Sam Witwer Joins Supergirl As A Series Regular

With set pictures leaking out it was only a matter of time before this was confirmed, and indeed it has been as Entertainment Weekly are reporting that the Smaville alum will be on Supergirl next season.

Sam Witwer has been cast in a series regular role as Agent Liberty. In the show’s interpretation on the character, Agent Liberty is the ruthless and terrifying founder and figurehead of Children of Liberty, a hate group that supports a human-first world order. According to a description from the show’s producers, he’s “a brilliant orator in the guise of a family man” and the scariest thing about him is how easily he can convince people that he’s right. Given that Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO tend to be pro-alien integration, it’s definitely fair to assume they won’t get along with Agent Liberty and his Children of Liberty.

He follows in the footsteps of fellow Smallville alums Erica Durance and Laura Vandervoort who have both featured on Supergirl.
