Central City has just added two new residents.

EW has confirmed that Rick Cosnett, best known for playing Dr. Wes Maxfield on The Vampire Diaries, and Danielle Panabaker, who was last seen on USA’s Necessary Roughness, have been cast in the CW’s Flash pilot.

Cosnett will play Eddie Thawne, a star detective who recently transferred to Central City and harbors a dark secret. And Panabaker will play bioengineer Caitlin Snow, who lost her fiancé during an explosion at S.T.A.R. labs. (Fun fact: Caitlin Snow is also the name of the most recent incarnation of D.C villain Killer Frost. Hmmm…)

The actors are just the latest additions to a growing cast that also includes Grant Gustin, who plays the title role, and Jesse L. Martin, who joined the show earlier this week.

Gustin’s Barry Allen made his debut on the CW’s Arrow at the end of 2013 to rave reviews, and just before his inaugural appearance, producers announced their plans to produce a standalone pilot around the character. Originally, the plan had been to make the 20th episode of Arrow a backdoor pilot.
