A few weeks ago, it was announced that fan-favorite DC hero Red Tornado will appear in CBS’s Supergirl series. Now, the show has cast this role, as well as his creator, Doctor T.O. Morrow. The twist? The two will be played by the same actor.
According to ComicBook.com, Salem actor Iddo Goldberg is set to play “Dr. T.O. Morrow (aka Red Tornado)” on Supergirl. It is unknown which episode he will debut in. The show’s iteration of Red Tornado is described as “the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.”
In the comics, Red Tornado (a hero) and T.O. Morrow (a villain) were never one and the same; Morrow was just the inventor of the Red Tornado android. However, perhaps in Supergirl, Morrow models the android after himself, making the idea of one actor playing both of them seem logical. But that is just speculation on my part.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Supergirl premieres October 30th on CBS.
