TV’s Vandal Savage Will Be Played by an Actor With the Coolest Name Ever




Am I wrong to imagine the guy already has a secret super-identity? Because that right there is a comic-book name if ever I heard one. It might sound perfectly ordinary in his native Denmark, I suppose.

Vandal Savage, as many of you correctly guessed before he was announced, is the immortal villain who’ll oppose our time-traveling CW/DC heroes in Legends of Tomorrow. If Casper Crump’s acting is even remotely as cool as his name, I’ll be happy.

I think my first-born now needs to be called Casper Crump Thompson. Don’t tell Julia I said that. FEAR THE CRUMP!
