EW reports Ian Gomez has been cast to recur as DC Comics character Snapper Carr in the second season of the Supergirl TV show, premiering on The CW, Monday, October 10, 2016 at 8:00pm ET/PT. Gomez played Andy on Cougar Town, which was cancelled by ABC, then renewed by TBS, before ending after six seasons in 2015.
According to the report, next season on Supergirl, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) hires Snapper as the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. If he is the editor-in-chief and Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) boss though, what is Cat going to do with herself? The Supergirl TV series cast also includes: Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, and Jeremy Jordan. Tyler Hoechlin, Lynda Carter, and Floriana Lima have recently been added.
On Supergirl, Snapper Carr is a headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. Snapper’s commitment to hard-hitting journalism pushes CatCo reporters to dig deeper in the pursuit of excellence. He’s a man who tells people what he thinks of them, and his no-holds barred approach pushes Kara (Melissa Benoist) in unexpected ways. (In the comics, Snapper Carr was a supporting civilian Justice League character.)
Supergirl premiered on CBS in the fall of 2015. By picking up the second season, The CW saved the superhero drama from cancellation. The CW is a joint-venture of the CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Entertainment.
Since news broke that Supergirl season two would film in Vancouver, there have been rumors that Flockhart would appear in the less frequently. Neither the actress nor the network have confirmed these stories. Speaking of negotiating her availability, CW boss Mark Pedowitz has said, “We’re happy to have her in whatever capacity is worked out.”
Gomez makes his first appearance in Supergirl, season two, episode two.
