    CW's The Flash is going to have another blatant nod to the '90s TheFlash show! John Wesley Shipp, the actor who played Flash back in that show, is currently playing Barry Allen's father in the CW series, and now another actor from that show is returning! Mark Hamill once played as James Jesse, a.k.a. Trickster, and it looks like he's going to play the Rogue in the new series, too! Below is the official character description.

    "In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights who helps Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil the city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original's deadly footsteps. The episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp who went up against him as the original 'Flash' on the CBS version."

    No Caption Provided

    Hamill will make his debut in the 17th episode and that'll air "sometime in 2015." Viners, do you think this is an awesome idea or are you feeling a little skeptical?

    Shrewd move. Any involvement with Hamill is sure to make comic fans excited and supportive. :)

    Hamill also played Trickster's voice in the JL cartoons.

    Just want to ask, is it Mark Hamill is busy with Disney Star Wars Universe ? I mean doesn't if he appear in The Flash tv show then probably Luke Skywalker will die or only have minor roles in Star Wars 7 movie ? After all we know The Flash is not just gonna be one season only. Just asking

    From the sound of the description, I imagine his role will be similar to Shipp's in that he'll only appear in short prison scenes. The 'wannabe Trickster' will probably be Axel Walker and will be a larger recurring character. The original trickster will probably have a few short cameos that won't be too much strain on his Star Wars schedule.

    Also:

    Good lord. Do something new for a change Mark Hamill.

    When you're already Luke Skywalker and the Joker, do you really need to be anything else?

    Yet more proof that The Flash is the best comic book show on the air right now

    Clancy Brown, Mark Hamill, the original 90's flash, and a great cast and plot line, this series is just pure win.

    It's all a bait and switch. He'll actually be reprising his role as Cockknocker, from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

    Considering how good his Trickster was in the one episode of JLU where he voiced him, I'm totally on board for this!

    i do not agree with bringing him back. I want this show to become its own, not a The 90's Flash Part 2.

    This is the same thing as Arrow copying from Batman.
