Calista Flockhart Cast As Cat Grant In SUPERGIRL

CBS and Warner Bros. have revealed that Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal, Brothers and Sisters) will be a series regular in the upcoming Supergirl TV show.

The actress will play Cat Grant, who in DC Comics lore is a Daily Planet columnist and potential love interest for Clark Kent. On the new show, of course, her role will be a bit different.

CBS/WB describe Flockhart's Cat Grant as "a self-made media magnate and founder of CatCo, Cat Grant started her career as a reporter and has built her company into a global powerhouse. Kara (series star Melissa Benoist) works at CatCo as her assistant."

Flockhart will be the fourth person to bring Cat Grant to life on TV. The first was Tracy Scoggins in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. The character also appeared on Smallville in two different incarnations: one played by Emilie Ullerup in Season 9 and another by Keri Lynn Pratt in the final season.

Supergirl is expected to debut this fall on CBS.
