Things are moving rapidly over at The CW in their attempts to replace the superhero sized hole in their schedule left by Smallville.
Deadline is reporting that actor Stephen Amell has been cast in the lead role of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in their pilot called Arrow. You might have seen Amell in The Vampire Diaries or 90210, also on The CW, or on Private Practice or Hung. Or maybe you haven’t. (Ron definitely has.)
This could be a star making turn for Amell on the order of Tom Welling in Smallville… that is if the show gets picked up. Comic book TV shows haven’t had the best track record as of late.
This isn’t exactly how our Chris Arrant saw things yesterday, but what can you do? He’s not a psychic.
Oh, and it’s possible that we may have gotten our hands on a draft of the pilot script and it’s possible that we might have a review for you sometime in the future.
