Jesse L. Martin joins CW's 'The Flash'

Barry Allen, it’s time to meet your daddy! (Sort of.)

EW has confirmed that Jesse L. Martin has been cast in The CW’s upcoming show The Flash. Martin has been cast as Detective West, “an honest, blue-collar cop who is a surrogate father to Barry Allen (played by Grant Gustin).”

For those fans who met Allen during his stint on Arrow, they know that Allen’s birth father is currently in jail for the murder of his mother, but it’s a crime that’s never made sense to Allen. His plan to prove his father’s innocence will continue when The Flash premieres.
