Stephen Amell to star in ‘Heel’

The Arrow star will next headline a new Starz series called Heels, about small town pro wrestling. The official description reads as follows:

“Set in a close-knit Georgia community, Heels follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to – or hard to leave behind.”

Amell will play Jack whose described as “the charismatic villain – or heel – of the Duffy Wrestling Association” with “the mind of an artist in the body of a warrior, and a Steve Jobs-ian need for perfection – and control.”

In August 2015, the actor faced off against Cody Rhodes – who played Sampson on Arrow – at WWE’s Summerslam. He went on to compete in a few more singles matches, before implying last year on Facebook Live that those days were possibly behind him.

Arrow debuts first frailer for 8th and Final Season at Comic-Con

Oliver Queen visits some literal ghosts from his past in the trailer for Arrow‘s eighth and final season.

The first-look footage from Comic-Con International begins ominously with a flashback to The Monitor sharing the prophecy of Ollie’s death – along with a flash to the 2019 date on the Green Arrow’s tombstone.

After a look back at his many heroic fights, there are highlights from seemingly otherworldly adventures to come this season as Oliver once again faces off with long-gone faces from his past like Tommy Merlyn, Deathstroke and Prometheus.

In the end, Oliver admits: “There’s just one more thing I got to do.”

The final season of Arrow premieres Tuesday, October 15 on The CW. Stream free next day only on The CW App! #CWSDCC

Stephen Amell is dreading the eighth and final season of Arrow, though you wouldn’t know it on this hot, sunny July day in Los Angeles. Wearing Green Arrow’s new suit, the CW star seems perfectly at ease as he strikes heroic pose after heroic pose on a dimly lit stage. But once he’s traded heavy verdant leather for a T-shirt, jeans, and baseball cap, his guard drops and the vulnerability starts to creep in as he contemplates Arrow’s last 10 episodes, which was set to begin production in Vancouver a week after the EW photoshoot took place and premieres Oct. 15.

“I’m very emotional and melancholy, but it’s time,” Amell — who is featured on the new cover of Entertainment Weekly — says as he takes a sip from a pint of Guinness. “I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year. The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening.”
