DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow have cast Danish actor Casper Crump as the near-immortal, time-travelling Vandal Savage. He’s pretty much set on world domination, travelling through timestreams like his personal subway influencing political climates and leaders to his own ends. We think the key to immortality is his beard.
Crump’s version of Savage will first appear in the Arrow/Flash crossover episodes before continuing the role on the midseason spinoff of both, Legends of Tomorrow.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim, Legends Of Tomorrow stars The Flash’s Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein/one half of Firestorm). Also signed on are Arrow’s Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/the Atom, Caity Lotz as (Sara Lance/White Canary) as well as Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl), Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson) and the recently announced Falk Hentschel as Carter Hall/Hawkman.
Synopsis for Legends Of Tomorrow read:
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”).
