Mehcad Brooks to Play Jimmy Olsen on Supergirl


Mehcad Brooks (Desperate Housewives, True Blood) has been officially cast as Jimmy Olsen for the Supergirl television series for CBS.

His version of Jimmy is described as a smart, worldly photographer for CatCo, the media company where Kara who’ll be played by Melissa Benoist, works for.

Other Supergirl roles still to be cast include Kara’s science-minded foster-sister, Alex; Cat Grant, the CEO of CatCo; CatCo colleague Wynn Schott; and Hank Henshaw, the Supergirl-obsessed director of the DEO (Department of Extra-Normal Operations).

No official release date for the premiere of Supergirl has been announced by CBS.
