“Heroes Reborn” actor Marco Grazzini will join the spring season of “The Flash” as an asphalt-transforming metahuman named Tar Pit.
In the comics, Tar Pit is an astral projecting villain who can turn himself into asphalt and flames. In the show his character name will be Joey Montelone, who will try to gain a tactical advantage over Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin). Tar Pit will be terrorizing The Flash and Central City in the latter half of the season, according to Comicbook.com.
Marco Grazzini joins a long list of famous guest actors who have taken on metahuman identities on “The Flash”, including “Prison Break's” Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold and Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave, “Star-Crossed's” Greg Finley as Girder, and “Smash's” Andy Mientus as Pied Piper.
“The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8/9C on The CW.
