oct. 7 premiere, which include a tender shot of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) speaking with his incarcerated father, played by John Wesley Shipp, who originally donned the suit on CBS’ short-lived ’90s version of The Flash.
“Given his history with The Flash, [executive producers] Andrew [Kreisberg], Geoff [Johns] and I could only think of one person we wanted to play Barry’s father and that was John Wesley Shipp,” EP Greg Berlanti said of Shipp’s casting back in May. “He gives a fantastic and emotional performance in the pilot and we are looking forward to his presence in many more episodes.”
