He may not be wearing his classic red costume, but The Hollywood Reporter has the first look at Colton Haynes as Roy Harper on The CW’s Arrow. Does the red jacket count for anything?
The Teen Wolf alum will be introduced on the Feb. 20 episode of the hit drama as “a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from the Glades, the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City” who will serve as a love interest for Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) younger sister Thea (Willa Holland). According to the network, Roy is “destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of ‘Arrow.'”
That same episode, titled “Dodger,” will feature a guest appearance by Battlestar Galactica‘s James Callis as The Dodger, an elusive international jewel thief who forces innocent people to carry out his crimes.
Arrow, which was renewed Monday for a second season, airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
