IGN has exclusively revealed that 24 alum Glenn Morshower has been cast in the recurring role of General Sam Lane in the CBS’ freshman superhero show Supergirl.
IGN describes this version of General Lane as “a powerful military lifer — and an overprotective father to both Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and her sister, Lois. His arrival in National City stirs up trouble for Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) when he enlists her in a dangerous government initiative.”
The last time General Lane appeared on the small screen, he was played by Michael Ironside, who is now on The Flash playing the father of Captain Cold and Golden Glider, on Smallville.
Supergirl premieres on October 26, 2015 at 8:30pm ET/PT on CBS and Global.
