Demore Barnes Cast As "Flash's" Tokamak

A new report reveals that "The Flash" has started to round out its cast for season two. ComicBook.com has confirmed with the CW that Demore Barnes ("Hemlock Grove," "The Unit") will appear on the show as Henry Hewitt, a character better known to Firestorm fans as Tokamak.

The network describes Barnes' new role as "a charming, but cocky scientist who was affected by the same Particle Accelerator explosion that created the Flash. When Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) recruits him to join the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, Hewitt jumps at the opportunity to fulfill his destiny as a powerful meta-human."

Tokamak has only appeared in a handful of comics since his debut in 1983's "Firestorm" #15, but those appearances span decades. In the comics, Hewitt acted as the CEO of the Hewitt Corporation, a position he tried to use to conquer the United States' energy market.

From the description, it sounds like Barnes' Hewitt will be another one of the show's memorable rogue-of-the-weeks. Details about "Flash's" second season have begun trickling out, though, with a new photo dropping yesterday that teases a tense showdown in S.T.A.R. Labs.

"The Flash" returns to the CW on Tuesday, October 6.
