Out of Variety and Hollywood Reporter, we’ve got one more name to add to the cast for CBS’s new series Supergirl. Iconic Superman BFF, Jimmy Olsen, will be played by Mehcad Brooks.

Necessary Roughness

It’s reported, beyond this, that he will be a love interest to the title character of Kara Zor-El (Supergirl, played by Melissa Benoist). The description from Variety is that “Jimmy, based on the DC Comics character, is an attractive photographer at CatCo, the media company where Kara Zor-El works, as an assistant to Cat Grant (yet to be cast). Recently, Jimmy has been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret.”
