Purcell will play Mick Rory a.k.a. the villainous Heat Wave on The CW's series, joining his former on-screen brother who has been cast as Leonard Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold.
"The Flash" will stage a mini "Prison Break" reunion. The CW's new show has added "Prison Break" alum Dominic Purcell to the cast after previously hiring his former co-star Wentworth Miller.
On the upcoming adaptation of DC Comics' property, Purcell will play Mick Rory who is also known as DC Comics villain Heat Wave, a pyromaniac who finds an outlet for his obsession when he teams up with Leonard Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold (Miller). Miller will make his debut in episode four, while Purcell's Heat Wave will appear later, but they are going to star together in episode ten.
Miller and Purcell played brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows respectively on FOX's "Prison Break", which ran from 2005 until 2009. Their co-star on the prison drama, Robert Knepper who has appeared as The Clock King on "Arrow", is set to reprise his role on "The Flash".
"The Flash" is slated to debut Tuesday, October 7 at 8 P.M. on The CW. Grant Gustin stars as the titular character after making his debut as Barry Allen in season 2 of "Arrow".
