From the moment Mehcad Brooks was cast in the role of James Olsen on Supergirl, it was clear that this wasn’t your father’s Jimmy Olsen. (In fact, you’d better not call him “Jimmy” at all, if you’re not Superman.) Suave, sexy and confident, Brooks and his take on the role are a far cry from the red-hair-and-bow-tie Olsen of old.
Last week had Kara seeing red (as in Red Tornado), but Supergirl’s newest adversary may just have her screaming. Warner Bros. and CBS just announced that actress Italia Ricci (Chasing Life, Don Jon) has been cast in the role of Siobhan Smythe, perhaps better known around these parts as Silver Banshee.
