'Arrow' casts Cynthia Addai-Robinson as A.R.G.U.S. agent Amanda Waller
Addai-Robinson's credits also include "Columbiana," "The Vampire Diaries" and "FlashForward." The actress' look is much more in line with the New 52 version of the character, a decision that proved controversial among Amanda Waller fans, as the head of the Suicide Squad was traditionally depicted as shorter and overweight. The svelte and young version of Waller actually made her debut in the "Green Lantern" film, where she was played by Angela Bassett.
"Arrow" returns to the CW on October 9.
