DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Adds Nick Zano in Steel-y Hero Role

Nick Zano has always looked a little like a superhero — now it seems as though he’s going to play one on TV.

The Minority Report/One Big Happy star is joining Season 2 of  DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in the series-regular role of Dr. Nate Heywood, according to our sister site Deadline.

Heywood is “a historian whose grandfather was Commander Steel, a member of the Justice Society of America,” according to Deadline.

DC lore finds Nate assuming the mantle of the heroic figure Citizen Steel, though it’s unclear if that’s the direction Zano’s character will take. (But seriously, do we really envision Zano doing the Justice Society’s bookkeeping?)

Last week, Legends producers revealed that female hero Vixen will also be a series-regular character in the show’s sophomore season, though she won’t be played by Megalyn E.K., who portrayed the character on Arrow.
