The CW is adding to the cast of Arrow.
Veteran character actor Neil McDonough has boarded the DC Comics drama as a regular, TVWise has learned. He will play well known villain Damien Darhk in the show’s fourth season, which is set to premiere on The CW on Wednesday October 7th.
Damien Darhk is described as “a mysterious and sophisticated villain” who was once an adversary of the late Ra’s Al Ghul. Now the leader of his own clandestine group, this cunning foe will prove to be one of the Arrow’s greatest challenges.
McDonough, repped by Paradigm, has a long list of TV credits which includes JAG, NYPD Blue, Murder One, Band Of Brothers and The X-Files. More recently, he had a season-long arc on FX’s Justified and key roles on TNT’s Mob City and USA Network’s Suits. McDonough also recently wrapped a recurring role on TNT’s Public Morals, which premieres on August 25th.
