Back in December, we reported that The CW brought on Mark Hamill to guest star as James Jesse, a.k.a. The Trickster on The Flash, reprising the role he originated on the short-lived 1990 TV series. The actor was recently in Vancouver filming his guest-starring spot for the show's 17th episode, and we have the first photos of the actor in costume as The Trickster. The initial report also revealed that there will be another Trickster, played by Devon Graye, a young copycat who has taken over The Trickster, and we also have our first look at him in costume as well.
The episode, which does not have a title at this time, will also reunite Mark Hamill with John Wesley Shipp, who played The Flash in the original 1990 series and now plays the father of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) in The CW series. In the episode, Mark Hamill's James Jesse is serving a life sentence in Iron Heights, who helps both Barry and Detective West (Jesse L. Martin) track down the copycat. It's also worth noting that, in the DC Comics, The Trickster is part of the super-villain group known as The Rogues, whose members Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Weather Wizard (Liam McIntyre) and Pied Piper (Andy Mientus) have already been introduced on the show.
It isn't known if The Flash plans on bringing The Trickster back to join The Rogues later on this season, but it certainly seems like a possibility. The only question is, which Trickster will it be? Mark Hamill's James Jesse or the impostor played by Devon Graye? We'll keep you posted as soon as more details come in, but, for now, take a look at the set photos below. The Flash returns with "The Nuclear Man", airing Tuesday, February 10 at 8 PM ET on The CW.
