We know that Ollie Queen is going to have a lot of new villains to contend with when Arrow returns to the CW for its fourth season, but will whoever former True Blood alum Rutina Wesley ends up playing be another foe, or a much-needed ally? We’ll probably have to wait a while to find out, because though The Wrap reports that the actress is in talks to join the cast of the superhero show for a multi-episode arc, they don’t reveal the name of her character.
Wesley is best known for playing Tara Thornton on HBO’s vampire drama series True Blood, and can currently be seen as blind film processor Reba McClane on NBC’s Hannibal. She’s not a huge star just yet, but she’s done some solid work in the past and we’re certainly excited to see what she’ll bring to Arrow.
Other notable new recruits this season include Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt/Mr. Terrific, and Neal McDonough as the latest big bad, Damien Darhk. They join regular stars Stephen Amell, Willa Holland, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards and John Barrowman.
Arrow season 4 premieres on October 7th at 8PM on The CW.
