I mean don't get me wrong, Silver Surfer, I'm more than fine with who you suggested, I just doubt the producers want actresses so ambiguous looking for their "specifically black" Iris West.
Like there's no way to me they're going to cast a "white" black woman as black Iris West if that makes sense if they're so dead set on her being black the way I see it. It kind of almost defeats the purpose of her being black in the first place, like why not just cast a red/auburn haired white chick if that's what they're going to do, you know? They're already so close...
I hear you, I honestly can't think of any other young black actress that's CW enough though. Kat graham is on TVD, Lauren London is on the Game. Maybe they'll cast a fresh face I guess.
It's funny because it really seems like it would be much easier to just cast her as she looks in the comics - what they want seems like an uphill battle, casting a white chick as a, well, white character seems like it'd be much less difficult in this particular case. But whatever really, I just don't want to see a bunch of cutesie CW god-forbid-I-call-it-romance stuff that has me changing the channel until an action scene or something cool happens.
Two others that could fit I guess
They're both light skinned as well. Can't find a young Gabrielle Union for the life of me. Pretty sure the casting directors are gonna face the same problem.
Heather Hemmens is damm smoking hot though and I would not have any problem if she were cast as anything.
But she's also latina though, which of course does not exactly fit the black bill.
Still throwing Jurnee Smollett out there and I don't care!
Maybe they just don't want a white person as Iris West and any other race will be fine. Lol.
A part of me chuckles at the fact on how the creators of "Arrow" have managed to do a lot of things that the creators of "Smallville" couldn't, with creating a spin-off from a Major DC character that was introduced on their first show being one of those things.
Honestly, I think what's really going to make or break this show, aside from everyone's acting skills, chemistry, and character dynamics, is how the costume looks and how well they pull off the speed effects.
I can't think of a good example where I've seen an iconic comic book hero's costumed adapted well on a TV Budget.
Using the expertise of an Oscar winning costume designer again would be a big help.
This is awesome.
Also, we need a Flash emoticon!!! (All speedsters would be great, but especially one for Barry!)
Danielle Panabaker has joined the cast as Killer Frost.
Jessica Lucas for Iris. Who's with me?
For anyone who isn't familiar with pilot shootings, that's a LONG time to be shooting a TV pilot. Even AOS only took about two weeks to shoot its pilot, and that costed around $13m.
Damn, maybe this is going to be a 2 hour pilot?
I like her and, in reality, she's not much older than some of the others suggested, but something about her just comes off as being older than she is.
If I see Gustin next to her, it's going to seem like he's trying to hook up with his babysitter.
Well, Barry is trying to hook up with his foster sister already. If you're being kinky, might as well go all the way.
So, assuming Wally is introduced at some point... How old would people want him to be? Gustin's pretty young, and I can't see them making Wally older than him...
Barry is what? 24? Wally would probably be around 16 - 18 if introduced within the first two seasons.
I'd go younger than that. Jesse L. Martin is 45.
I'd probably go with 14. Have him be at least 2 years on the show, then gain powers. Then make him part of the Young Justice Show.
He should be a high school kid around 14 - 16 years old.
