Billioniare bad boy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is presumed dead after being shipwrecked on a deserted island for five long years, but when he's discovered he returns to Starling City a different man, donning the alter ego The Green Arrow in order to avenge the wrongs of his family and rebuild his city to its former glory.
Based on the DC Comics character that originated in the 1940s, the producers of Arrow have promised viewers a show that feels less like a comic book and more like Jason Bourne film.
His skill-set is that he’s an archer, but he also have physical strength and prowess. He’s clever and able to devise ways of taking down a bad guy that are unique and fun to watch,” said CW development head Thom Sherman.
Stephen Amell: Taking on the mantle of the decades-old comic book character The Green Arrow/billionare bady boy Oliver Queen is bona fide babe Stephen Amell. If Stephen looks like a familiar face to you, that's because he's had extended play on shows like 90210 and The Vampire Diaries.
Katie Cassidy: Katie Cassidy is a fave among fans of [kwlink 26910]Gossip Girl /kwlink] and is set to play opposite Stephen as Laurel Lance, a pro-bono lawyer who is Oliver's childhood friend and ex-girlfriend and the daughter of Detective Lance. Katie gushed about working with Stephen:
“They hadn’t cast the Arrow yet and I waited until they had done that, but reading the script, I pictured Stephen before I even knew who Stephen was. Once he got cast, it was a perfect fit.”
Willa Holland: Willa Holland, who you may also recognize from Gossip Girl, will be taking on the role of Thea Queen, although it has not been confirmed how many episodes the young starlet is signed to.
Arrow is set to premiere October 10th at 8 PM on The CW.
