Colton Haynes Explains Why He Needs Stunt Double on ‘Arrow’


The CW drama Arrow is back for Season 2 with Colton Haynes returning as Roy Harper.

In the DC comic the hit CW show is based off, Roy eventually becomes the Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy, so Colton reveals we can expect to see Roy getting down and dirty.

However, it won’t exactly be Colton doing the job.

The actor reveals to On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “I have an amazing stunt double that does pretty much everything for me. Because when I do stunts, it looks like I’m literally doing So You Think You Can Dance or trying to be a backup dancer for Rihanna.”

And by backup dancer for Rihanna, we’re assuming he’s referring to the reject tryouts!

Catch season two of Arrow tonight, October 9, at 8/7c.
