Nick Zano Takes a Superhero Role!
Minority Report and 2 Broke Girls alum, Nick Zano, has landed a role as a season regular for the CW’s hit supernatural drama, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. According to Deadline, Zano will portray Dr. Nate Heywood, a historian whose grandfather was a member of the Justice Society of America, Commander Steel.
In the comics, Nate becomes Steel/Citizen Steel, a former member of the Justice League of America. The producers of the CW series are being ambiguous whether Nate will walk in his grandfather’s super heroic footsteps but, given the superhero nature of the show, that appears almost certain.
Nate Heywood is one of two new series regular roles the WBTV-produced DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is adding for Season 2 after bidding farewell to Season 1 regular Ciara Renée in the finale, while another regular cast member, Wentworth Miller, will become recurring as he will appear on both The Flash and Legends next season. In Season 2, “the composition of the team is going to change; there will be some new faces on the Waverider,” Legends co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim said last month. “The season finale planted some very significant flags in terms of what the new concept of the show will be in season 2. The team’s mission statement for Season 2 is more compelling than Season 1, and at the same time, it is more streamlined. It’s a little bit higher concept, a very clean notion that will allow the show to do things that it does best.”
