The Flash S&S #23: Casting now for John Jay Jordan & Wendy Patty Felicity

ϟThe Flash ϟ



Barry Allen was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West, the father of Barry’s best friend, Iris. Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along.

Barry’s latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells and his STAR Labs team, who claim that this invention will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling, and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find his life has changed once again – the accident has given him the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel.

Barry has always had the heart of a hero and now he has the legs to match, but he quickly learns that being a superhero is not as easy as it seems -- and he can’t do it alone. While Barry struggles to understand his new abilities, the people around him also have to adjust to a new reality. Joe West, Barry’s surrogate father, is coming to grips with the fact that the world of the extraordinary actually does exist. Joe thought he understood what it meant to chase criminals, but now he’s facing opponents who can do more than just rob a bank, they can control the weather. Though he knows this remarkable turn of events is Barry’s destiny, every time Barry faces danger, Joe is terrified for his surrogate son. While Joe worries about Barry, Barry worries about Joe’s daughter Iris, and how his new life as The Flash will change their relationship. Iris and Barry grew up together, and she has always believed in Barry’s conviction that unknown forces were at work the night his mother was killed. Barry has kept his romantic feelings for Iris hidden, and now feels he must protect her by keeping his new identity a secret as well. And Iris has a secret of her own -- she has been dating her father’s partner, Detective Eddie Thawne, who is such a good guy, even Barry finds it hard to hate him. Still, there is tension between Barry and Thawne, who is jealous of Iris’ newfound fascination with The Flash and is determined to unmask him. Barry realizes that keeping the secret of his new identity separates him from Iris, even as her growing obsession with uncovering the truth brings her ever closer to The Flash.

Barry has found another kind of surrogate family in the team at Harrison Wells’ S.T.A.R. Labs. Wells himself is quickly becoming a second father figure to Barry, who learned about morality and justice from Joe, and is now learning about science and technology from Wells. Wells’ ultimate agenda remains somewhat mysterious, but Barry is excited by the grander worldview that has been opened for him, and the friendship he’s building with S.T.A.R. lab team members Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon. For Caitlin, who lost her fiancé in the catastrophic explosion, working with Barry is providing a much- needed sense of purpose and a way to deal with her grief. Caitlin’s excitement at seeing Barry learn to use his new power is balanced by her growing concern for his safety – she and Cisco have both learned that accidents have devastating consequences. Cisco was a close friend of Caitlin’s fiancé and secretly blames himself for the tragedy. A mechanical genius who comes up with amazing gadgets that help Barry control his speed, Cisco is happy to suddenly have a new project –- and a new friend –- in Barry.

While he struggles to combine these two very different groups of people into a crime-fighting unit, Barry is still excited every day by his newfound powers. He is also shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using the new powers for good. In the months since the accident, the city has seen a sharp increase in missing people, unexplained deaths and other strange phenomena. Barry now has a renewed purpose – using his gift of speed to protect the innocent, while never giving up on his quest to solve his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.

TVLine's description of John:
Quote:
Arrow is seeking an Iris West type… No, just kidding. (Too soon?) The Flash, however – in addition to Wendy – is casting the season-long role of a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man “with an edge.” The casting call lists the character as “John Clark,” which is obviously fake/a nod to the DC Comics letterer.
And this is dialogue I typed up from the Youtube casting clip

Quote:
"John":
I'm tired of scaring people. I'm tired of scaring myself with the things I can do...Barry ran off so easy when that particle accel exploded. Who doesn't want to run fast?

Caitlin:
Barry's abilities pose their own challenges, trust me. With you, John, you could be something more powerful than we've ever seen before.

"John":
With great power comes great responsibility. Never been real big on responsibility. Guess that's gonna have to change...bummer.

So this guy is important enough to stick around all season. And he's a bit older, but not too old, so Ollie's bracket. I honestly don't have any guesses other than Hal Jordan. Jay or Max Mercury are speedsters, so they're out. Who is left?

I feel like early-forties would be too old for Hal, though. I they're going to bring him in, he'd likely be somewhere around either Barry or Oliver's age, as they would likely have long term plans for him to stay around if it is Hal Jordan. Plus, it sounds almost like he has powers, rather than boosted from a power ring.

It shouldn't matter how. Hal is supernatural since the ring isn't like an armor or anything, it alters him physiologically while he wears it. I think the point of the age is to cast him around Oliver's, which is the age Barry should've been too (many were annoyed he wasn't). Funny thing is, a few months ago, I was reading a discussion about Hal on Flash, and how he'd hit on Caitlin if she ran tests on him. Whoever John is, he has every aspect of Hal's personality down perfectly.

But Hal or not, if this dude is sticking all season, and Ronnie is sticking too, that doesn't leave much room for Wally. I kinda wonder if he'll have 2-3ep arc for his origin story on Flash, then get shuffled off to LoT (I want our own Wally!).

i hope they don't have Iris say something definitive to Barry in the first episode, like "we can never be together because of Eddie" or something.

that'd be overkill.
