V-Wars Adrian Holmes

Arrow vet Adrian Holmes‘ next role is a real bloodsucker: The actor — who recurred on the aforementioned CW drama as police captain Frank Pike — has joined Netflix’s upcoming vampire drama V-Wars, starring Ian Somerhalder, our sister site Deadline reports.

In the series, Dr. Luther Swann (Somerhalder) enters a world of horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend (Holmes) into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. Jacky Lai (Beyond) co-stars as a struggling online journalist.

Holmes’ other TV credits include Continuum, Supernatural and the Canadian drama 19-2.
