Watch out, Oliver Queen. There’s a new Vigilante in town.
Deadline is reporting that Josh Segarra has been cast in the series-regular role as Star City’s newest vigilante for this upcoming fifth season.
Segarra will play Adrian Chase, “Star City’s new district attorney and an ally of Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who aims to clean up the streets through the legal system.”
In the comics, “Adrian Chase and his alter ego the Vigilante first appeared in the 1983 New Teen Titans Annual #2. A New York City district attorney whose family was killed by mobsters, Chase sought justice in his own way. In the comics, Chase has strong ties to Deathstroke, who was a major character on Arrow. ”
Segarra joins previous Arrow cast member Echo Kellum, who was upped to series regular for season five.
Arrow returns Wednesdays this fall on The CW.
