Classic DC comics villain the Top is going through gender reassignment to appear in the third season of The Flash. According to E!, Awkward star Ashley Rickards has been cast as the Top for the fourth episode of the season.
In the comics he’s Roscoe Dillon while in the show the Top’s secret identity will be Rosalind “Rosa” Dillon. Presumably she’ll have the same superpower: to spin round really, really fast without getting giddy and piking. In the episode she will be teaming up with the Mirror Master who will be played by Grey Damon.
“It is kind of the origin of Mirror Master,” says executive producer Aaron Helbing. “It’s the origin story of him, but it’s this struggle between Mirror Master and Captain Cold and you get to see who comes out on top,” adds fellow exec producer Todd Helbing.
So it looks like Wentworth Miller is back as well after leaving Legends Of Tomorrow and being placed on the same kind of cross-show contract that the producers have given John Barrowman (see here).
