As the Russian villain Kozar, Dolph Lundgren's demeanor may be pleasant, but as viewers -- and Oliver -- know, he's a genuinely dangerous adversary for the future Green Arrow.
“He’s very thoughtful and contemplates his lines and he has been great so far, but it’s a real change of pace,” Amell told CBR of Lundgren's addition to the "Arrow" cast. “I do think it would have been a missed opportunity in the last year of these flashbacks to not have a really worthy adversary. We found that in Dolph, which is why he’ll be around for a while. It’s been a blast to work with him. It’s been awesome.”
