'The Flash' to stage a 'Prison Break' reunion with Dominic Purcell
The Flash will hold a Prison Break reunion when Dominic Purcell, who starred opposite Wentworth Miller on the Fox drama, guest-stars on the Arrow spinoff, EW has confirmed.
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Purcell will play Mick Rory, otherwise 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).
As previously announced, Miller’s character will enter the story in episode four, but he won’t be seen onscreen until episode 10.
The duo aren’t the first Prison Break alums to make their way to the Arrow/Flash universe. Robert Knepper, who played The Clock King, is slated to reprise his role on The Flash, and Peter Stormare will play the new Count Vertigo in the season premiere of Arrow.
The Flash premieres Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
