Super News: CBS’ SUPERGIRL Casts 24 Alum As General Sam Lane


Another member of the Lane family is coming to CBS’ SUPERGIRL.

24 actor Glenn Morshower has recently been cast as General Sam Lane, father of Lois and Lucy. He is set to make his first appearance after Lucy’s (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and will recur throughout the season. His arrival in National City will stir up trouble for Supergirl as he enlists her in a dangerous government initiative.
