‘Arrow’ Sneak Peek: ‘Fringe’ Alum Seth Gabel Suits Up As The Count

On January 30th, Oliver is going to meet his latest foe.

Former Fringe star Seth Gabel is furthering his geek credentials by suiting up as The Count, one of Arrow‘s numerous nemeses. Courtesy of TV Guide we have our first look at Gabel in full villain garb. Check out the photos in the gallery below. What do you think of his subdued look?

The Count is based on the DC Comics’ villain Count Vertigo, but his Arrow counterpart has been given a realistic edge to match the series’ tone. In his original form, Count Vertigo could distort his victims’ perceptions through an electronic device, but Arrow‘s Count will take a more straightforward approach by introducing a new drug dubbed “Vertigo” to the streets of Starling City.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
