Big fandom crossover news today! Harry Potter alum Tom Felton has booked a regular TV role on The CW’s The Flash.
According to TV Line, the Draco Malfoy actor will be playing Julian Dorn, “a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen [played by Grant Gustin] than just his good guy reputation.”
The character appears to be entirely new, and not pulled from the comic series that The CW drama is based on.
Felton has booked a slew of roles since his time playing Draco Malfoy in the eight-part Harry Potter series, but a series regular role on The Flash will arguably be his biggest post-Potter gig to date.
Last month we learned that The Flash was bringing back Tom Cavanagh. Like Felton, he’ll be a series regular.
Felton’s Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint booked a starring role in a new CBS series co-starring Stephen Fry a couple years ago, but the network decided against ordering a full season. Looks like Felton will have better luck breaking into American television.
The Flash returns October 4. See a complete list of 2016 Fall TV premiere dates here!
