Harry Potter Alum Tom Felton Joins The Cast of The Flash

Harry Potter alum Tom Felton, best known for playing the Slytherin bully Draco Malfoy in all of the Potter films thus far, has joined the cast of The CW's The Flash as a series regular, TV Line reports.

Felton will play Julian Dorn, a Central City Police Department crime scene investigator who "suspects there's more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation."

Since Harry Potter, the 28-year-old English actor appeared in various TV shows including Neil LaBute's DirecTV miniseries Full Circle and TNT's Murder in the First. Felton is expected to make his Flash debut in the series' third season.

As for series itself, star Grant Gustin took to Twitter to reveal the upcoming Flash Season 3 premiere is titled "Flashpoint," which led many to speculate that the third season would be an adaptation of the famed DC Comics storyline of the same title.

In the comics, Flashpoint follows Barry as he journeys aroudn the world after waking up in a new timeline where his mother is alive, his father is dead and The Flash doesn't exist. Events for something along these lines were removed from end of last season after Barry went back in time to save his mother before she was murdered by future nemesis Eobard Thawne.

The Flash returns for Season 3 on October 4.
