    Well this makes sense. We already have Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost started out as a Firestorm villain.

    Ironically, Robbie' actually the person I thought who would be much better suited to being Barry Allen. He can play the 20-something-who-still-needs-to-grow-up. Yet still comes across like a young man imbued with testosterone. Anyway I'm glad to see that he's working.

    Wait, why is Ronnie Raymond a caucasian male?!

    Clearly a missed diversity opportunity...

    Last time I checked Jason Reuch is still black. And won't this be a moot point if the pairing for Firestorm is Ronnie and Jason?

    And thank you for the obligatory "diversity for the sake of diversity" post.

    It's going to be weird if he meets Ollie.

    Robbie and Brandon? Ugh too many good looking people.
    I really liked the other show he was on (The Tomorrow People) so it's really good to see him getting more work.
    Don't be evil like me.

    Sometimes using italics helps when being sarcastic. Anyway, good casting. Hopefully Ronnie gets to be the ass he sometimes was... and he was kind of Barry's protegè in the satellite era... or am I remembering wrong?

    That smilie got abused to the point where many were just glad to see it go, myself included. Thing got more use than [insert distasteful celebrity sex joke here].

    Never watched the Tomorrow People, how's this guy on that show?

    I've very glad for the addition of Robbie as well as Firestorm. This, after The Flash and The Atom stories, is great news to me. I feel Arrow is a bit slow with the entire cast being martial artists (with a bit of super strength being thrown in there.) We need super powers. The more the merrier I say. Great long video for The Flash series in there too.

    Welcome Flash, Atom and Firestorm to DC TV.

    The interesting part to me is that Robbie Amell is playing Snow's fiancee, aka the one who died in the particle accelerator accident. I can think of a few ways that could play into him being or becoming Firestorm, given the comicbooks history of the character, but its also an interesting connection to the likely future Killer Frost.
