Vinnie Jones joins ‘Arrow’ season 3 as a villain named Brick

The CW’s Arrow added another villain as Variety reports that British actor Vinnie Jones will play the comicbook villain Danny “Brick” Brickwell in season three.

Arrow Mask -- exclusive EW.com image“Brick” is a Green Arrow villain with thick, invulnerable skin. In “Arrow,” Danny Brickwell is a ruthless gang leader who brings Star City’s government to its knees. He’s known as “Brick” on the streets because he’s been shot dozens of times but never put down. Jones will appear in episodes 10, 11 and 12 of “Arrow’s” current third season,” the Oct. 20 article details.

The CW show has added Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom and J.R. Ramirez as Ted Grant/Wildcat, so the franchise continues to grow. There is also “Spartacus alum Nick Tarabay as Captain Boomerang, Amy Gumenick as Cupid, David Cubitt as Mark “Manhunter” Shaw, and Matt Nable as Ra’s al Ghul, Variety summarized.

Brick has appeared on the animated series Young Justice in a short centering on Green Arrow. The article did note also that Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg “utilized the villain during his run writing the Green Arrow comics in the late aughts, and his name was previously teased on the show as a corrupt businessman on Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) list of targets.”

Jones is a regular on ABC’s Galavant, a musical comedy.

Season 3 has gotten off to an explosive start with the death of a main character and Amell speaking openly about the exciting third season. More on that coverage HERE

Arrow Season 3 airs Wednesdays at 8pm ET on CW.
