In the small town of Duffy, Georgia, a small family-owned wrestling league struggles to stay afloat, with the fake tension the sales draw, while the real tension threatens to rip it apart. Jack Spade (Stephen Amell) plays the heel against his brother Ace Spade (Alexander Ludwig), the face aka the hero.
DrZaiusGod and I recently got a chance to see an advanced screening of the pilot episode of the new Starz series Heels at the Kauffman Theater in New York City, and were treated to a Q&A afterwards with some of the show’s stars, the showrunner/EP Mike O’Malley, and director Pete Segal.
Check out our video discussion of the episode and the Q&A, along with the trailer of the new show, here below.

This led to the Arrow star wrestling his first match, a tag team encounter with WWE star Neville against Stardust and King Wade Barrett at SummerSlam.

Last week on The CW’s crossover “Crisis on Earth-X,” members of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow converged on Central City to celebrate the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West (Grant Gustin, Candice Patton). Alas, that wedding did not happen because Nazis from Earth-35 aka Earth-X, the terrible world where Hitler won WWII, invaded the church and a fierce battle ensued. Our heroes had to fight their way out through Metallo, Red Tornado, OverGirl (Melissa Benoist), Evil Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), and Eobard Thawne wearing a Wells (Tom Cavanagh) face. They had one hero on their side that was lost on their Earth – Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller).

Warning! Spoilers below for all parts of The CW Crossover, including tonight’s episode of The Flash!
So far, on Crisis on Earth-X, all of the heroes and legends converged on Central City to attend the wedding of Barry and Iris (Grant Gustin, Candice Patton). Of course, happiness can’t happen without hitches and glitches, so Nazis invaded the ceremony, led by evil Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), evil Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), and the original Eobard Thawne wearing a Wells (Tom Cavanagh) face. They came from Earth-X, the 53rd earth where the Nazis won WWII. The plan? Save dying evil Supergirl by taking the heart of our Kara. Some cool battles ensued, but our heroes were left in a Nazi prison at the end of Arrow last night.
