Star Wars Battlefront II Featuring CW TV Show Arrow Actor, Paul Blackthorne
Arrow actor Paul Blackthorne will be featured in Star Wars Battlefront II single-player campaign. A Star Wars fan spotted him on Twitter in a recent making of video, and he confirmed pretty quickly that he'll be a playable character after all. "Yes indeed - in those snug little suits...," he told the fan with a tweet.
"The process is so sophisticated now that for good or for worse, Hask will look like me," he also added. Interestingly, Blackthorne, who plays Quentin Lance in the Arrow CW TV show, is working for the third time with his colleague actress Janina Gavankar, who plays Battlefront II protagonist Iden Versio.
Gavankar has been on four episodes of Arrow and they both were in the 2010 supernatural crime drama, The Gates. The story mode is being written by Mitch Dyer, who previously worked at IGN, and Walt Williams, the guy who worked at the script for one of the most appreciated story-drive shooter in the last few years, Spec Ops: The Line.
