If casting reports are any indication, "The Flash's" sixteenth episode is going to be a family affair. Coming hot on the heels of Peyton List's casting as Captain Cold's younger sister, TV Line reports that "Sleepy Hollow" alum Nicholas Gonzalez has joined the CW drama as Dante, Cisco Ramon's (Carlos Valdes) older brother. TV Line describes the character as "handsome and charming," a gifted pianist, and the family's favorite -- though he resents Cisco's success.
Dante is a relatively new character in DC Comics lore, first appearing in 2013's "Justice League of America's Vibe" #1. In the comics, Dante was brother both to Cisco and Armando. The character was created by DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, artist Pete Woods and "The Flash" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
While most will likely know Gonzalez from his "Sleepy Hollow" appearance as Detective Luke Morales, he's also appeared on CW series "Jane the Virgin" with guest appearances on "BoJack Horseman," "Resurrection" and "Witches of East End." He will first appear as Dante Ramon in the sixteenth episode of "The Flash."
"The Flash" returns January 20 on The CW.
