General Lane is an important character in the DC universe, someone has to keep Lois Lane in check. On Smallville, Michael Ironside portrayed the character for three episodes. As the Kryptonians prepare to return to the small screen, Glenn Morshowe has been cast as General Sam Lane on CBS’s Supergirl, according to IGN.
Morshowe is most notable for his roles in the Transformers franchise, 24, X-Men: First Class, Star Trek, and The West Wing. Morshowe has been working in Hollywood since 1976 and has been cast as a military man more times than he can probably remember, but it could be this role that gets him the nerd love he deserves.
Supergirl will premire on October 26.
