‘Arrow’ season 4 adds Jeri Ryan, JR Bourne, Jimmy Akingbola in ‘villain’ roles

Star Trek: Voyager actress Jeri Ryan is joining the season four of the CW TV series Arrow in a spree of villain casting. Teen Wolf star JR Bourne and Jimmy Akingbola have also joined the growing gallery of bad guys for Team Arrow.

Ryan, 47, will guest star in the second episode of the new season as Queen family friend Jessica Danforth, Access Hollywood reported. Jessica will come across a menacing antagonist after her political ambitions lead her astray.

Bourne is signed for one episode as DC comic book villain Double Down with Akingbola’s Baron Reiter, aka Baron Blitzkrieg, seen in Oliver Queen flashbacks. Blitzkrieg leads the group Shadowspire in the comic book and is a “grizzled, hardened and commanding man, who has no conscience and few compunctions, offers Oliver a job in his underground organization.”

Double Down, aka Jeremy Tell, is a con artist and compulsive gambler, created in the comic books by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, appearing first in The Flash comics back in 2001.

Arrow season 4 will introduce Echo Kellum as Mister Terrific and Alexander Calvert as Anarky. Fans can expect Willa Holland’s Thea to fully become Speedy in season 4.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim has said the show would deal with the ramifications of Thea’s season three revival via the Lazarus Pit.

 Arrow returns to The CW from October 7.
