Calista Flockhart Cast As Cat Grant In Supergirl Pilot

CalistaFlockhartFormer Ally McBeal and Brothers & Sisters star Calista Flockhart is returning to television and working once again with Greg Berlanti (Exec Producer on Brothers & Sisters). Flockhart has been cast as gossip columnist Cat Grant in the CBS pilot for Supergirl. In the series Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) works as a personal assistant to Grant who started her own company, CatCo.

Now with Grant plus the earlier casting of Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), this is felling less like Supergirl and more like a hybrid combining her with her cousin Superman.
