Supergirl Casts Lena Luthor and a Possible Cat Grant Replacement for Season 2
Supergirl is shaking things up significantly for season two, and not just because it's moving networks. The DC show is currently casting five new roles, including Lena Luthor, a familiar DC Comics detective, and a potential replacement for Calista Flockhart's Cat Grant.

Lex Luthor has been confirmed for the first two episodes of season two, but his kid sister, Lena Luthor, has been announced as a new series regular. According to TV Line, the casting call reveals that she is between the ages of 25 and 35, is described as "sexy and smart and determined to get what she wants," and comes to National City to "get out of the shadow of her infamous brother."

The other series regular is probably a DC superhero, but for now is going by the name of "Nick Farrow." He's described as a "brash leading man" type who butts heads with Kara, which means he may provide another love interest for the fans who have found her romance with James to be lackluster. The description also states that he is trying to "leave behind his selfish and hedonistic ways" and that in spending time with Kara "the hero in Nick might finally come out." This must be a superhero, but I'm at a loss as to who it might be.

The other three roles are recurring characters, and they include the "out-and-proud" DC Comics detective Maggie Sawyer, who was Batwoman's girlfriend in the comics. On the villain side, they're casting The Doctor, "the diabolical female leader of Project Cadmus who uses her surgical skills to implant prisoners with alien technology." And finally, they're casting a newsman named Snapper Carr, who becomes head of CatCo's "old school" division. There have been persistent rumors that Calista Flockhart may not return as a series regular, since she is reluctant to relocate to Vancouver for the CW switch, but at least the fact that he's recurring probably means that she won't depart from the show completely.
