Stephen Amell To Star In The Starz Drama ‘Heels’

I feel like Starz is just like: give me all your money. And here’s me, gladly handing it all over to them.

Arrow is coming to an end and we have to admit that we’ve been curious as to what Stephen Amell is going to do next. Sure, we may not be the biggest fans of Arrow lately, but we’re loyal to that man.

Well, it was announced what he is doing next this AM, and it assured that we are not cancelling our Starz subscription anytime soon.

The actor will be headlining the Starz show, Heels, an 8-episode drama series at Starz about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of  pro wrestling. Not even a wrestling fan, but we’re about to be.

Heels is about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small town pro wrestling. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals — one of them played by Amell — war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel (Amell). But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind.

Kinda excited to see Stephen play the role of a villain.

Also, this role fits him. Do we remember the days of him and the WWE? I do. It was the only time I allowed it to be turned on in my presence.

Anyone else looking forward to this?
