Ernie Hudson Takes Arrow Guest Role

by Erik Amaya


We’ll avoid the obvious Ghostbusters puns.

Deadline reports Ernie Hudson will guest star in the 19th episode of Arrow‘s 7th season. In it, he will play a 4-star general at the Defense Intelligence Agency (a real-life agency, BTW) John Diggle (David Ramsey) reconnects with on behalf of the team. Their past is reportedly rocky, but Dig is always willing to do uncomfortable things for the good of the mission and Team Arrow.

Of course, we’re wondering what sorted aspect of John’s past will involve the general and whether or not he’s been compromised by Dante (Adrian Paul). Then again, we should probably assume any new characters introduced in the present day story are Dante’s assets. The situation made life difficult for John at A.R.G.U.S., leading to a fateful choice this week.

Come to think of it, John’s plot with Dante has been a slow boil all year. It’s nice to finally see it come together with a great guest actor as the villain.

Arrow airs Mondays on The CW.
