True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks Cast As Jimmy Olsen on SUPERGIRL

Yesterday, it was announced that True Blood’s “Egg” whom was played by Mehcad Brooks, has been cast in the role of Jimmy Olsen for the upcoming Supergirl series heading to CBS. He will join co-star Glee’s Melissa Benoist who has been picked to play Kara Zor-El. Unlike in the DC Comics, this version of Olsen, is a photographer at CatCo.,
 where Kara works. Also, as you noticed, he’s not a pale white male with red hair either. I’m sure the Internet was set on fire after this casting announcement, but I’m staying far away from that. Supergirl has already be given a series order from CBS, it will be produced by Arrow and Flash‘s Greg Berlanti and his partner Ali Adler. No word on when the series will premiere yet. (Source: THR)
