London: Actor Doug Jones has joined the cast of 'Arrow'.

The 54-year-old actor will play DC villain Deathbolt in the CW show, reported Digital Spy.

Jones will appear in the 19th episode of the third season, 'Broken Arrow'.

While Deathbolt/Jake Simmons first appeared in DC comics in 1983 with the power to control electricity, the character will appear in Arrow as a metahuman with the ability to exploit plasma energy.

Jones has previously starred in 'Batman Returns', 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer', 'Pan's Labyrinth' and 'Hocus Pocus'.

'Arrow' boss Marc Guggenheim recently denied that John Diggle will become Green Lantern.

It was also recently revealed that 'The Flash' characters Joe West and Cisco will cross over into 'Arrow'.
