Arrow Executive Producer Talks About the Search for Barry Allen

This Wednesday will see the series debut of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, AKA The Flash, on The CW’s hit series “Arrow.” The CW has released this video featuring an interview with Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg discussing the casting search for Barry Allen as well as some new footage from the character’s debut episode. Titled “The Scientist,” the episode is described as follows:

“A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town.  Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver and team with the investigation.  Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he’s distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island.  Meanwhile, Felicity takes a liking to Barry, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Oliver.  Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy for help when a friend of hers goes missing.  Roy is surprised when Thea not only encourages him to help, but joins the search.  Unfortunately, Sin’s friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured.”
