TV Line has learned that True Blood star Mehcad Brooks has joined the cast of Supergirl as Jimmy Olsen. As many know Jimmy Olsen is typically depicted as a Caucasian but given that The Flash changed Iris West to an African-American female (which turned out great) this isn't to much of a surprise. The site goes onto to describe Olsen as a "smart, worldly photographer for CatCo, the media company where Kara works. He has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret, and his salt-of-the-earth nature quickly piques Kara’s interest." Currently Whiplash star Melissa Benoist is set to star as the last daughter of Krypton.
