Gabel Joins “Arrow”

While actor Seth Gabel is no longer a regular on Fringe, that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing him again in another genre series.

Gabel has signed on for a guest role on the CW’s hit series Arrow.  Gabel will reportedly play Arrow’s nemesis Vertigo later this season.

However, the character won’t go by his comic book moniker. That will actually be the street name for a new drug that’s being smuggled into the city. Also, his aesthetic is totally different. He’s not a count, but a “truly scary and nightmarish” adversary. He’ll be one of Oliver’s deadliest rivals to date.

    I’m truly happy that Seth is getting a chance to appear on this show. You can tell a show’s popularity by the guests who appear on it, and just coming off of a successful run on Fringe I find it very positive that Seth will add his talents to the series.

    What I’m uncertain about is the whole “Vertigo” thing. I don’t mind when TV shows veer off from their source material, but sometimes when they go too far it can lead to jumping the shark, and that’s not something I want to see happen here. I only hope it’s presented in a way that doesn’t alienate the comic book fanbase too much!
