SUPERGIRL Season 2 Adds Former HERCULES Star Kevin Sorbo As A Villain

On Tuesday, we learned television's former Lois Lane was joining Supergirl and now, we've received word that television's former Hercules, Kevin Sorbo, will be joining her! Come take a look!

Talk about a blast from the past as Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Kevin Sorbo has joined the cast of Supergirl season two as a mysterious new villain that will surely cause Herculean-sized trouble for Kara. No further details were provided, but he's expected to debut during the latter half of this season.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released a statement following the announcement where he expressed his excitement: "Since his days as Hercules, Kevin Sorbo has brought such a strong presence
to the screen and we couldn’t be more excited to have him join us on Supergirl."

This latest piece of news comes days after it was announced that former Lois & Clark star Teri Hatcher had also been cast as a mysterious major villain - said to be the season's newest big bad. It's unclear whether we'll see Hatcher & Sorbo cross paths, but guess we'll all find out together in the coming weeks.

Sorbo is best known as television's Hercules, having played the role in five television movies in 1994 before starring in his own hit TV series that ran six seasons from 1995-1999. He later headlined the sci-fi series Andromeda and more recently has made guest appearances on a number of shows, including Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23Hawaii Five-0Psych, Two and a Half Men, and The O.C.
