Blindspot star Joe Dinicol has landed a recurring role on Arrow in season 5, EW has learned exclusively.

Dinicol, who played Patterson’s ill-fated boyfriend David on the NBC series, will portray Rory Regan, the mystical DC Comics vigilante known as Ragman. Fresh from a personal tragedy, Rory hopes to find answers in Star City, where he ultimately crosses paths with Green Arrow (Stephen Amell).

Dinicol, whose credits also include The L.A. Complex and Grey’s Anatomy, will first appear in the second episode of season 5.

The actor joins an ever-expanding list of new and returning characters in season 5, including Chad L. Coleman as a new villain; Madison McLaughlin, who will reprise her role as Evelyn Sharp; Tyler Ritter as new cop Detective Malone; Rick Gonzalez, who will play Wild Dog; Carly Pope as a new Star City reporter; and Josh Segarra, who will take up the mantle of the Vigilante.
