Much like current TV shows based on DC Comics, such as Arrow, and The Flash, Supergirl will feature a number of characters rooted in the comic books. We reported last week that the CBS series is bringing in the villain Reactron, although the character had not been cast at that time. Today, Entertainment Weekly reveals that Chris Browning (Sons of Anarchy) has landed the role.
In the comics, Ben Krull, a.k.a. Reactron, was primarily known as a Superman villain from Metropolis, who wears a suit of armor powered by nuclear energy. Since Reactron has never been able to defeat the Man of Steel, he journeys to National City to get his revenge by trying to kill Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). The character is slated to appear in the show's third episode, with the potential to return as a recurring character throughout Season 1.

Faustino, who starred as Bud in the series, teased a “spinoff” at the premiere of “Vacation” this week. “Sony has it. They’re excited about it,” Faustino told E! “They’re working out some legal issues that we hope they work out.”

Faustino went on to say that the original cast, including Christina Applegate, was game to return. “The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it,” he said. “The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That’s all I can say right now. It involves me and few other people.”
After “Married… With Children” ended in 1997, the cast stayed busy. Applegate stars in the “Vacation” reboot, »

Ed Sheeran is gunning for that Outstanding Guest Actor Emmy: According to THR, the ginger crooner has taken a recurring role in Kurt Sutter's upcoming Bastard Executioner, a medieval drama set amid the violent rebellions of 14th-century Wales. Sheeran will play "an ambitious and deadly protégé of a high-ranking church elder," which makes it sound like he will almost certainly come to an unspeakably grisly end. If you're wondering how Ed Sheeran ended up in a prestige cable drama, it helps to know that he was a very public fan of Sutter's Sons of Anarchy and even contributed a song to that show's soundtrack. Sheeran also showed up on Sesame Street earlier this year, an appearance that was slightly more on-brand. »
