British actor Jimmy Akingbola has joined Arrow Season 4 in the season-long role of Baron Reiter, who is better known in DC Comics lore as Baron Blitzkrieg.
The Baron is the head of the Shadowspire criminal organization, which in the next salvo of Arrow flashbacks will attempt to recruit a post-Hong Kong Oliver.
Akingbola’s previous TV credits include BBC One’s Holby City, Holby Blue and Doctors, and an episode of History’s Sons of Liberty.
Already for Season 4 (premiering Oct. 7), Arrow has cast Neal McDonough (Agent Carter) as Damien Darhk, Echo Kellum (as tech whiz Mr. Terrific) and Alexander Calvert (as the villain Anarky).
