According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sleepy Hollow actor Clancy Brown will be joining the cast of the upcoming Flash television series as Wade Eiling AKA The General. Brown's first appearance on the new show will be in the 5th episode.
Brown will play General Wade Eiling, also known as The General, the head of a black ops army team pursuing Plastique (Kelly Frye) in the hopes of using her as a human weapon. Described as a tall and imposing man, with "a face carved from years of duty," Eiling is fanatically intent on protecting American interests around the world and may have ties to a central Flash character.
Whether or not he'll actually become the super-powered character, The General, who took over Shaggy Man's body, is still a mystery, but at least we know for sure that he will be working with some super-powered beings on this new show. In the comics, Eiling is the man responsible for the creation of Captain Atom and Major Force. Since the New 52, he has appeared in CAPTAIN ATOM and later issues of THE FURY OF FIRESTORM but hasn't been seen recently. The Flash will air on October 7th, 2014.
