Itâ€™s very super.
Former televisionâ€™s Superman, Dean Cain, and former movieâ€™s Supergirl, Helen Slater, will join CBSâ€™ television show â€œSupergirl.â€
The veteran actors are cast in top-secret roles, according to Variety.
Slater once played Kara/Supergirl in the 1984 movie â€œSupergirl.â€ The new television showâ€™s Supergirl will be played by Melissa Benoist. Cain did play Superman/Clark Kent for several seasons in ABCâ€™s â€œLois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.â€
It will not be the first time for both actors to play different characters in a superhero-related project. Both guest-starred in â€œSmallvilleâ€ with Slater as Clarkâ€™s birth mother Lara and Cain playing Dr. Curtis Knox.
They will join a wonderful cast that already includes Laura Benanti, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Calista Flockhart and Mechad Brooks.
