CBS’ Supergirl Adds A Former Superman and Supergirl By Casting Dean Cain and Helen Slater

27 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | | See recent news »

A former Superman and Supergirl has joined the new CBS incarnation of the Girl of Steel! TVLine broke the big (and possibly biggest geek worthy) news for Supergirl earlier today, revealing that Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’s Dean Cain and Supergirl The Movie’s Helen Slater have joined the project in two secret roles. Cain is known for his terrific potrayal of Clark Kent a.k.a. Superman on the Lois & Clark series back in 1993 that ran for four seasons on ABC (the series also starred Desperate HousewivesTeri Hatcher as Lois Lane). He also appeared in an episode of the Superman prequel series Smallville as Dr. Curtis Knox (an adapation of the DC villain Vandal Savage) in Season 7. Slater is known for her great portryal in the sadly not-so-well-received Supergirl movie back in 1984, which starred big names such as Peter O’Toole and Mia Farrow. Like Cain, »

With several main characters already cast, CBS' Supergirl has added two more actors that many superhero fans will surely get a kick out of.

Unfortunately, the site doesn't specify which characters they will be playing.

Helen Slater and Dean Cain join a burgeoning cast that already includes Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, Mehcad Brooks as Kara's neighbor and co-worker Jimmy Olsen, Calista Flockhart as Kara and Jimmy's employer and CatCo founder Cat Grant, Laura Benanti as Kara's Kryptonian birth mother Alura Zor-El, Chyler Leigh as Kara's foster sister Alex Danvers and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, who, in the DC Comics, eventually becomes Cyborg Superman.

Helen Slater And Dean Cain Land Secret Guest Spots On CBS’ Supergirl Series

27 February 2015 11:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series continues to flesh out its growing cast roster with the addition of two surprising – yet familiar – names. TV Line reports that Helen Slater and Dean Cain have boarded the show for what are being described as two “top secret, guest-starring roles.”

This marks the third time each actor has appeared in the Superman-Supergirl canon. Slater first made waves in the titular role for 1984’s Supergirl movie, while Cain portrayed Clark Kent on the small screen in ABC’s long-running series, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Both went on to guest star on The CW’s Superman drama Smallville; the former as Clark’s birth mother Lara, and Cain as Dr. Curtis Knox. For now, the network are keeping the details of their specific roles on Supergirl under wraps.

One thing’s for certain – they won’t be reprising their original franchise roles. Kara »
