Arrow Adds Teen Wolf Alum Colton Haynes

Erstwhile Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes has landed a recurring role on Arrow.

The actor, who in early October hinted at his departure from the MTV hit, joins the CW drama as Roy Harper, a “handsome, street-savvy” teen who falls for Oliver’s little sister, TV Guide Magazine reports.

Fans of DC Comics will likely recall that Haynes’ soon-to-be alter ego has taken on many iterations since his 1941 inception, including Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy and the Justice League’s Red Arrow. Little is known, however, about how he’ll factor into Arrow‘s mythology, other than that he’s said to be a very “important player.”

Haynes — who played Kanima-turned-werewolf Jackson Whittemore during the first two seasons of Teen Wolf — is slated to make his Arrow debut in 2013.

    Good for Haynes; it’s definitely a step up from Teen Wolf. I bet Arrow captures more of a fan base by the end of its first season than Smallville did. Most of my friends that work with me at DISH like Arrow for its fast-paced scenes and the slew of characters that we’ve already seen. I’m saving this entire season to my DISH Hopper to relive the moments while I wait for the second season. It’s been nice to have a 2TB hard drive to keep my TV lineup in order. I don’t have to worry about making room for the second half of seasons like I did with my last DVR. Cheers to a good actor making it to a great show.
