Supergirl has hired Cougar Town alum Ian Gomez as Snapper Carr in a recurring role for its second season, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The Hollywood trade describes Gomez's Carr as a "headstrong, sharp-witted newsman" hired by Cat Grant. In comic books, Snapper Carr was the unofficial civilian mascot of the original Justice League, and has been a reporter in several stories, including in the Justice League animated series. At one point, he also developed metahuman powers, and prior to the "New 52," had a relationship with the Cheetah.
EW does not specify in which episode Gomez will debut as Carr, nor in how many episodes he will appear.
Supergirl premieres October 10 on its new network, the CW.
