"Supergirl" has cast Ian Gomez ("Felicity") in a recurring role as the character Snapper Carr for Season 2. The character originated in DC Comics' "Brave and the Bold" #28 -- the first appearance of the Justice League -- as a civilian aid to the team.
According to Entertainment Weekly, "Supergirl's" take on Snapper Carr is described as a "...headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. Snapper's commitment to hard-hitting journalism pushes CatCo reporters to dig deeper in the pursuit of excellence. He's a man who tells people what he thinks of them, and his no-holds barred approach pushes Kara (Melissa Benoist) in unexpected ways."
Snapper Carr will make his first appearance in the second episode of "Supergirl" Season 2.
"Supergirl" returns for its second season Mondays this fall on the CW.
