HUNG and VAMPIRE DIARIES Star Stephen Amell is The CW’s ARROW

     January 31, 2012

After learning that The CW was replacing its superhero void left by the end of Smallville with Arrow, based on the DC Comics hero Green Arrow, we were left to wonder who would play the superhero. Well, wonder no more as THR has learned that Stephen Amell has been cast as the titular character. The series follows Amell as a playboy by day who becomes the Green Arrow at night who fights crime in the city with a special bow and arrow. Currently the series is ordered to pilot with Green Lantern duo Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim executive producing and writing the project, so hopefully it will actually make it to air. With Hung canceled, Amell’s schedule was left free and clear for what promises to be quite the opportunity, the same kind that turned Tom Welling into a star after playing Clark Kent on Smallville.
