Currie Graham (NYPD Blue, Boston Legal) has landed the lead role of the gang as he will be playing King. His nemesis Derek Reston, will also make an appearance and is set to be played by Kyle Schmid (Copper).
The Royal Flush Gang will make there first appearance in the sixth episode, in which executive producer Andrew Kreisberg called “one of the most successful attempts at alchemy that we’ve performed. … The Royal Flush Gang was the most outlandish villains from the comics, but they turned out to be our most grounded villains. The relationship that Oliver has with King, the leader of the gang, we’re really proud of it.”
Kreisberg also further revealed more spoilers on ‘The Royal Flush Gang’, in that “the dynamic of the family and the iconography of the playing cards are going to be there without the supernatural bent,” he said. “I think we’ve come up with a really clever way to portray them.”
