Russell Tovey is going to play gay superhero, the Ray! I’m trying not to geekgasm…or is it just regular orgasm in this case? Just reported by Comic Book Resources, the Ray will be played by Midshipman Alonso Frame, aka Jason from the movie the Pass, and also known as openly gay actor Russell Tovey. I am so excited over this!!! Did I mention that Tovey is one of my biggest, most undeniable crushes on the planet?
Russell Tovey will also voice the Ray in the animated series set to stream on the CW Seed. There is not a lot of info on the appearance in the Arrowverse yet, except that it will be a 4 part cross over with the Ray’s Earth, which is Earth X. It will also be taking place over two nights, starting with Monday, Nov. 27, with Supergirl and Arrow and then Tuesday, Nov. 28, with The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.
Have I mentioned that Tovey never seems to care about showing his ass on camera. A lot. He can’t possibly make me like him any more. I am very happy. What do you think?
