Battlestar Galactica's James Callis is to appear on Arrow.

The CW superhero drama - based on DC's Green Arrow comics - stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, a vigilante archer who fights crime.

Callis will play an elusive jewel thief known as The Dodger, who escapes justice by forcing innocent people to carry out his crimes, TV Guide reports.

The villain draws the attention of Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) when he hatches a plan to steal the prized Sherwood Ruby.
