Doesn’t it seem like every other day brings us some new casting news for the CBS Supergirl series? Well today is one of those days. “The Last Five Years” star Jeremy Jordan is set to guest star on the pilot (with the potential to recur on the series) as Winslow “Winn” Schott, a tech genius and superstar IT whiz who works alongside Kara (“Glee’s” Melissa Benoist) at Cat Grant’s (Calista Flockhart) company, CatCo. DC Comics fans will recognize the name of Jordan’s character as one of the aliases of the villain Toyman.” While the actor may not look like his comic book counterpart, I’m ok with that. A character like the Toyman could use a reinvention.
Meanwhile, as production on the pilot inches closer to production, Supergirl herself Melissa Benoist has taken a behind the scenes photo of herself with recently cast Helen Slater, who of course played Supergirl two decades ago, in the 1984 feature film. It’s a cool geek moment seeing two generations of Supergirl together in one image.
