Watch: Grant Gustin Talks Landing The Flash Role


Check out a clip above featuring Grant Gustin talking about Season 1 of The Flash.

Gustin, when trying out for the part, said he realized he wasn’t Chris or Liam Hemsworth and was also aware of the look of the character in the comics.

Worth a mention is that Gustin reveals the character breakdown for The Flash in the series said Barry has blond hair.

With Gustin obviously landing the role, it seems the show’s producers decided to simply keep with the dark hair of Gustin.

“It wasn’t something like I was ‘oh, I’m going to book this,” Gustin said. “But it went my way.”

The Flash Season 2 returns Tuesday, October 6th to the CW.

A gag reel from The Flash Season 1 is also online.
