We knew from an earlier casting call that The Flash season 4 was looking to add Ralph Dibny, aka The Elongated Man, to the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, and now EW has just confirmed that the super-stretchy hero will be played by Hartley Sawyer (Saving the Human Race, SPiN) as a new recurring character.
This version of Ralph Dibny will be private investigator, with “skills that rival those of Batman. Upon discovering he has the power to stretch his body to any shape or form, Dibny uses his new abilities to help Team Flash solve one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.” The Flash season 4 is shaping up to be an amazing ride already, with new comic book characters, costumes, and more all in the making.
A new casting sheet searching for three major recurring characters on the next season of The Flash has made its way online. While it confirms something we already knew, with Clifford DeVoe, AKA The Thinker, being the antagonist next season, it also confirms he has a right-hand woman, named The Mechanic. She’s responsible for creating his gadgets and ensuring his plans works.
However, the big surprise on the sheet is the addition of a new recurring guest star with an option for regular status: Ralph Dibny, AKA The Elongated Man! Ralph Dibny is famous for being one of the original stretchy heroes, who famously made his love-life work, until his wife was murdered at the beginning of Identity Crisis. Whether we see Sue Dibny this season, as well, is still a mystery. Hit the jump to check out the full casting sheets with character descriptions.
