‘Arrow’ season 2 spoilers: What is Colton Haynes doing to prepare?

Roy HarperAs you may have heard already, Colton Haynes has been promoted to be a series regular on “Arrow” for its second season, and with that in mind, the actor is going to have a chance to have a pretty interesting story that will hopefully take the story of Roy Harper up to another level.

Of course, with this apparently also comes great preparation. How much so? Let’s just say that the former “Teen Wolf” star is going to be hitting the gym very soon. In a new interview with E! News, here is what the actor had to say about some of what he is going to be doing in the weeks ahead to prepare for the part:

“I have to gain another 25 pounds of muscle, so I have a feeling that I’m going to have to possible be wearing a suit of some sort.”

If you are a fan of the Green Arrow comics, we’re pretty sure that you are probably going to have a pretty big reaction to this news. Harper is one of the few actors on the show who is officially confirmed for the new season, along along Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity) and we’re assuming Stephen Amell, mostly because there’s pretty much no way that you can even have a series without him. (Some other people, like Katie Cassidy, are almost surely a given, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.)

Are you ready to see the other side of Roy Harper emerge on “Arrow,” and do you like what Haynes is doing with the part so far? If you want to check out a preview for the next new “Arrow” episode, be sure to head on over to the link here.
