“Transporter: The Series” actor Chris Vance will star on the upcoming TV series “Supergirl” as DC Comic villain Non.
On the CBS series, Non is depicted as a former scientist in a league with the House of El, said The Hollywood Reporter.
He is described as a brutal Kryptonian military officer who is sinister, powerful and angry. An antithesis of all things Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) stands for, Non will quickly become Supergirl’s greatest threat.
The character takes a slightly different direction from the comic book’s version.
Vance, 43, will first appear in episode eight of the first season. He joins Chris Browning, Owain Yeoman and Iddo Goldberg who were previously tapped to play the villainous Reactron, Vartox and Red Tornado respectively.
Also in the cast of the new series are Chyler Leigh as Kara’s foster sister Alex Danvers, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, Calista Flockhart as Kara’s boss Cat Grant, Laura Benanti as her birth mother Alura Zor-El, Mehcad Brooks as Kara’s love interest Jimmy Olsen, Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane and many others.
“Supergirl” launches on October 26.
