    Had a feeling this is what they were going to do. Good to see I got one prediction right.
    You don't have to break it to fix it.

    I was hoping he would play Jay Garrick, but at least they got him for something in the show.

    I hate the origin they're using, but it's cool he's on the show.

    I paused it on his face when the trailer was new, then compared it to his Wikipedia image
    For that I amused myself with the idea of the guy being my favorite one to be involved with the Flash

    Did you know he voiced Professor Zoom in Batman the Brave & the Bold animated series?
