Spartacus actor Nick Tarabay has been cast in The CW’s Arrow as Digger Harkness, a.k.a. Captain Boomerang. Tarabay, who also played a Klingon in Star Trek Into Darkness, will appear in multiple episodes of Arrow‘s upcoming season.

Captain Boomerang, a DC villain who first appeared in 1960, has been most commonly associated with The Flash and has even held a spot on The Rogues, a group of super villains dedicated to taking down The Flash. He has also been associated with the Suicide Squad, a team which were heavily featured in Arrow‘s second season. Captain Boomerang was last seen on the small screen voiced by Greg Ellis in Batman: Assault on Arkham, a Suicide Squad focused DC animated film. As his name implies he uses boomerangs as his main weapons. On Arrow, Captain Boomerang will be portrayed as a disgruntled ex-A.R.G.U.S. operative who has a vendetta against his former organization.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, October 8 at 8/7c on The CW. Feel free to let us know your thoughts on this latest casting decision in the comments.
