Variety reports that True Blood actress Brit Morgan has been cast as the villain Livewire for CBS's Supergirl. According to the Hollywood trade, Livewire (real name: Leslie Willis) will be an "confident, abrasive and funny" shock-jock who works at CatCo Media, just as Kara Danvers (a.k.a. Supergirl, played by Melissa Benoist) does. Morgan's character will have an accident according to the trade, making her as "dangerous and shocking" as her verbal skills are as a shock-jock.
If this casting is proven accurate, Brit Morgan will be the latest in a string of True Blood actors being brought into various TV shows based on DC Comics. Morgan also appeared recently on Graceland and even the short-lived comic-book-turned-TV-series The Middleman.
Supergirl premieres October 26 on CBS.
