Arrow casts Roy "Speedy" Harper

From http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=42629

The CW's "Arrow" is continuing its embrace of DC Comics mythology with the addition of "Teen Wolf" alum Colton Haynes in a recurring role as Roy Harper, TV Guide reports. He'll debut on the Feb. 20 episode, titled "Dodger."

The character has a long comic-book history, dating back to his introduction in 1941 as Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy and continuing through to the present in his identity as Arsenal. In between, he was a member of the Teen Titans and the Justice League, and an agent of Checkmate.

On "Arrow," Roy is "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), who's nicknamed "Speedy" (though for her partying ways rather than her proficiency with a bow). 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.'"

News of Haynes' casting arrives just two months after the surprise announcement that the 24-year-old actor wouldn't be returning for a third season of MTV's hit "Teen Wolf."

The midseason finale of "Arrow" airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

Guess they aren't going to have Thea pick up a bow anytime soon.

that's wacked...

Ollie:  "Hey Speedy."

Thea: "Yes?"

Roy: "Yo, what'up?"

Ollie: "Er, I meant Roy."

Thea: "Frag you Ollie!"

She will probably pick it up after they kill him off to avenge her boyfriend. Phone Post

Maybe they'll skip him becoming Speedy and have go right into being Arsenal.

I FUCKING HATE THE SISTER CHARACTER AND HOPE THEY KILL HER OFF..............NOT BEFORE STRIPPING HER NAKED OF COURSE. 

Sister doesn't bother me, it's his fucking best friend I can't stand. He couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.

Why name best friend after a villain in the DCU? There has to be a reason.
