Is someone in Starling City about to go headfirst into a wood chipper? Perhaps, as TVLIne reports that actor Peter Stormare has joined the cast of the CW's Arrow for the first episode of season 3.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Stormare, best known as the silent and homicidal villain from the Coen Brothers classic Fargo, will play Wener Zytle in the Arrow season 3 premiere. Zytle is the villainous new Count, taking over the sale of the illegal drug Vertigo following the death of Seth Gabel's Count in season 2.

Besides Fargo, Stormare also starred in the first two seasons of FOX's Prison Break.

In addition, Karl Yune has landed a major recurring role in Arrow's third season as Maseo Yamashiro. Maseo will be Oliver's mentor and trainer in the new Hong Kong flashbacks of season 3. He is the husband of Tatsu, who will be played by Devon Aoki.

Arrow season 3 premieres Wednesday, October 8 at 8pm on the CW.
