The Flash: Kimberly Williams-Paisley to guest star


“The Flash” adds to its cast as another well-known name joins the Arrowverse.

The Flash will add to its already-impressive cast list, as Kimberly Williams-Paisley will guest star in the upcoming episode “Goldfaced,” the thirteenth episode of season five.

This news was previously reported by TVLine.

According to TVLine, Williams-Paisley will play “multiple versions” of Renee Adler, one of several ex-wives of detective Sherloque Wells (Tom Cavanagh).

Cavanagh has played four different main roles throughout the series, thanks to the at-times fluid and wonky rules of the Multiverse, at somewhere between eight and ten alternative versions of Harrison Wells.

The two have worked together before, starring as a married couple in the 2006 film adaptation of Thomas Rockwell’s 1973 young-adult novel How to Eat Fried Worms.

Just as Sherloque is modeled after Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, it is likely that Williams-Paisley’s character of Renee Adler will be at least partially based on Irene Adler, the only known woman Sherlock ever fell in love with.

Williams-Paisley is likely best known for playing Steve Martin’s daughter Annie Banks-McKenzie in the Father of the Bride films, though she has also starred in a main role as Jim’s sister Dana on According to Jim and had a recurring role as Gretchen on Two and a Half Men. 

Her recurring role of Peggy Kenter on Nashville came naturally, as in real life she is married to country music star Brad Paisley.
