Lonnie Chavis Joins the Cast of “Supergirl”

TVline.com reports that Lonnie Chavis, the young actor who has appeared on the TV series “This is Us”, will feature in an upcoming episode of “Supergirl”.

Chavis will play the role of a young alien boy called Marcus, who befriends James Olsen after the boy’s mother attacks National City.

Titled “City of Lost Children”, the episode will focus heavily on James Olsen and the challenges he faces as The Guardian, and will air on The CW on May 8.

“There’s a lovely moment that I have with Mehcad, about accepting who you are,” shares David Harewood, who plays DEO boss man Hank Henshaw aka “Martian Manhunter” J’onn J’onzz. “James is reluctant to step in and help somebody, and I persuade him, as a hero, that sometimes you have to go against your own instincts and do something that’s right, as opposed to what you think might be right.”

In success, might National City’s Guardian eventually suit up for Hank & Co.? “I really want to see James in the DEO,” Harewood says. “Winn has been a real find in the DEO, so maybe one day we can get James in there, as well.”
