Arrow Casts Vinnie Jones as Brick

Vinnie Jones of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and X-Men: The Last Stand has joined the cast of Arrow as Danny Brickwell, better known as the DC supervillain Brick.

Variety describes the character as "a ruthless gang leader who brings Star City’s government to its knees. He’s known as 'Brick' on the streets because he’s been shot dozens of times but never put down."

They report that Jones will appear in episodes 10, 11 and 12 of Arrow’s third season, meaning that he'll feature in the midseason premiere and two episodes after.

Brick recently appeared in a DC Nation animated short featuring Green Arrow and has been a featured villain on Young Justice but this is his first live-action appearance.
