Matt Nable has been cast to play villain Ra's al Ghul in Season 3 of The CW's “Arrow,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
The iconic bad guy will first appear in fourth episode of the upcoming season, which is also show's 50th overall. In the DC Comics universe, al Ghul is the head of the League of Assassins and the father of Nyssa al Ghul, played by Katrina Law in several episodes of “Arrow.”
Nable's character will be recurring, which means fans might see him face off against Starling City's protector, Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), on multiple occasions.
OK, I figured Oded Fehr was a long shot, but I don't know this actor and he doesn't really look the part. He'll have to be amazing for me to get over my disappointment, we'll see soon enough in episode 4.
