The Salem actor has been cast in Supergirl as Dr. T.O. Morrow, better known to DC Comics fans as the creator of android Red Tornado, TVLine has confirmed.

Goldberg will not only play Morrow on the CBS series, but Red Tornado, as well. According to the official character description, “Red Tornado is the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.”

Interestingly, T.O. Morrow and Red Tornado are not the same person in the original comics, nor is Red Tornado a villain, as it seems he might be on the small-screen adaptation.

In addition to his role on WGN America’s Salem, Goldberg’s TV credits include Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Peaky Blinders, Mob City and Spike TV’s recent miniseries Tut.

ComicBook.com was first to report Goldberg’s casting. Supergirl takes off Monday, Oct. 26, at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
