CBS has announced that Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal), Dean Cain (Lois & Clark) and Helen Slater (Supergirl) have joined the cast of their upcoming Supergirl series.
Flockhart will play Cat Grant, the founder of media conglomerate CatCo and Supergirl aka Kara Zor-El/Danver’s boss. No information has been released about the roles that Dean Cain and Helen Slater will play in the series.
The new cast announcements follow the recent news that Melissa Benoist (Glee) has landed the lead role of Kara with Mechad Brooks (Desperate Housewives) as Jimmy Olsen, Laura Benanti (Nashville) as Alura Zor-El, Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy) as Alex Danvers and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw.
Supergirl has been developed by Greg Berlanti and Allison Adler. It is expected to debut later this year and the buzz is already growing quickly.
