We learned a few weeks ago that General Sam Lane, the militaristic father of Lois and Lucy Lane, will be coming to CBS’s Supergirl this season. And now, joining this week’s Red Tornado casting news, we know which actor will be playing Lane.
According to IGN, Transformers alum Glenn Morshower will recur on Supergirl as General Lane. This will mark the actor’s third comic book adaptation, following roles in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and X-Men: First Class. This iteration of General Lane is described as “a powerful military lifer — and an overprotective father to both Lucy Lane and her sister, Lois. His arrival in National City stirs up trouble for Supergirl when he enlists her in a dangerous government initiative.”
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Supergirl is set to premiere October 26th on CBS.
