Mark Hamill back as Trickster on CW’s The Flash

 I yi yi…my 90’s head is spinning. Now Ship, Amanda Pays AND Hamill are all on the new Flash show.

“Mark Hamill returns in a brand new interpretation of James Jesse (aka The Trickster), a role he originated on the 90’s ‘Flash’ series,” reads the description. “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. The episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp who went up against him as the original ‘Flash’ on the CBS version.”

This is cool but it just hits it on the head once again that they should have had Shipp play an older Barry Allen and have Grant Gustin be the young, brash Wally West, his mentee. Don’t get me wrong; Gustin is killing it as the straight-laced Allen but if we’re just going to absorb the old show…
