The Hollywood Reporter has word that Calista Flockhart has joined CBS’ SUPERGIRL in the role of Cat Grant. Flockhart is best known to most for being the other half of that Han Solo fella and for starring alongside a dancing baby (we bet you’d forgotten all about that) in a little show by the name of ALLY MCBEAL.

As for Cat Grant, in the show she will be the boss of CatCo, where a young Kara Danvers happens to be her personal assistant. A character straight from the DC comic book world, Grant debuted back in 1987’s ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #424, having been created by Marv Wolfman and Jerry Ordway.

Flockhart joins a cast that currently includes Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as a far too suave Jimmy Olsen, and Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, the titular heroine’s Kryptonian mother.
