the flash greg finley girder casting star crossed dc Zap2it First: 'The Flash' casts 'Star Crossed's' Greg Finley as Girder

Zap2it has learned that “The Flash” has cast a former “Star-Crossed” alien — actor Greg Finley — to play the villainous Girder in two upcoming episodes of the show’s Season 1.

Finley’s role of Tony Woodward will appear in episodes 6 and 7 of “The Flash.” Thanks to the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion in the premiere episode of the series, Tony finds himself with the ability to transform his skin into living metal. In the guise of Girder, Tony then goes on a crime spree that only Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) may be able to stop.

The connection between the two men doesn’t stop there, however. Back when they were kids, Tony was the bully who used to torment Barry.

Most recently seen in “Star-Crossed” as the militant Atrian teen, Drake, Finley was also a regular on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and has appeared on “Law & Order: SVU,” “Emily Owens, MD” and “House.”

“The Flash” is set to premiere Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
