From piledriving people into folding tables for actual good to piledriving people into folding tables for pretend evil, Stephen Amell’s new creative endevour is still going to give you the fight scenes you deserve. According to Deadline, the Arrow actor will star in Heels, the wrestling drama series just picked up for an eight-episode order by Starz. The show follows two brothers enmeshed in a indie wrestling scene of small-town Georgia. Amell’s Jack Spade is, you guessed it, “the charismatic villain” of the pair, or heel. The series will be showrun by Mike O’Malley, creator of Survivor’s Remorse, meaning it’s probably more like he’ll be piledriving people into a folding table for personally and emotionally complicated reasons.
