Cougar Town alum Ian Gomez has been tapped to recur on the new season of Supergirl as DC Comics character Snapper Carr, EW has learned exclusively.

On Supergirl, Snapper Carr is a headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. Snapper’s commitment to hard-hitting journalism pushes CatCo reporters to dig deeper in the pursuit of excellence. He’s a man who tells people what he thinks of them, and his no-holds barred approach pushes Kara (Melissa Benoist) in unexpected ways. (In the comics, Snapper Carr was a supporting civilian Justice League character.)

Gomez, whose credits also include The Real O’Neals and Felicity, will first appear in the second episode of season 2. He joins the previously cast Lynda Carter, who will play the president of the United States, and Tyler Hoechlin, who will play Clark Kent, a.k.a Superman.

Supergirl will return Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. In the meantime, get scoop on season 2 here.
