He may be off Teen Wolf, but he won't be off the small screen for very long.

Colton Haynes, who shocked fans of that MTV hit by announcing his departure this fall, has been cast on another hit show: the actor will debut in early 2013 as Roy Harper, "a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from 'the Glades,'" according to a CW insider.

According to TV Guide Magazine, the character will serve as a love interest for Willa Holland's Thea.

The network also teases Roy will "become an important player in the larger world of Arrow."

The Arrow Season 1 winter finale, meanwhile, airs on Wednesday night.

Interesting because They call Thea 'Speedy' but Roy Harpers superhero name is 'Speedy' before he becomes 'Red Arrow'. I hope they don't bring him in as just a love interest & they actually use him as being Oliver's sidekick.
