Arrow has founds its ‘Brick.’
Professional soccer-player-turned actor Vinnie Jones has landed the role of Oliver Queen’s latest adversary and will play Danny ‘Brick’ Brickwell, a ruthless gang leader. The news was confirmed by TVLine.com who also reported that the television version of the character will differ from the DC Comics version. In the comics, Brick received his nickname because of his skin. On Arrow, it will be the result of him not succumbing to multiple gunshot wounds.
Jones has previously appeared on Elementary, The Musketeers and The Cape. His three-episode Arrow arc begins with Episode 10.
