This isn't going to be like any Supergirl we've seen before!

Of course, for those who saw the 1984 film, that's probably a good thing!

Just after the announcement that Glee star Melissa Benoist will play Superman's cousin Kara in the upcoming CBS show comes another landmark bit of casting news.

Rising star Mehcad Brooks, whom you might know from True Blood or more recently USA's Necessary Roughness, has just been cast in a pivotal DC Comics role!

Mehcad will be playing…

Jimmy Olsen??

Yep, despite being 35 years old, tall, strapping, hot, sexy… hold on, we lost our place…

Right, somehow this is supposed to be Superman's little buddy Jimmy?

And speaking of which, he's SuperMAN's pal. What's he doing on a Supergirl show?

That question is apparently one of the many mysteries that will be explored on the show.

All we know so far is that a very grown-up James Olsen is living in Supergirl's home of National City, far from Metropolis.

Hmm, sounds intriguing.

One thing is for sure, definitely have no idea what this show has in store for us.
