From E!: "Once the design was finished, we shared it with Stephen and Stephen had a really great suggestion," executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells E! News. "He's like, 'I'm probably going to regret saying this when the winter comes, but what about making it sleeveless like the comics?' And I'll be honest, I was skeptical. I wasn't sure. It looks good in the comics, but I wasn't sure how it was going to look on Stephen. But man, it's amazing!"

Is Jay Jackson the New Other Half of Firestorm??
From Comicbook.com tries to solve a mystery:
-Franz Drameh joined LoT cast in April without a clue as to who he'd play.
-Drameh is playing Jay Jackson, a former high school athlete, whose pro-career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meets as an auto mechanic, Jay will come to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew.
-Probably replacing Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) as Professor Martin Stein's other half of the Firestorm matrix.
-Exec Prod. Phil Klemmer pm confirmed it by saying JJ is "probably the last person Professor Stein (Victor Garber) wants to share Firestorm with." (Hmmmm....)
