Variety has confirmed that Necessary Roughness actor Mehcad Brooks has been cast as Jimmy Olsen in the upcoming CBS superheroine drama Supergirl.
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.
In the Superman comics, Jimmy was close friends with Lois Lane and Kara’s cousin, Clark Kent.
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist in the title role and is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler (The New Normal), who also wrote the hour long pilot episode.
