Out from the ashes of NBC’s cancelled drama, Smash, comes the dashing Jeremy Jordan who has been just recently announced as another addition to CBS’ superhero drama, Supergirl.
Jordan has been cast as Winslow “Winn” Schott, a tech genius and superstar IT wunderkind who works alongside Kara at CatCo. To clarify, Jordan is only guest starring in the pilot with the potential of a recurring role when the series takes off.
Schott…Schott…Schott…where have we heard that name before? Ah yes! That’s the real name of DC Comics’ villain Toyman. He’s known for creating weapons out of toys to commit his dastardly crimes. He shows up primarily in the Superman comics, but I think we all remember him more vividly as the unsettling man-sized walking doll in Superman: The Animated Series, and beyond. Y’know, this guy:
Jordan is well-known for his work on Broadway. He played in Newsies, Bonnie & Clyde, West Side Story, and Rock of Ages. On television, he showed up as an aspiring Broadway writer on the second (and final) season of Smash. You can catch him currently on the big screen in the musical The Last Five Years.
