Deadline is reporting that Brent Spiner has signed up for a recurring role for the upcoming fourth season of superhero drama series Supergirl.
After Supergirl defeated Queen Rhea and her Daxamite army at the end of the second season, the third season focused on Kara Danvers having to battle against Kryptonian worldkiller known as Reign, who was also transported to Earth just before Krypton’s destruction. Living out her life as Samantha Arias, she remained unaware of her origins until her powers started to manifest, then becoming Supergirl’s biggest adversary. The fourth season will see Kara having to take on Agent Liberty.
Brent Spiner (whose credits include Star Trek: The Next Generation and Outcast) will be playing the role of Vice President Baker. Adept and politically minded, VP Baker makes for an unlikely leader, but steps up in a big way when his country needs him most.
The upcoming fourth season also stars Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jesse Rath, David Harewood, Katie McGrath, Jeremy Jordan, Sam Witwer, Nicole Maines, April Parker Jones, David Ajala, Rhona Mitra and Robert Baker.
