The actor, who most recently starred in Transporter: The Series, will recur on CBS’ upcoming drama as the DC Comics baddie Non.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Supergirl‘s version of the adversary will be a former scientist-turned-Kryptonian military officer who is “sinister, powerful and angry.” The antithesis of everything Supergirl stands for, Non will soon become her greatest threat.
Jack O’Halloran famously played Non, as more of a dim brute, in 1980’s Superman II, opposite Christopher Reeve.
In addition to Transporter, Vance’s TV credits include Rizzoli & Isles, Dexter, Burn Notice and Prison Break.
