The CW’s The Flash announced that they have cast veteran actor Michael Ironside as Lewis Snart — the estranged, abusive father of villains Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Lisa Snart/Golden Glider (Peyton List).
Hollywood Reporter describes Papa Snart as a “cold-blooded, ruthless career criminal. Recently released from prison, he returns to Central City with a plan that will endanger both of his children. In the comics, not much is known about the Snart patriarch other than the fact that he was so abusive to his son — the future Captain Cold — that the boy spent more time with his grandfather who ran an ice truck.”
If you recognize Michael Ironside’s name, but can’t quit place him, he was in Top Gun, Starship Troopers and Total Recall. He was Lois Lane’s father in Smallville.
The Flash returns Oct. 6 on The CW at 7/8c p.m.
