The CW’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Casts Casper Crump as DC Villain Vandal Savage

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” has found its Vandal Savage in Danish actor Casper Crump, who will make his debut as the iconic comicbook villain in crossover episodes of “Arrow” and “The Flash” before continuing the recurring role on the CW’s super-powered spinoff at midseason.

Vandal Savage is immortal, having spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world.

He joins newly announced cast member Falk Hentschel, who will play Carter Hall/Hawkman in the spinoff series, along with previously confirmed stars Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein/Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Ciara Renée (Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders), Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson) and Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter).

“Legends” producer Greg Berlanti previously told Variety that the spinoff’s villain would be a “big character who hasn’t been used yet” on any of the producer’s CW’s superhero shows, and that their priority was on “making sure that the villain we have on that show is distinct” after utilizing some of DC Comics’ most memorable bad guys for “Arrow” and “The Flash.”

Hailing from Denmark, Crump previously appeared in the original Danish version of “The Killing,” known as “Forbrydelsen,” and will next be seen in David Yates’ “Tarzan” adaptation alongside Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie.

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” originates from Berlanti Productions, Bonanza Prods. and Warner Bros. TV with Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter exec producing.
