Rip Hunter’s team is about to gain a few new members. In season two of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” a “Han Solo-like” character with superpowers and an African-American soldier from the 1940s will join the team in series regular roles.
According to TVLine, The CW is seeking:
A male in his late-20s to mid-30s is being sought to play a guy who grew up in the shadow of his World War II hero grandfather and has used a Han Solo-like facade to conceal his insecurity — until, that is, the development of super powers enables him to love up to his family legacy.
Also being cast for “Legends” Season 2 is the female member of an elite paramilitary team living in the 1940s. An African-American, she is scrutinized in her time for both her gender and race and thus has worked twice as hard to be a perfect soldier. That said, she blames herself for — and aims to avenge — the death of a team member for whom she had repressed feelings.
In addition to these two new characters, “Suits” star Patrick J. Adams will also appear as a “fun character the fans will love,” though no details have yet been released about his role. This as-yet-unknown character will debut in “Legendary,” the season one finale.
Airing Thursday nights at 8 pm EST on The CW, “Legends of Tomorrow” stars Caity Lotz as White Canary, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein (one-half of Firestorm), Franz Drameh as Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (the other half of Firestorm), Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl and Arthur Darvill as time-traveler Rip Hunter.
