Glee's Grant Gustin Cast As The Flash

This weekend's big news was 'Glee' Actor Grant Gustin Cast As Barry Allen In Upcoming Flash TV Series. Geoff Johns will be writing three episodes of Arrow which will introduce the character. I will admit to watching and enjoying Glee but I never warmed up to Sebastian played by Gustin. I really can't see the twenty-three year old as a Central City assistant police forensic investigator for he seems just too young. I do like the fact that they are keeping Barry as a comic book fan boy.
