Entertainment Weekly has learned that TRON: Legacy actor Matt Ward has joined the cast of Arrow's third season as Simon Lacroix, known to Green Arrow fans as villainous archer Komodo.
Within the pages of The New 52, Simon Lacroix is an archer and adversary of Green Arrow, a deadly mercenary who wrecks havoc wherever he goes.
While he will start out as the villain of the week, Komodo will be more closely connected to the third season's overreaching story. “Yes, he’s the villain-of-the-week for the second week of the show, but you’ll see that Team Arrow’s pursuit of him is part and parcel of a season-long storyline,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “You’re going to know what happens to Komodo at the end of the episode, but it will be a little bit tied in better with the season-long mythology than villain-of-the-week episodes have done in the past.”
[Arrow](series:720988) returns for its third season on October 8th at 8:00 PM ET on The CW.
