The cast of Arrow's third season continues to grow! Ray Palmer, Ra's al Ghul, Wildcat, Cupid, and others are set to play a role in upcoming episodes, and now the show's adding Danny "Brick" Brickwell to its world! In the comics, Brick's a very durable crime boss and the CW show will have him played by actor Vinnie Jones. It looks like he won't just be a villain-of-the-week, either. According to Variety, the foe will show his face in episodes 10, 11 and 12.

Will they give the actor any makeup so it looks like he has rougher skin or will they grant him some degree of invulnerability? Or maybe he'll just be a really, really tough dude with a high pain tolerance? No matter how they adapt the character, I'm sure many of us can agree that Jones is a solid choice if you need an intimidating villain. Are you excited to see Jones join the cast or do you think Season 3's getting a little too crowded? Share your thoughts with the world in the comments section below.
