In the comics, Brick is known for having thick, invulnerable skin. In Arrow, his character is the ruthless leader of a gang and is known by the name "Brick" because he's been shot many (many) times, but he's never been killed. His character's name first appeared on Oliver's (Stephen Amell) list of targets in Season 1.

Jones is set to appear in Episodes 10, 11, and 12 of Arrow's current third season, which airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
