Tom Cavanagh (ED) has been cast as a genius physicist on the Arrow spin off called The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter broke the  news that Cavanagh will join Grant Gustin (who will play the Flash) in the series pilot. 

The Hollywood Reporter had this to say about Cavanagh’s character: “Cavanagh has been cast in the main role of Harrison Wells, described as a rock star in the world of physics. The mind and money behind Central City's S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator, he becomes a pariah after the lab's explosion, but charts his path to redemption when he discovers that his failed experiment had the unintended consequence of creating the world's fastest man”.

Along side Gustin and Cavanagh The Flash will feature Jessie L. Martin (as Detective West), Candice Patton (as Iris, The Flash’s love interest), Danielle Panabaker (as Caitlin Snow), and Rick Cosnett (as Detective Eddie Thawne). The only main role still open is Hartley Rathaway aka The Pied Piper.
