Doug Jones to Play DC's Deathbolt in ARROW

TV News

In some casting news, the brilliant Doug Jones has joined ARROW as Jake Simmons, aka Deathbolt. Jones is known for a wide variety of roles, although he is likely best known for his appearances in the likes of the HELLBOY movies, PAN’S LABYRINTH, FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER, and FALLING SKIES.

IGN is reporting the casting, adding that Simmons will debut in the nineteenth episode of the show’s current season. For those not familiar with the character, he debuted back in May 1983’s ALL-STAR SQUADRON #21, created by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway. His main ability is that he can control lightning and electricity, although in ARROW he’s being tweaked and will instead be able to control plasma energy.

Most notably, this marks the first time that a meta-human will debut on ARROW, with those characters so far reserved for sister show THE FLASH.
