The CW’s Arrow – returning for its second season tomorrow night, October 9th at 8pm – has already sought out two former Doctor Who stars for its cast: John Barrowman as first season baddie, Malcom Merlyn, and Alex Kingston as Laurel Lance’s mama, Dinah. But there’s one actor series producer, Andrew Kreisberg is simply dying to work with: The Doctor himself, Matt Smith.
Recently Arrow star, Stephen Amell, was promoting the second season as well as the first season’s release on DVD/Blu-ray, and told SciFiNow what a diehard Whovian Kriesberg really is,
Andrew is such a Whovian, so if you were to say to him right now, ‘Number one guest star actor/actress, who would it be?’ Clearly it would be Matt Smith.
I can tell you that if there was even the faintest chance that he is available, he would be hired immediately. They would probably hire him to take my job, they love Doctor Who so much.
Matt, are you listening? I know you’re in talks to star in a musical version of American Psycho, but if you’re looking for a little American television work, I believe you’ve got a standing invitation to join Arrow.
Who do you think Smith should play in the Arrow-verse? Hero or villain?
