On the show, Jones will portray Danny Brickwell, a notorious gang leader who brings down the Starling City government. Unlike the impenetrable skin his comic book counterpart possesses, Jones’ character will be known as “Brick” on the show because he’s been shot multiple times and survived each attempt.

Jones will appear in episodes 10, 11 and 12 of the show’s current season.
