Coming quickly after the news that Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse, Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD, The 100) has nabbed a role in Netflix’s prestigious adaptation of Altered Carbon (see here), we hear that the actress has now also been cast in Supergirl as the villain Roulette. [via ComicBook.com]
On the show, Roulette is a supervillain who operates a metahuman fight club. “Based on the classic DC Comics character, Roulette runs an underground alien fight club in National City and she is eager to get Supergirl in the ring,” says Lachman’s official character description from the network.
The character originally appeared in JSA Secret Files #2 (2001) created by Geoff Johns.
Lachman joins an impressive list of special guest for Supergirl season two including Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, Ian Gomez as Kara’s new supervisor, Snapper Carr, Katie McGrath (Merlin) as Lena Luthor, Floriana Lima as Science Crimes captain Maggie Sawyer, Chris Wood as Mon-El (aka, the mystery pod’s passenger) and Frederick Schmidt as John Corben, aka Metallo.
Supergirl season two premieres in the UK on Sky1 on 24 October.
