Tom Felton, who played the venomous Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter universe, is set to feature on season 3 of superhero series The Flash as a regular cast member, TVLine reported on Thursday.

Felton will play Julian Dorn, a detective motivated by a strong suspicion against protagonist Barry Allen, in his second primetime television role. Felton starred on the first season of TNT’s anthology drama Murder in the First in 2014. 

Felton is known for playing Harry Potter's arch-nemesis Draco Malfoy throughout the eight Harry Potter movies, and he represents a big coup for the CW series as it heads into its third season. He makes his The Flash debut on Tuesday, October 5.
