Tom “Draco Malfoy” Felton will be a series regular on The Flash when it returns in the fall, as one of Barry Allen’s new co-workers at the Central City Police Department. Will he play a villain? (Does he ever not play a villain?) And what will his role mean in the season three’s Flashpoint storyline?


TV Line reports that the Harry Potter film series vet, who’s fond of playing guys you love to hate (he’s also played a suspected killer on TNT’s Murder in the First and a cruel primate-shelter worker in Rise of the Planet of the Apes), will portray “Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation.”

So he’s a snoop who snoops on his fellow snoops? Make of that what you will. Felton is slated to appear “early during Season 3,” but exactly how he fits into The Flash’s continuity now that Barry has reset the timeline is unknown.


The Flash returns to the CW on October 4.

So...he trades in a kid with a lightning bolt on his forehead for a dude with a lightning bolt on his chest?

Talk about narrow typecasting!
