Just when you thought CBS' Supergirl pilot was already jam packed with awesome talent, the show has added yet another recognizable face to its overpowered roster!
Supergirl has enlisted Faran Tahir as a mysterious character known only as "The Commander," who is described as “an alien military expert leading the forces aligned against Supergirl.”
The role sounds suspiciously similar to that of Commander Gor from the New Krypton arc, in which Supergirl foils his plan to assassinate Labor Guild member Tam-Or. But it's still to early to say.
You may remember Tahir from roles in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot and Iron Man where he played Captain Robau and the villainous Raza respectively.
Tahir's role is currently tied in as a guest spot, but with the opportunity of becoming a recurring role. He's a terrific actor so here's hoping The Commander, and Supergirl are around to stay for a long while.
Tahir joins Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Laura Benanti, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Dean Cain, Helen Slater and Jeremy Jordan in the currently in production pilot.
