True Blood and Necessary Roughness alum, Mehcad Brooks has landed a role in the highly anticipated CBS superhero series, Supergirl. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooks has been cast to co-star alongside Melissa Benoist (Kara Zor-El / Supergirl) as Jimmy Olsen.
Olsen, in the CBS take, is a photographer at CatCo., where Kara works. He’s the salt of the earth and this only makes Kara crush on him even more. The character has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret. But with Kara emerging as Supergirl they grow closer.
