In news surprising to no one since the producers behind The Flash and Arrow love Spartacus actors, Liam McIntyre has been tapped to play Mark Mardon, also known as the Weather Wizard, EW has confirmed.

Mark Mardon is the brother of Clyde Mardon (Chad Rook), who appeared as the Weather Wizard in the series premiere. Mark returns to Central City to get justice for his brother’s untimely death and uses his powers, similar to Clyde’s, to go on a rampage and find the man that shot Clyde: Joe West (Jesse L. Martin).

McIntyre, who will appear in episode 15, is the first Spartacus actor to make their way to The Flash after fellow alums Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Katrina Law, Nick Tarabay and Manu Bennett have all appeared on Arrow.

The Flash returns Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
