BREAKING NEWS! Victor Garber is Professor Martin Stein on THE FLASH

Victor Garber has been cast as Professor Martin Stein in upcoming episodes of CW’s new hit show, THE FLASH! 

Absolutely brilliant casting! My favorite character from the Firestorm mythos being played by an outstanding actor! Hot dog!

Victor Garber is Professor Martin Stein on The Flash, part of Firestorm

The Hollywood Reporter announced:

Alias alum Victor Garber, known for his Emmy-nominated turn as Jennifer Garner’s father on the beloved spy drama, has booked a major recurring role on The CW’s The Flash, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

First appearing in the 12th episode, Garber will play DC Comics character Dr. Martin Stein, who becomes one-half of Firestorm.

Dr. Stein is a brilliant but arrogant nuclear physicist who has sacrificed everything, including a marriage, for his work in transmutation. After he discovers the particle accelerator fused him with the younger, more impulsive Ronnie Raymond (Tomorrow People’s Robbie Amell), he races to find a way to separate the two before it’s too late.

Lots to discuss in the upcoming months, but just give yourself a few moments for this to sink in! Sounds like we might be seeing Firestorm in live action within the next 12 weeks!

Congratulations to Victor Garber 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 Victor Garber)! Fan the flame!

    I am not familiar with Garber, but am still waiting impatiently to see how Firestorm comes off. Another choice for Stein for me would be David McCallum, mostly due to the voice. But he’s quite busy, I know.

    “Brilliant but arrogant”? Not sure if that’s the Martin Stein I know. And by the description, I hope this won’t mean that Firestorm will be all too temporary in this universe.

  2. Martin Stein Returns says:

    I would have said Martin was “brilliant but befuddled”.

    I love Victor Garber. Loved him ever since he played John Wilkes Booth in the Sondheim musical “Assassins.” He was also, I believe, the original Jesus in Godspell.

  3. Wow, that is great casting! I smell a spin-off.


  4. Joe X says:

    Victor Garber is a great actor, and will make a fine addition to the cast of “Firestorm and his Atomic Friends (plus the Flash)”.

  5. Martin Gray says:

    Oh wow, what a great piece of casting – if things get dull Victor can sing a few showtunes! I can’t wait until we get this show in the UK.

  6. Roy Cleary says:

    Since Kyle MacLachlan is returning to Twin Peaks, i’m okay with Garber in the Professor role. Hope they do our boy justice.

    Did you guys notice Multiplex in the Flash previews? Not much to tell, just a guy in black? attire. And since the Weather Wizard didn’t go by his villain name (yet) I doubt we will hear the name Multiplex. But still looking forward to all things Firestorm on the Flash.

    One word – brilliant.

    Here is hoping they enact the “floating ghostly head” effect…

  9. CraigMD says:

    Great actor. I know Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) makes his debut in episode 3 but I think that might just be in flashbacks. We probably won’t get to see Firestorm (Ronnie/Prof. Stein merged) until episode 12.

    Oh my god, oh my god! Another girlish scream!
