THE FLASH Casts Actors For Jay Garrick and Patty Spivot

THE FLASH will add two new major players to Season 2, Jay Garrick and Patty Spivot!

The Flash will go retro and bring in a new love interest in its next season, adding in both the original metahuman speedster Jay Garrick and Barry Allen’s sometimes-girlfriend in the comics, Patty Spivot.

First off, The original “Flash” is coming to the show! Jay Garrick, the first comic character to go by the superhero moniker, will be portrayed by American Horror Story and Masters of Sex actor Teddy Sears. It’s hard to tell just how involved he’ll be in the new season, but Jay Garrick will be “a mysterious figure who arrives in Central City to warn Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and his team at S.T.A.R. Labs of an impending danger that he alone cannot hope to stop.” We imagine that the fallout from that “impending danger” will be mind-blowing!

We previously discussed the “Felicity Smoak-like” character advertised for the show being Patty Spivot after audition reels for the show leaked. Now, the role has gone to Shantel VanSanten from The Messengers and One Tree Hill. The character is Joe West’s new partner following Eddie’s tragic death. She is described as “a police officer and science enthusiast who catches the eye of Barry Allen.”

In case you’re not feeling the love for the show yet, check out the Season 1 highlight reel from Comic-Con!
