Stephen Amell has been cast as the Green Arrow.

Amell, whose credits also include episodes of Private Practice and the CW’s The Vampire Diaries.

He will play the playboy, Oliver Queen – a 27 year old reformed bad boy, who after having spent five years shipwrecked on a tiny, brutally dangerous island in the South China Sea returns to town a different man. Or to be more specific, a tortured, thoughtful master of the bow with a ferocious determination to make a difference.

The  Green Arrow dates all the way back to 1941, when the charter first appeared in “More Fun Comics” #73.

Amell becomes the latest actor to play the part on the network, with Justin Hartley playing the character on the CW’s Smallville.

The CW ordered Arrow to pilot earlier this month. The retelling of the legendary comics character hails from Green Lantern duo Greg Berlantiand Marc Guggenheim, who will executive produce and pen the project alongside Fringe co-EP Andrew Kreisberg, with whom they worked on Eli Stone.
