‘AGT’ Contestant Troy James To Guest Star on ‘The Flash’
Creepy contortionist Troy James was eliminated from America’s Got Talent back in Judge Cuts, so now he’s taking his career in another direction and becoming…a supervillain!
According to TV Insider, Troy is set to appear on the fifth episode of The Flash Season 5. His role? A carnival performer-turned-criminal called Rag Doll (civilian name Peter Merkel). The character has appeared in publications and other media from DC Comics since 1942.
The character of Rag Doll is notorious for his “triplejointedness” a (fictional) condition which gives him a wide variety of contortion abilities that come in handy when doing evil deeds and battling superheroes.
Having seen Troy’s AGT acts earlier this summer, it’s no wonder he was chosen for the part; not only can he twist and bend like nobody’s business, the scare factor in his performances is off-the-charts.
You can catch Troy’s episode of The Flash later this fall on The CW and America’s Got Talent Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
