We heard last month that the upcoming fourth season of The CW’s The Flash was set to add Ralph Dibny, aka Elongated Man, to its ranks, and now comes news on who’ll be playing this famed DC comic book character.

As per The CW and DC Entertainment, Saving the Human Race’s Hartley Sawyer has landed the Dibny gig. For the eagle-eyed of you out there, you’ll remember that Dibny was actually namedropped way back in The Flash’s first season, when he was listed as one of the fourteen people who died as a result of the particle accelerator explosion.

In terms of powers, Elongated Man is able to stretch his body to any shape or form. Additionally, Ralph Dibny is also a hugely skilled private investigator whose detective skills are almost at the level of a certain Dark Knight. In The Flash, he’ll use his abilities to help out Team Flash.

Sawyer joins the already-announced newcomers of Machete’s Danny Trejo as Earth-19 bounty hunter Breacher, Dominion’s Kim Engelbrecht as the badass Mechanic, and The 100’s Neil Sandilands as the ‘big bad’ of the season, Clifford Devoe, aka The Thinker.

The Flash’s premieres its fourth season on October 10th in the US, with a UK airing expected to follow shortly after that date.
