“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.”

According to an excluisve report at TVLine, Seth Gabel (Fringe) has been cast as Count Vertigo, one of Arrow‘s deadliest villains yet to come. So far in the episode is about a deadly new drug that’s all the rage in Starling City, and its called Vertigo. Gabel’s episode is scheduled to air in early 2013.
This DC villain will be very different from the comic book version, his name won’t even be Vertigo and so far is very grounded to the reality. TVLine described Gabel’ character as the “scary and nightmarish” antagonist, and “Oliver’s deadliest adversary to date“. It’s safe to say Gabel’s Vertigo superpower – the ability to disorient and unbalance his victims – will remain intact.
