Here's some good news for some of you ladies and gay boys, because there is about to be some serious man-candy being added to Arrow. TV Guide is reporting that actor Colton Haynes, who starred on the short-lived supernatural series The Gates and two seasons of Teen Wolf just nabbed a recurring role on the hit CW series.
Haynes will play Roy Harper, a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from 'the Glades,' the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City.". Harper will be introduced as a love interest to Thea Queen, who is "destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of Arrow."
This is major news, since DC Comics fans know Roy as 'Red Arrow', 'Speedy' or even 'Arsenal'. However, being that the first season will focus more on Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and his righting the wrongs of his family (as well as giving us more backstory on his years on the mysterious island), it's quite obvious we won't see him coming into his own as Red Arrow just yet.
The character is expected to show up in Early 2013 after the mid-season finale, and will be introduced to Oliver in "an unexpected way". Haynes joins Fringe star Seth Gabel (Vertigo), John Barrowman, Katie Cassidy, Stephen Amell and Colin Donnell in the cast of Arrow.
As a bonus I added the infamous pic of Colton kissing another guy before he became a known actor below...
