British actor Vinnie Jones (Gone in 60 Seconds) has been cast as meta-human Danny Brickwell for the third season of Arrow.
In DC Comics canon, “Brick” is a Green Arrow villain with thick, invulnerable skin. In “Arrow,” Danny Brickwell is a ruthless gang leader who brings Star City’s government to its knees. He’s known as “Brick” on the streets because he’s been shot dozens of times but never put down. Jones will appear in episodes 10, 11 and 12 of Arrow’s current third season.
This will be the character's live-action debut, although he has appeared in the short-lived, much loved Young Justice animated series. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg utilized the villain during his run writing the Green Arrow comics, and his name was previously teased on the show.
Jones joins the long list of newly cast Arrow talent that also includes Brandon Routh, J.R. Ramirez, Nick Tarabay, David Cubitt and Matt Nagle.
