KSiteTV is reporting Tuesday that The CW has cast the part of Jason Rusch for the upcoming 10th episode of The Flash.
Luc Roderique, who also appears in the CW’s iZombie pilot, will play Rusch.
The character was created in 2014 by DC Comics as the then new host of the Firestorm matrix after the death of original Firestorm Ronnie Raymond. In the current rebooted New 52 continuity Rusch shares the Firestorm identity with Raymond.
Victor Garber was previously cast in The Flash as Firestorm creator Martin Stein, and Robbie Amell was cast as Raymond.
This is what KSiteTV calls the official character description of Rusch:
”A graduate student at Hudson University, he was part of Martin Stein's research team on the F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. project. In the DC comics, Jason takes over the Firestorm matrix after Ronnie Raymond's death.”
KSiteTV doesn't clarify what roles all three characters will play on the TV show, though it now seems likely Rusch and Raymond will share the Firestorm identity and Stein will serve as its creator, ala current DC continuity.
