Vinnie Jones is set to join Arrow, the CW series adaptation of the DC Comics character.
THR confirms that Jones, best known for his roles in Snatch, Mean Machine, and The Midnight Meat Train, will be playing DC Comics villain Danny “Brick” Brickwell.
Don’t expect Jones to be taking on a long stint though; he’ll be playing the role in three episodes, starting in the third season’s tenth episode.
The character of Brick was created by Judd Winick and Phil Hester, and first appeared in Green Arrow vol.3, #40. This will be the first time the character, a metahuman with a reddish, stony skin that grants him invulnerability and super-strength, is featured in a live-action adaptation.
Jones has previously played a Marvel comics villain, with Cain Marko, aka Juggernaut, in Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand.
