Arrow, Seth Gabel's Storyline ScoopArrow: Scoop on Seth Gabel’s guest-star arc as Vertigo from TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich



Here’s some scoop on Arrow from TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich’s weekly column Matt’s Inside Line for the week of 12/6/12.




While working the red carpet at Fringe‘s 100th Episode party, I had the chance to ask Lincoln Lee Seth Gabel about his upcoming run of villainy on Arrow. As the CW hit’s incarnation of the DC baddie Vertigo, he’s playing The Count, a “street thug drug kingpin” whose No. 1 product is dubbed Vertigo. If taken orally, the drug makes the user feel as if “walking on air,” Gabel shared. But if injected… that’s when bad things happen – drawing the interest of one hooded vigilante. “It’s the most fun I’ve ever had,” said Gabel, who described his alter ego’s look as “very street,in a flamboyant, theatrical, grounded way,” with spiky hair, fingerless gloves and “a lot of black.” Does Oliver have his work cut out for him? Sure sounds like it. “I basically rule the street, so he’s got a long way to go up the chain to get to me,” Gabel warns.



Arrow returns with 1×09, ‘Year’s End,’ on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 8pm on The CW.
