A Prison Break reunion in the tenth episode...
Dominic Purcell is joining his former Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller as part of a villainous duo in The Flash. THR reports that Purcell will play Heat Wave, who teams up with Miller's Captain Cold in the tenth episode of the season.
Heat Wave, real name Mick Rory, first appeared in 1963's The Flash #140. He was initially a nonpowered man with a flamethrower but was reinvented in the New 52 universe as a pyrokinetic. Whether Purcell will be the powered or non-powered version isn't yet known.
The show, which stars Grant Gustin as the titular hero, premieres on October 7th on The CW.
