During a Arrow Q&A with the show’s producers, Geoff Johns, and Stephen Amell that Currie Graham will be playing 'King' of the Royal Flush Gang in the series’ sixth episodes, "Legacies."
"You’ll see with the Royal Flush Gang, that the dynamic of the family, and the iconography of the playing cards are going to be there, without the supernatural bent. I think we’ve come up with a really clever way to portray them in a more grounded, realistic world," Series producer Andrew Kreisberg says. "The Royal Flush Gang are in episode 6, and we’re really proud of that episode. We think it’s one of the most successful attempts at alchemy that we’ve performed. The Huntress is pretty much straight out of the book because she’s such a grounded character, but the Royal Flush Gang were the most outlandish villains from the comics, but they turned out to be our most grounded villains, and the relationship that Oliver has with King, the leader of the gang, we’re really proud of it. He’s played by Currie Graham, who is a tremendously talented actor," he says.
