Supergirl Adds Kevin Sorbo as a Villain for Season Two
Supergirl is about to face off against a former Hercules when Kevin Sorbo makes his way to National City this season. The famous TV actor will be joining Teri Hatcher as one of the villains that Kara (Melissa Benoist) will be fighting against during the latter half of season two.
Entertainment Weekly broke the news that Kevin Sorbo would join the cast of the The CW series as a mysterious villain. We can surely expect some big trouble from Kevin’s character when he fights against the Girl of Steel. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg gave a statement regarding this latest casting news. “Since his days as Hercules, Kevin Sorbo has brought such a strong presence to the screen and we couldn’t be more excited to have him join us on Supergirl.” This new piece of casting news comes off the heels of the announcement that Lois & Clark star Teri Hatcher was cast as a big villain. We don’t know if these two would be teaming up, but we may find out in the next few weeks.
Sorbo has been known for playing the titular role in Hercules, where he played the powerful demi-god hero for six seasons from 1995 to 1999 including five TV films based on the series. He later went on to play the lead in the sci-fi series Andromeda. Since then, he made a bunch of guest appearances on shows like Hawaii Five-0, Psych, and The O.C.
