It looks like CW is pulling a trick when it comes to depicting the Trickster in The Flash television series. ComicBook.com reports that the freshman show has cast Dexter star Devon Graye to play a second Trickster, real name Axel, in the season's upcoming seventeenth episode.
Just a few weeks ago Star Wars' Mark Hamill was announced to play the Trickster, aka James Jesse, in that very same episode of The Flash. Here's how CW described this episode when Hamill's casting was announced:
In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights who helps Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil the city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original's deadly footsteps.
