Starship Troopers' Clancy Brown has landed a villainous role in The Flash…

As CW’s Arrow spin-off The Flash draws closer, more and more of the pieces are clicking into place.

We already know several of the villains, and received a new teaser trailer late last week. Now, we’ve heard of another actor set to be joining the show.

Clancy Brown, who played Captain Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption and Sargent Zim in Starship Troopers, has joined the show as General Wade Eiling, known better as The General. Is there an army title he hasn't held on screen?

Brown is no stranger to comic book roles, having played Red-Hulk, Lex Luthor, Odin and Taskmaster in a long string of voice-acting roles.

In The Flash, his character will be a black ops expert attempting to capture Kelly Frye’s Plastique in an attempt to weaponize her.

The Flash kicks off on October 7 in the US, details of the UK release date have been scarce so far. More as we hear it.
