Looks like "The Flash" is getting a powerful new character to join as a series regular. "Harry Potter" vet Tom Felton, who plays antagonist Draco Malfoy in the franchise, has been confirmed to join the third season of "The Flash," reported TV Line

Felton's role has been revealed and the actor will join The CW superhero series as a Central City Police Department crime scene investigator named Julian Dorn. His character is described to suspect there is more to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) than just his good guy reputation.

Felton's character sounds a lot like the mysterious series regular "The Flash" producers were seeking months ago. According to TV Line, the recurring character is expected to be an inquisitive contemporary to Barry, who is "as smart as he is intuitive." The problem with this characters curiosity, however, is that he does not take anything at face value.

The site further shared that the character is hiding a secret of his own, while he takes it upon himself to discover what makes Barry tick.

Meanwhile, series star Gustin took to Twitter to reveal that the series will indeed play the Flashpoint" storyline at the start of Season 3. Gustin teased, "We're definitely doing this FP [Flashpoint] thing our own way... This will be its own thing." Check out Gustin's tweets below:

The CW's "The Flash" stars Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Tom Cavanagh as Dr. Harrison Wells and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West. Season 2 of the series also introduced Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West and the Earth-2 version of The Flash played by John Wesley Shipp, who also played Barry’s father, Henry Allen.

"The Flash" will premiere this fall on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
