Dominic Purcell Cast as Heatwave for CW's The Flash

It's a Prison Break reunion and all the rogues are invited.

He will be appearing along with Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller who is playing Captain Cold. Both Miller and Purcell will make their debut in episode four of the first season.

Could this be the start of a full-fledged team of Rogues in the Flash's future? The cast of characters continues to grow as Clancy Brown plays General Wade Eiling Robbie Amell is playing one half of Firestorm. Also, the first episode features Stephen Amell aking a cameo as Arrow.

What do you guys think of the casting? What other Rogues would you like to see on this show?

How about Ralph Dibny? Doesn't even have to be as the Elongated Man, he could just be Ralph Dibny. No clue who could play him, though.

I always thought of Captain Cold and Heat Wave as brothers.

Let's hope he's a better Heatwave than he was a Vampire in Blade 3.

I wanted him to be Mirror master he has an awesome ability that could be exploited for a good blockbuster movie

That is a poor choice.

T-Bag is already Clock King. He was excellent, but a bit underused. I think he's supposed to return either Flash or Arrow now.
