As DC Universe’s live-action Swamp Thing continues to flesh out its core cast, the series has brought in Ian Ziering.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, the Sharknado star has landed the recurring role of Daniel Cassidy, better known as Blue Devil. In the show, this take on Cassidy has him pegged as a fading stuntman-turned-movie star who is desperate for another shot at the big time.
In the comics, Blue Devil is a character who has been both hero and villain. Cassidy initially played Blue Devil in the movies, although an encounter with a demon ended up with Daniel Cassidy and his Blue Devil suit fusing together. From there, Cassidy decided to embrace his new look and persona, becoming a legitimate hero. Well, at that point in time, for he would later sell his soul for fame – but that itself was followed by a heroic resurrection.
Swamp Thing is set to premiere on DC Universe next year.
