The Flash Casts BSG Vet as The Turtle, Villain Who Slows Down Time

Aaron Douglas Flash

Aaron Douglas just landed one shell of a role.

The Battlestar Galactica alum will play The Turtle in The Flash‘s midseason premiere, per EW.com.

Douglas’ Turtle, a variation on the DC Comics character, will be able to slow time and therefore thwart Barry’s attempts to get faster in order to best Zoom.

In addition to his run as Galactica‘s Chief Galen Tyrol, Douglas’ TV credits include Hellcats, The Bridge, The Killing, Hemlock Grove and A&E’s The Returned.

The Flash returns to The CW on Tuesday, Jan. 19 (8/7c).
