Heroes Reborn actor Marco Grazzini has been cast to play the supervillain Tar Pit for CW's The Flash, according to ComicBook.
Originally introduced in 2001's The Flash #271, Tar Pit is the alias for Joe Monteleone, a small-time criminal who is related to a drug lord named Jack "The Candyman" Monteleone. In prison, the younger Monteleone discovered he was a metahuman with the ability to transfer his consciousness to inanimate objects -- such as a vat of hot tar.
According to ComicBook, Tar Pit's origin will be some what different with the character able to transform into "molten asphalt."
Next Tuesday's The Flash will be the last episode before a mid-season hiatus. The series will return in early 2016.
