As news surfaced that Wentworth Miller has been added to the cast of The Flash, more information on Firestorm has been released!
[…] As for Robbie Amell coming on board as Ronnie Raymond — one half of DC Comics character Firestorm — reporters were quick to wonder whether Firestorm’s other half, Martin Stein, will also be making an appearance. Berlanti revealed that Stein was initially in the pilot, but was eventually written out. That said, we will meet Stein as Amell’s character evolves.
Barry’s suit was also a point of contention, as it’s not quite as vibrant as in the comics. Berlanti noted that designer Colleen Atwood went through a series of different looks and that the team will be “evolving the suit over time. … It will become more vibrant and red” as the series progresses.

TV Guide reports that Robbie Amell has joined the cast of “The Flash” in the role of Ronnie Raymond — better known to DC Comics fans as one-half of the hero known as Firestorm. Reportedly, “The Flash” version of the character is a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and fiancé to Dr. Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker). Amell will appear as Ronnie Raymond in the third episode of “The Flash.” In the comics, Caitlin Snow is better known as the villainous Killer Frost, one of Firestorm’s most dangerous rogues who has the ability to freeze anything — and the unfortunate curse of only being able to temporarily warm herself by absorbing the heat from living beings.
An alum of “The Tomorrow People,” Robbie Amell is the real-life cousin of “Arrow” star Stephen Amell, and has had roles in “Revenge,” the short-lived NBC sitcom “1600 Penn.” He is currently shooting the indie film, “Max.”
“Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg and myself designed the pilot and series to include Ronnie (aka Firestorm) — and to actually have someone with Robbie’s talent playing the role is beyond exciting,” executive producer Greg Berlanti said in a statement. “We can’t wait for viewers and fans of the character to check it out.”
“I’m so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on ‘The Flash,'” Amell said. “Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can’t wait to get started!”
“The Flash” debuts this Fall on the CW.

I thought it was about time for a change, so I’ve put up a brand new layout! If you haven’t noticed, I will be using robbie-amell.com from now on, but will also still be using robbieamellfan.com until it expires, so if you’re an affiliate, be sure to change links! I will also be revamping the content pages a little bit, so if you see some changes, you’ll know why! As always, feedback is always appreciated!
I’ve finally got the gallery updated with the last episodes of The Tomorrow People along with an episode still and captures from Robbie’s appearance on Whose Line Is It Anyway? last week. Enjoy!
