Keiynan Lonsdale Speeds into a New Role!


In a not so surprising announcement, WB and The CW have announced they have found Wally West. Keiynan Lonsdale (The Divergent Series) has joined the cast as the nephew of Iris West (Candace Patton).

Keiynan Lonsdale Speeds into a New Role!From the DC Comics post yesterday:

Warner Bros. and The CW have announced that actor Keiynan Lonsdale will be joining The Flash this winter in the role of Wally West, an iconic character from the Flash Universe who became the speedster known as Kid Flash.

Flash Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said of the casting, “Just like when we met Grant for the first time, we instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero. We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show.”

This is another exciting step in the right direction for season two of The Flash.  With it’s cliff-hanger of a season one finale, we already have been teased of Jay Garrick presence within the series.  Actor Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex) will portray the Golden Age Flash as season two further explores the multiverse.
We loved the phenomenal first season of CW’s The Flash and cannot wait for it’s return on  Tuesday, October 6, at 8/7c on The CW.
