Two casting announcements for “Arrow” season five two days in a row, how cool is that?! Deadline is reporting today that actor Josh Segarra (Trainwreck) has been cast as a series regular in the role of DC comics character Adrian Chase.
In the comics, Adrian Chase is the hero known as the Vigilante, and as Deadline brings out in their article, has strong ties to Deathstroke. But for “Arrow,” it’s being reported that Adrian Chase will be Star City’s new district attorney, and an ally to Oliver as the new mayor, and wants to clean up Star City through the legal system.
It sounds like this take on Adrian Chase will be a bit different from his comic counterpart, but with the news yesterday of Wild Dog being brought into the series, you can’t help but speculate if both characters will have a story connection over the course of the season, given their comic history of being vigilantes.
Stay tuned for more news regarding season five in the coming months.
