Tom and Grant: The Flash stars debut inept bank robbers in first official trailer
Fans of The Flash will soon get an extra dose of Tom Cavanagh and Grant Gustin in their upcoming short film Tom and Grant — and EW has an exclusive first look at the trailer.
The short film, which was written and directed by Cavanagh, stars The Flash actors as two brazenly inept thieves who attempt to rob a bank without a plan, a clue — or even a gun.
“Part of the subtext to all of this thing that I wrote and directed is political, about the political times that we’re living in, but the presentation is completely comic; it’s dark comic,” Cavanagh tells EW. “The thing that appeals to both Grant and I, and it’s not something that we get to do often, but the idea of somebody who thinks they’re really, really smart, but in truth is really, really dumb. I find that to be extremely appealing, character-wise. In this scenario, we play Tom and Grant, the two most inept bank robbers ever. It’s R rated; it’s not for the family. It’s got blood and gun-play and heists and car chases, and I think that it’s something that both Grant and I are phenomenally excited about putting before the public.”

After the success of Arrow, Barry Allen (a.k.a. the Flash) gets his own CW treatment in this comic-themed spin-off.
