Veteran actor and genre legend Michael Ironside is coming to The Flash Season 2!
Ironside will make his guest appearance in the third episode of The Flash’s second season as Lewis Snart, the career criminal father of Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Lisa Snart/Golden Glider (Peyton List). Both Miller and List will also reprise their roles in the episode.
The third episode is entitled “A Family of Rogues,” and it will pick up with Lewis Snart newly released from prison as he embarks on a dangerous plan that will put both of his children in jeopardy. In the DC Universe, Lewis Snart was referred to as an abusive father who drove his son, Leonard to spend more time with his grandfather when he was a child. Leonard Snart’s experience on his grandfather’s ice truck led to his lifelong fascination with the cold.
Ironside has geek cred that few actors can match, with appearances in Top Gun, Starship Troopers, Terminator Salvation (pictured above), Scanners, Highlander II: The Quickening, X-Men: First Class, and Total Recall. On television, Ironside has starred in Seaquest 2032, V: The Series, and lent his voice to Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League, and Wolverine and the X-Men.
“A Family of Rogues” may also be the springboard that shifts Captain Cold into DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, a new series that will premiere at midseason on The CW.
The Flash will return to the CW for its second season on Tuesday, October 6.
