If you’re ever looking for a name from the past then look no further than Kevin Sorbo. Sorbo rose to television immortality back in the 90s when he played Hercules. Sorbo is best known as television’s Hercules, having played the role in five television movies in 1994 before starring in his own hit TV series that ran six seasons from 1995-1999. He later headlined the sci-fi series Andromeda and more recently has made guest appearances on a number of shows, including Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, Hawaii Five-0, Psych, Two and a Half Men, and The O.C. This announcement came only days after

She too will be appearing in a recurring role, in addition to serving as season 2B’s big bad. And while her involvement is also shrouded in secrecy, our educated guess says she has something to do with the alien race that’s been popping up in the past few episodes.

“Supergirl” is getting yet another mystery villain. Shortly after casting former Lois Lane Teri Hatcher as a similarly described baddie, the show has enlisted Kevin Sorbo in a recurring role as one of Supergirl’s many foes.
“Since his days as Hercules, Kevin Sorbo has brought such a strong presence to the screen and we couldn’t be more excited to have him join us on ‘Supergirl,'” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said.
Sorbo’s geek pedigree is well accounted for at this point. First there was “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and that franchise’s assorted TV movies and animated joints, in which Sorbo played the eponymous Greek demigod. Then there was “Andromeda,” the sci-fi series created from unused Gene Roddenberry material that ran for five seasons, in which he was High Guard Captain Dylan Hunt, whose mission was to rekindle the light of civilization across several galaxies.
