John Wesley Shipp Calls Billy Crudup An Awesome Choice For Henry Allen

Though John Wesley Shipp has played a variety of Flash characters in his life — both Barry Allen in the 1990s Flash series and the Earth-3 Jay Garrick in the current series’s second season finale — he is now best known as playing Henry Allen in the present program.

But as the feature film version of The Flash locks down its cast, Shipp is in the odd position to offer an opinion about the man who will play Henry in the film: Watchmen’s Billy Crudup. When he heard the news, he immediately took to Twitter (via Screen Rant) to call the actor “awesome.”

Shipp will again be seen as Henry Allen when The Flash TV series returns to The CW on October 4th.
