Newcomer Gustin, whose previous TV credits include roles in “Glee” and “90210,” is perhaps best known for his starring role as Barry Allen in “The Flash.”
The fan-favorite CW TV series based on the DC comics character is a spinoff of “Arrow” and chronicles Allen’s transformation into the titular superhero following an accident at S.T.A.R. Labs that finds the assistant forensic investigator imbued with superhuman speed.
Gustin will be presented with the Breakthrough Performance Award.
Founded in 1973, the Saturn Awards are presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films to recognize and honor the best in genre entertainment.
The 41st Saturn Awards will be held on June 25 at the Castaway Starlight Ballroom in Burbank.
