From supernatural to superhero!
Colton Haynes, a former cast member of the show Teen Wolf, has signed on for a MAJOR supporting role on Arrow.
The best part, though, is WHOM he shall be playing!!
Hayes will play Roy Harper, a marksman from The Green Arrow comic books that eventually becomes The Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy as well as also appearing in the Justice League as a one armed, drug addicted superhero named Red Arrow.
The producers on the show have been extremely tight lipped on Haynes' character, but they have described Roy Harper as:
"A handsome, street-savvy, teenager from 'the Glades,' the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City."
We're so excited we're about to scream!!!
Here's what the executive producer said about Hayes' hiring:
"We were big fans of Colton from Teen Wolf and we are thrilled he's joining Arrow."
Not only that - it also seems Haynes will be the love interest for Willa Holland and is:
"Destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of Arrow."
Haynes previously surprised everyone when he announced he would not be returning to the hit show Teen Wolf.
At first, that news made us so sad! And now that this young hottie is back in our lives on one of our favorite TV shows no less - we're back to being oh-so-glad!
