Christopher Showerman, best known for his role in the 2003 movie “George of the Jungle 2,” has joined the cast of the CBS TV series “Supergirl.” He will be playing the role of a character called Tor, who will be seen with the villain Non (Chris Vance).

The TV series will be returning on Jan. 4, 2016 with the ninth episode titled “Blood Bonds,” which is directed by Steve Shill. Showerman’s character will be featured in this episode and is believed to be a recurring character throughout the remainder of the season, according to a press release sent via email.

Showerman was previously a contender to play the role of Supergirl’s cousin about ten years ago in Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns.” The bodybuilder and actor has now managed to land a part in the female superhero show.

This will not be Showerman’s first project involving a comic book character. The actor played the role of the Caped Crusader in the 2015 short movie “Batman: Personal Issues.” He was also a part of “The Adventures of Captain Fantastic & Mega Mom” and some of his forthcoming projects include “Executive Protection,” “Blackwater,” “Just Plain Dead,” “Of Fortune and Gold,” “Liberty,” “Smoke Filled Lungs” and “Lady Bug.”

“Supergirl” is not the first CBS series that Showerman will be a part of. In 2006 he played the role of a character called Pete Nealy in the TV series “CSI: Miami.” Some of his other projects include “Big Game,” “Sea of Fear,” “Dead Country,” “Live Fast, Die Young” and “The Land That Time Forgot.”

Apart from his acting career, Showerman has also focussed on production. He has been a producer for projects like “Shooting for Home” and “Between the Sand and the Sky.” He played the dual role of writer and producer for the movie “Radio America.”

According to the synopsis of “Supergirl,” Non will capture Hank (David Harewood), which will lead to a tense standoff between the two sides. Meanwhile, Kara (Melissa Benoist) will continue to refute Cat’s (Calista Flockhart) allegations that she is Supergirl.
