Supergirl Enlists Former Faces from Krypton’s Past

DC Comics announced that the cast of CBS’s >Supergirl just added Two known Faces from Krypton’s Past, Actress Helen Slater and Actor Dean Cain.

Dean Cain, who played Superman in the 1990s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and Helen Slater, who played Supergirl in the 1984 film Supergirl, have joined the cast of the CBS/Warner Bros. pilot.

Details about the roles they’ll be playing are being kept under wraps.

For a generation of TV viewers, Dean Cain is more or less Superman. While he’s continued to carve out a successful career since Lois & Clark wrapped, it’s his playful banter with Teri Hatcher (who played Lois on the show) and rugged good looks at the Man of Steel that first made him a household name.

Similarly, Helen Slater first grabbed attention as Kara Zor-El in the Supergirl theatrical film, but that’s not the only time she’s dipped into the DC Universe. She also memorably voiced Talia al Ghul in Batman: The Animated Series and played Lara-El on Smallville.
