'Arrow/Flash' Spin-Off Adds 'Edge of Tomorrow' Star to the Cast

British actor Franz Drameh will play Jay Jackson, a former high school athlete whose pro career was derailed by an injury.

AceShowbiz - The cast of "Arrow" / "The Flash" spin-off is growing with the addition of Franz Drameh. The British actor, who had a role in Tom Cruise's "Edge of Tomorrow" (2014), is joining the yet-to-be-titled project which is being developed at The CW.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Drameh will play "Jay Jackson, a former high school athlete who was injured in a debilitating accident. He has been scraping by as an auto mechanic, and will grow to have a surprising affiliation with the STAR Labs team."

While his character's name is not familiar to comic book fans, it's possible that he will play a hero/character who already exists in the DC Comics Universe.

Drameh joins Ciara Renee and Arthur Darvill who are tapped to play Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders and the Traveler/Rip Hunter respectively. The returning stars, meanwhile, include Brandon Routh as Ray/The Atom, Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein a.k.a. half of Firestorm, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, and Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/Canary.
