What is UP with all this cross-genre casting?? Don’t these network fools know the damage they’re causing to the space-time continuum??

First it was Arya Stark getting cast in Doctor Who season 9 – now, Doctor Who alumnus Arthur Darvill a.k.a. the beloved Rory Williams, has been cast in the upcoming Flash/Arrow spinoff.

And he’ll be playing – wait for it – a time traveler!

In fact, his character Rip Hunter is “a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.”

Together with Ciara Renee, who’s just been cast as Hawkgirl, that makes two of three DC Comics characters that will feature on the show, who have not yet been on the small screen.
