Following the announcement that Melissa Benoist will star in CBS’s Supergirl pilot/potential series, we have some more casting news. It has been announced that Necessary Roughness actor Mehcad Brooks will play James “Jimmy” Olsen in the show, which is co-written and executive produced by The Flash and Arrow‘s Greg Berlanti. 
Olsen is a character frequently seen in Superman lore, appearing in various film and television projects. He is usually depicted as a member of the Daily Planet crew. However, Supergirl‘s version is described as a photographer at CatCo, the media company where Kara works. He has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret.” Still to be cast are Cat Grant, Hank Henshaw, Wynn Schott and Kara’s foster sister, Alex. Stay tuned for more Supergirl news as we have it.
