The CW has announced that Louis Ozawa Changchien will play The Hat in an upcoming episode of the “Supergirl” TV series.
This latest casting announcement indicates that the show will be adapting the famous “Action Comics #775” story titled “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way”.
This comes on the back of the news that Jessica Meraz (Major Crimes) has been cast in the role of villain Menagerie.
Like Menagerie, the Hat was recruited by Manchester Black to be part of his team known as “The Elite”. A young Japanese man who gains invulnerability and the ability to breathe fire as a result of being merged with a demon, the Hat’s hat serves as the primary conduit of his power.
Episode 13 of Season 4 will actually be titled “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way”.
Changchien can be seen in Amazon’s “Showtime’s Kidding” and will appear in the upcoming Netflix series “Another Life”.
