I always thought Jimmy Olsen was supposed to be a mild-mannered guy, relying on Superman for help and always idolizing “Mister Kent” to an almost pathological degree. Mehcad Brooks, who has just been cast in the role for TV’s Supergirl, looks like he already is a comic-book hero.
I mean, we don’t know how he’ll play it yet. Maybe those abs are masters of disguise. But this is certainly different.
