Professor Zoom and Killer Frost have been cast in The CW's new Flash TV series...

Joining Glee's Grant Gustin and Law & Order's Jesse L. Martin in forthcoming CW series, The Flash, will be The Vampire Diaries' Rick Cosnett and Bones' Danielle Panabaker, it's been announced.

The in-development Arrow spin-off, the pilot for which was originally planned as an Arrow episode before becoming a bigger-budget standalone episode, has now cast four regulars should the show receive a series order. First up was Gustin in the lead role as Barry Allen aka The Flash, then came Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, "Allen's surrogate father".

Today's news brings Detective Eddie Thawne (Cosnett) to the show as a version of Eobard Thawne, the character who (look away now spoiler-phobics) eventually becomes The Flash's enemy, Professor Zoom or Reverse Flash. Next comes Caitlin Snow (Panabaker), a STAR Labs bioengineering expert and soon-to-become Killer Frost.
