Ian Ziering Cast as Blue Devil in ‘Swamp Thing’ Streaming Series

Ian Ziering announced today via twitter that he will be joining the cast of DC Universe’s streaming series Swamp Thing as the lovable Blue Devil.

The actor, known for his roles on Beverly Hills 90210 and Syfy’s Sharknado series, will step into the blue and yellow pirate boots of one of DC’s prominent supernatural characters.  The character first debuted in 1984 (ala a special preview insert in Firestorm #24) and was created by Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn, and Paris Cullins. His solo series ran for nearly three years and he would later appear as a member of the Justice League and Shadowpact.  The stunt man turned supernatural hero was also rumored to be a part of the long gestating and maligned Justice League Dark film.  At this time it appears that JLD is DOA, but having two competing versions of the same character on the small screen and the silver screen has never stopped DC before, so don’t be surprised if fans get two versions to further confuse them.

Ziering was last seen on Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition 4 where he lost a close battle to fellow celebrity, Latoya Jackson.  Let’s hope he puts some of those celery chopping skills to work in Swamp Thing, aiding the big green boy in his battle against a host of critters from beyond.

No release date has been confirmed for the series as of yet, but stay tuned to Horror News Network for further details.
