Cynthia Addai-Robinson has been cast to play Amanda Waller, the A.R.G.U.S. agent in charge of the Suicide Squad in the CW drama Arrow's second season. Arrow is based on the chronicles of the DC Comics superhero Green Arrow.Waller will first appear in the 6th episode of the series' upcoming second season.She will apparently be a younger and slimmer version of the Waller character from the comics. You might remember that, Angela Bassett played Waller in the,Green Lantern movie that starred Ryan Reynolds.For those unfamiliar with the DC comics universe, here's what I dug up… Nicknamed “The Wall,” she is a former congressional aide and government agent often placed in charge of the aforementioned Suicide Squad, a semi-secret government-run group of former super-villains working in return for amnesty. She also was the former leader (code rank: White Queen) of the covert-ops organization, Checkmate. She later served as Secretary of Metahuman Affairs under President Lex Luthor.
