The Expendables and Rocky IV star makes his Arrow debut as Kovar on Wednesday night (09Nov16) in America, and show producers are already trying to sign him up for appearances next season.

"We rethought some of the stories a little bit once we knew we had him, once we knew he was available to us for this character," executive producer Wendy Mericle previously told Access Hollywood, and now her sidekick Marc Guggenheim tells the news outlet, "He's spectacular... I watched his dailies and then we actually immediately made a change to his deal."

The DC Comics bad guy Lundgren portrays on TV only briefly featured in the Green Arrow comic book story - the Russian crime boss, who becomes Arrow's nemesis, controlled the underworld and an army of rogue government soldiers.
