CW Casting Roundup: Arrow Gains Ben Browder, The Vampire Diaries Gets New Character
The Vampire Diaries is set to introduce a new recurring character by the name of Vaughn. Vaughn is set to make an appearance in episode thirteen of the current series, and reappear in episodes fourteen and fifteen as part of a continuing story arc.
Meanwhile Stargate: SG-1 and Farscape star Ben Browder is Arrow bound. Browder is set to take on the role of Ted Gaynor, John Diggle’s commanding officer from his first tour in Afghanistan. Like Diggle, Gaynor now also works as a bodyguard, but for Blackhawk Squad Protection Group in Starling City.
Browder’s Gaynor makes his appearance in episode eleven, entitled ‘Trust But Verify’ which is set to air in 2013. The episode will see Gaynor proving to be a polarizing figure between Oliver (Amell) and Diggle (John Ramsay) when a series of armored truck robberies strike the city.
