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.
