Jeremy Davies joins Arrowverse crossover as Arkham’s Dr. Deegan


The CW’s three-show Arrowverse crossover event has added another star. Emmy-winner Jeremy Davies will play Arkham Asylum’s Dr. Deegan.

Has The CW’s fifth annual Arrowverse crossover found its villain? While plot details remain scarce, Jeremy Davies has been cast in the Gotham-centric event as John Deegan, a doctor at the infamous Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane who’s up to no good.

According to DC Entertainment’s press release, Deegan “might just be crazier than the inmates he treats. His machinations will draw Green Arrow [Stephen Amell], the Flash [Grant Gustin] and Supergirl [Melissa Benoist] to Gotham City.”

Davies is best known for playing Daniel Faraday on ABC’s Lost and Dickie Bennett on FX’s Justified. The latter role earned him two Emmy nominations and one win for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series in 2012.
