It's been a good month for Dylan Bruce. The "Orphan Black" star, who recently scored a guest role on Season 2 of The CW's "Arrow," is also joining Lifetime's adaptation of "Flowers in the Attic," HuffPost TV has confirmed.
The actor broke the news via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon:

Bruce will play Bart Winslow, the younger second husband of Corrine (Heather Graham), who marries the widow believing she doesn't have any children. Corrine's two eldest children Chris and Cathy will be played by Mason Dye and "Mad Men's" Kiernan Shipka, while Corinne's cruel mother Olivia will be played by Ellen Burstyn.
In V.C. Andrews' original novel, after being abandoned at their grandparents' house by their mother following their father's death, Cathy, Chris and their two younger siblings are kept locked in an attic by their fanatical grandmother. Their imprisonment is the result of a dark family secret that soon begins to manifest itself in the younger generation.
Between "Arrow" and "Flowers," it sounds like we won't have long to wait to see Bruce on our screens, but fans can also look forward to catching him in Season 2 of "Orphan Black," which returns in 2014.
