‘The Flash’ Casts Kelly Frye as Plastique

One: These hero/villain names never surprise me with how weird and hokey they can get (then again, these are some of the things I love about the genre).

Two: Between Arrow and The Flash, my f*cking head is going to explode reporting all of this trailer/casting news.

Geez, CW. Why won’t you let us zookeepers sleep? Stop being so awesome.

Back to the news at hand, Kelly Frye was recently added to the cast of The Flash as Bette Sans Souci (who is also known as Plastique). According to The Wrap and what role Bette will be playing on the upcoming show: “Bette was a bomb disposal expert in Iraq when the S.T.A.R. Labs meltdown surged through her and gave the ability to turn objects into explosives. Seen as a powerful war weapon, Bette is on the run from U.S. black ops when she finds an ally in The Flash (who is being played by Grant Gustin)” (The Wrap).

That definitely sounds like it is going to be a compelling story to see unfold.

As it regards comic book lore, Plastique has commonly been portrayed as a terrorist. She also is occasionally the love interest to Captain Atom…not to be confused with Brandon Routh’s The Atom (who will be seen on the upcoming season of Arrow).

Other than that, I look forward to seeing Frye in action alongside recently cast The Flash stars including Wentworth Miller (who will be playing Captain Cold) and Robbie Amell (who will be playing Firestorm).

How excited are you for The Flash? Let me know in the comments below!

The Flash will be premiering October 8 at 8/7 central.
