Calista Flockhart Joins Cast of ‘Supergirl’

We know a lot about the cast for forthcoming CBS Supergirl TV series. We’ve known who is playing Supergirl, we’ve known who’s playing Jimmy Olsen — but we still didn’t know who was playing Cat Grant.

Well, now we do. THR is reporting that Calista Flockhart has been cast in the role. Flockhart is, of course, best known as the star of the 90s phenomenon Ally McBeal. Cat Grant, in her Supergirl incarnation, will be a “media magnate” and our heroine will be working as her assistant.

I presume trying to have it all.

Jokes aside, this is pretty solid casting all around, so I’m optimistic about the show. Here’s hoping CBS doesn’t muck it up.

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
