The cast for CBS’s Supergirl continues to grow and grow. This time, two actors but three characters have been added to the series.
Supergirl got a two for one by casting Iddo Goldberg as both Dr T.O. Morrow and Red Tornado. According to ComicBook.com, who broke the story, Red Tornado is the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most. This does pose the question of how Goldberg will be playing both the android and the man who created it. It could be that Morrow and the robot fuse together in an accident (akin to Firestorm in CW’s The Flash), or possibly that Goldberg will simply be voicing Red Tornado, who may be created in Morrow’s image.
The third new character coming to Supergirl is General Sam Lane, who’ll be played by Glenn Morshower. The General is the father of Lois and Lucy Lane, the latter of which has already been confirmed to be appearing in the series as well. According to IGN, his arrival in National City stirs up trouble for Kara when he enlists her in a dangerous government initiative.
Supergirl premieres Monday, October 26th on CBS.
