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. 8 Responses harlee490 February 12, 2014 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. :~ Log in to Reply LauraWrightCrazy February 12, 2014 Loved him as The Flash!! & love the new Flash!! I’m thrilled!

Log in to Reply SonnySprocket February 14, 2014 I am guessing that he will play Jay Garrick, the Golden Age Flash, or Johnny Quick.
