In this iteration of the character, he doesn't go by that name but rather runs drugs--including a disorienting drug with the "Vertigo" street name. Portrayed by Seth Gabel from Fringe, the character has a closer connection with Oliver than with Green Arrow, as his sister has found herself in trouble with the drug.
That's right--folks. Speedy is a junkie. Get your yuks in now.
"The Count is a trickster, and he comes from the street. Most of the people on Oliver's list are white-collar villains … but The Count is unique in that he relishes the opportunity to prove his own dominance over any force in Starling City and as a force of the street," Gabel told The Hollywood Reporter. "He feels like he can take on anything, including the Arrow."
Arrow airs tonight at 8 p.m. EST on The CW. Check out the clip below.
