It’s a rare privilege to appear in not one but two franchises that inspire aggressively erotic fanfiction, but Tom Felton is no ordinary actor. The erstwhile Draco Malfoy has signed on as a series regular for the third season of the CW’s super-soap The Flash, appearing as a CSI named Julian Dorn. That makes him a co-worker of Barry Allen, alter ego of the Fastest Man Alive (though have you noticed that, each season, the villain has been explicitly acknowledged as being faster?). Unlike much of the show’s dramatis personae, the role is not (as far as we can tell) based on an existing DC Comics character. He, like Felton’s beautiful and oh-so-punchable face, is one of a kind.
