BREAKING NEWS! Robbie Amell is Ronnie Raymond on THE FLASH

Robbie Amell has been cast as Ronnie Raymond in the upcoming CW television show THE FLASH! Pinch yourself Match-heads, this is for real!!!!

Robbie Amell will play Ronnie Raymond on CW The Flash

The news has appeared in LOTS of places, but here are a few to check out:

From the TV Guide article:

The Tomorrow People alum, who is the real life cousin of Arrow star Stephen Amell, will play Ronnie Raymond, better known in the DC Comics universe as half of Firestorm. On The Flash, Ronnie is a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, whose fate is more complicated than first imagined. Ronnie plays an integreal part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into The Flash.

“Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg and myself designed the pilot and series to include Ronnie (aka Firestorm) — and to actually have someone with Robbie’s talent playing the role is beyond exciting,” executive producer Greg Berlanti said in a statement. “We can’t wait for viewers and fans of the character to check it out.”

Amell, who will first appear in the third episode, added: “I’m so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on The Flash. Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can’t wait to get started!”

Lots to discuss in the upcoming months, but just give yourself a few moments for this to sink in! We’re getting a live action Ronnie Raymond. Let’s cross our fingers for Firestorm as well!!

Congratulations to Robbie Amell on landing this role. We’re looking forward to his interpretation of the character.  Let’s be sure we give him a Firestorm family welcome!

Support Firestorm (and Robbie Amell)! Fan the flame!

  1. More importantly, he was Fred Jones on two made-for-TV Scooby-Doo movies from a few years back!

    I think he’ll make a good Ronnie. I smell a spin-off…

    Finally a live action version of Firestorm is going to happen. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.

  3. The best part of this news, Shag, is that Ronnie’s appearance will debut before Aquaman’s in the new Batman movie. If you’re not blathering about this to Rob during your Fire & Water Podcast recording right now, you’d better start!

    You must be so wrapped Shagg! I can’t wait for this either!!!

    BTW I’m back!

    With all of the Firestorm characters being backdoored into the Flash TV series, it’s like the old days of Firestorm being a backup in the pages of The Flash! Which is perfectly cool with me, to be honest. It’s been a good “off season” for the DC-CW shows, what with all of the casting news for The Flash plus the addition of Katana and Ray Palmer over on Arrow.
