Well, that didn’t take long? After only appearing in a few episodes, Colton Haynes is receiving a promotion. Whatever he’s doing on set has certainly impressed the powers-that-be at The CW. Congratulations to him (and to me). This just increases my chances of bumping into him since Arrow films in Vancouver. I’ve been a fan of his since he starred in ABC’s short-lived vampire show, The Gates.
Haynes first appeared as Roy Harper in the episode “Dodger.” The 24-year-old actor will be a series regular for the second season of Arrow. He’s the latest to get upgraded on the CW show. Emily Bett Rickards who plays the fabulous Felicity Smoak also moved up from recurring character to full-fledged cast member recently.
You’d think scoring a regular gig after leaving MTV’s Teen Wolf would make him happy. Rather, he’s worried about one aspect about his promotion. He jokingly told US Weekly the following.
“I’m excited to be joining the Arrow team but not excited to be training in the gym to keep up with Stephen [Amell]” – Colton Haynes
I don’t blame him. That Stephen Amell is sex on wheels. The guy is the very definition of cut. I’ve seen him a handful of times and trust me… what you see on television is the real thing. No special effects. With Colton staying put in YVR, hopefully he’ll follow Amell to the gym. Would love to see him working on his fitness. Don’t worry, I’m not a stalker. I admire from afar as I’m benching 10lbs with my trainer ;) LOL. If you’re not familiar with the hotness that is Colton Haynes, check out a few photos below.
Are you excited that Colton Haynes will be appearing more in Season 2? Do you prefer him on Arrow or on Teen Wolf? Will he become Oliver Queen’s sidekick or simply be relegated as Thea’s (Willa Holland) love interest? Sound off below.
