Shipp returns for The Flash!


John Wesley Shipp, who played ‘The Flash’ in the ’90s series, will play an as-yet undisclosed role in The CW’s reboot.

Deadline says that while the network is happy to report the signing of Shipp (also known for his role as the family patriarch on “Dawson’s Creek”), they’re not ready to report who he’s playing yet.

Don’t think you need to be a genius to work that one though.

Here’s some of Shipp, as Barry Allen, on CBS’s “The Flash” which ran from ’90 to ’91.
