Legends Of Tomorrow Season Finale Image Reveals Jax

With less than a week to go until Legends of Tomorrow‘s season finale arrives, it’s time we begin wrapping our heads around how much will be contained within that hour of television. I mean, not only will the team find themselves transported back to the Old West for the final battle against Mallus, but we’ve got some notable guest stars to look forward to seeing.

Already, we knew to expect the likes of Jonah Hex, John Constantine and Jefferson Jackson, but it’s the third hero we just mentioned that’ll be the focus of today’s discussion. You see, actor Franz Drameh made his exit from the series around the midseason mark, swiftly following in the footsteps of the other half of Firestorm, Victor Garber’s Martin Stein.

Jes Macallan Promoted To Series Regular For Legends Of Tomorrow Season 4

In its early days, Legends of Tomorrow was intended to be an anthology show, with storylines isolated to each given season and different lineups being showcased in each subsequent year. Of course, plans soon changed as viewers became attached to certain characters, but as time has gone on, we have seen a fair amount of heroes come and go.

A recent example of this would be Franz Drameh’s Jefferson Jackson, someone who’d been around since the pilot episode. After the other half of Firestorm, Victor Garber’s Martin Stein, exited the series, Drameh soon followed suit, as the writers may have not been able to figure out a way to keep his character around sans superpowers.

Fortunately, Jax’s position on the Waverider was recently filled by none other than Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), with Matt Ryan’s John Constantine also slated to join in the action in season 4. And,

Paul Shaffer Reveals How He Landed the 'Late Show With David Letterman' and 'SNL' (Exclusive)

In an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, Paul Shaffer reminisces on how he landed his Late Show with David Letterman and Saturday Night Live gigs. The 68-year-old admits his goal was to be a musician. "The first real jobs I got out of college were playing weddings, bar mitzvahs, topless clubs — anything available! Then on a fluke, I was hired to conduct Godspell [in Toronto in 1972] with some of the funniest people I've ever worked with. Many remain my good friends today, including Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, and Victor Garber." And that's how he ended up in comedy. "We hung out incessantly and tried to make each other laugh nonstop. I was influenced profoundly by them — they seemed like they were having a better time than anybody I knew. They looked at everything through a comedic prism, and I started doing the same." Paul tells Closer. He landed SNL when Howard Shore,
