For those of you counting down the days until the Oct. 10 premiere of "Arrow" on the CW, we share in your enthusiastic anticipation, particularly because this writer can't go anywhere without seeing star Stephen Amell and his toned torso plastered up on billboards everywhere. When MTV News caught up with the leading man at the iHeartRadio Fest in Las Vegas recently, we asked for his thoughts on CW's not-so-subtle marketing strategy.
"I'm in Vancouver, I don't see anything!" he said. "I just see what people send me on my Twitter account, which doesn't suck by the way, it's pretty awesome."
Also awesome was the fact that minutes after completing our chat with Amell, his costar Colin Donnell arrived for a chat and Amell couldn't resist coming back into frame to give his buddy some adorable touchy-feely bromantic love.
"We have a bromance like you wouldn't believe, actually," Donnell admitted, before giving his buddy serious praise for his work ethic and commitment to the show. "Stephen, I don't know how he does it. He really really turns it on every day. He's working his ass off, it's really awesome."
Lastly we asked Donnell if his character will be good, partially good or good-then-bad this season.
"Well… I don't know. It remains to be seen, it's really cool," he said. "The comic book lore, the writers do everything for a reason and there's a reason I'm named Tommy Merlyn so we'll see what happens. I don't know how everything will turn out, I really don't."
