British soccer star-turned-actor Vinnie Jones is set to embrace his villainous side again after landing a role in comic book superhero series Arrow.

The Snatch star has been cast as ruthless gang leader Danny 'Brick' Brickwell in the current third season of the Tv action show, according to Variety.com.

Jones isn't the only new castmember on the current season of Arrow - Superman Returns star Brandon Routh has joined the cast as scientist Ray Palmer, aka The Atom, while Japanese actress Rila Fukushima has signed on to replace Devon Aoki as a mentor to Stephen Amell's title character, based on DC Comics crime-fighter Green Arrow.
