The CW has found the title character depicter for its "Green Arrow" project. Stephen Amell, who played werewolf Brady in season 2 of "The Vampire Diaries", has been cast to play the superhero in the new drama pilot.

Dubbed a modern retelling of the story of DC Comics' character, the upcoming Green Arrow pilot will be directed by David Nutter with Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg writing as well as executive producing it.
