Today TV Guide posted the first images of Seth Gabel (Fringe) as The Count in the upcoming episode of Arrow. Gabel’s character is based on the DC Comics villain Count Vertigo, however in the series the name Vertigo belongs to a new drug that begins to spread in Starling City.
“He’s a very interesting character, and the way Seth performs him, he plays him with a lot of flair,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
“The fun thing about The Count is he’s actually a businessman. He’s got a little bit of a sociopathic streak in him, for sure, but he sees himself as an entrepreneur, as creating not drugs, but art. He compares his drug to performing a social service and to a fine wine, so he has a very skewed view of what it is that he does. At the same time, we know that he’s not only sociopathic, but he’s very sadistic as well.”
Seth Gabel will debut as The Count in two weeks, in an episode titled “Vertigo”
