*Colin Salmon will take on a recurring role in CW’s upcoming drama pilot “Arrow,” a modern update of the DC Comics character Green Arrow, as a recurring.

The pilot stars Stephen Amell as the vigilante superhero who fights crime using archery, martial arts and technology under his secret identity as Oliver Queen, a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist-turned-outspoken politician in Star City.

Salmon will play Walter Steele, a former business associate of Oliver’s late father Robert Queen and the No. 2 executive at Queen Consolidated. He married Oliver’s mother Susanna Thompson following her husband’s death at sea and the disappearance of her son.

Salmon recently wrapped Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Resident Evil: Retribution,” reprising his role from the first “Resident Evil” film.
