Michael Ironside Joins ‘The Flash’ As Papa Snart

CW’s “The Flash” has cast veteran character actor Michael Ironside as Lewis Snart, father to Central City super-criminals Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Lisa Snart/Golden Glider (Peyton List).  It was already hinted in the first season that their father was abusive, in addition to being a criminal himself, so look to that to inform their interaction this coming season.

And interact they will!  Lewis will be released from prison and ready to start some trouble in the upcoming second season’s third episode, airing on October 20th.  Miller and List will also guest star, which is no shock given the episode’s title: “Family of Rogues”.  Perhaps tangling with their evil father will be the event that turns Captain Cold from villain to antihero, ahead of his move to “Legends of Tomorrow” in early 2016?

Speaking of “Legends“, CW has also issued a second teaser for the upcoming series…
