Watch: Emily Bett Rickards and Tom Cavanagh Star in New Superhero Short Film ‘Sidekick’
Tom Cavanagh and Emily Bett Rickards are names that are no doubt familiar to fans of DC's TV universe, with Rickards known for her role as Felicity on Arrow and Cavanagh known for his role on The Flash. What fans of the Flarrowverse may not know, however, is that the two recently teamed up for a new fifteen minute long superhero short film called "Sidekick."



Though quite sentimental and predictable, "Sidekick" certainly suits the form of short film. Both Rickards and Cavanagh act incredibly well in the piece, as do Josh Dallas (Once Upon a Time) as Strong Man/father, and Christian Michael Cooper (Prison Break) as Sidekick/son.

The official synopsis for the film states that "'Sidekick' is a short film about a struggling father who uses a bedtime story to impart an important life lesson to his son." It was directed by a cameraman for The Flash, Jeff Cassidy. He's previously directed two other shorts, and has multiple credits as a cameraman for movies and TV series.
