Mehcad Brooks Is Jimmy Olsen

The DC Comics based Supergirl cast is rounding out. Mehcad Brooks will be playing James “Jimmy” Olsen, affable photographer and great friend to Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane. In this case, Jimmy will be Supergirl’s love interest.

Mehcad Brooks is known for his roles in Necessary Roughness, True Blood, and Desperate Housewives. He also had a recurring role in The Game. I’m anxious to see what type of spin Brooks will put on this mainstay character.

Supergirl already has a series commitment and will be airing on CBS.
