John Wesley Shipp to Recur on The Flash

During the 1990-91 TV season, As The World Turns and Guiding Light veteran John Wesley Shipp starred in the CBS version of The Flash. Two-and-a-half decades later, the actor (who went on to star in Dawson's Creek and One Life to Live) has been cast in a top secret role in The CW's upcoming version of Barry Allen's origin story.

Casting news for the Arrow spinoff has been ramping up. Scrubs and Royal Pains star Tom Cavanagh was recently cast as a genius physicist.

    WOW! I remember when he was “The Flash”, Aaron loved that show when he was 7-8 years old and watched faithfully each week. He was heartbroken when the show was cancelled….no so much for myself & Dominic….what can I say it was geared towards kids. :bigsmile:

    But JS was excellent in both GL & especially on ATWT as Doug Cummings stalking both Kim\Frannie, played the the fabulous Julianne Moore.

    JS won an daytime Emmy on one of the shows for his portrayal. I believe is it on ATWT off the top of my head? Not sure maybe I’m confused but I was thinking he won. :~
