The actor will play a very important role on the DC-based series

After some inferences to the character, The CW’s “Arrow” is finally bringing on Manhunter.

David Cubitt has signed on for the important role, a show representative told TheWrap.

Cubitt will play Mark Shaw, an A.R.G.U.S. operative in Corto Maltese who crosses paths with Diggle (David Ramsey). He will later become Manhunter, just one of the people who assume the name from the DC Comics. Originally a race of criminal-seeking robots that became out of control, Manhunters were later destroyed by their leaders and replaced with humans with a mind toward serving justice.

On NBC’s “Medium,” Cubitt played Detective Lee Scanlon for the show’s seven season run. He recently appeared on A&E’s “Bates Motel.”

The actor joins a growing list of new additions to Season 3, including Brandon Routh, J.R. Ramirez, Charlotte Ross, Karl Yune, Devon Aoki and Peter Stormare.
