This “Arrow” star may compete in “American Ninja Warrior” next year

Not all actors are great at stepping into the roles that they play on TV in real life, but this Arrow star isn’t afraid to get physical.

Stephen Amell, who plays the lead on the action-packed TV show and does his own stunts, may compete in one of the craziest, real-life physical challenges on television — if he has his way.


The superhero actor reached out to NBC’s American Ninja Warrior saying he would like to compete on the show next year.

The show is known for it’s challenging elimination course that has shut down even the most skilled and practiced athletes, from finishing the full run, so does Amell even have a chance?

The show thinks he might have a chance!

Host Matt Iseman tweeted back to the star saying they’d love to have him on the show and joked about borrowing some set scenes from his show. false

According to TVLine, although both parties seem totally excited about it (and we are too), it’s not solidified yet.

He sure looks in shape enough to give the show a go and we know he loves competition so we’re going to hold our breath that this one happens!
