According to TV Insider, Pope will play Coast City reporter Susan Williams -- in the comics, the wife of Hal's brother, Jim -- who comes to Star City "looking to make a name for herself" by going after Oliver Queen for a "big story."

Williams will make her debut in the third episode of "Arrow's" fifth season.

Also joining the cast of "Arrow" is Tyler Ritter ("The McCarthys") in a recurring role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ritter is playing Detective Malone, a replacement for Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne) on the Star City Police Department, for the upcoming fifth season. Blackthorne will continue to appear on the series as a regular, despite not operating on the police force.

The fifth season of "Arrow" has seen a lot of additions as of late, including Josh Segarra ("Chicago P.D.") as a new district attorney, who in the comics is the hero Vigilante, Rick Gonzalez as the anti-hero Wild Dog and Chad Coleman ("The Walking Dead") as a new gangster character named Tobias Church.
