September 16, 2016: Dichen Lachman Cast as Roulette for “Supergirl”

160916-dichenlachmanDichen Lachman, best known for playing Anya on the TV series “The 100”, has been cast in the role of Roulette, a supervillain who operates a metahuman fight club, for Season 2 of “Supergirl”.

Created in 2001 by Geoff Johns and Rags Morales, Roulette is primarily known as a villain to the Justice Society of America, who will be appearing on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on The CW but not, as far as we know, on Supergirl this season.

Veronica Sinclair runs a gambling establishment for super-villains where they can bet on events such as captive superhero death-matches. She generally manages to make superheroes work for her by using chips that essentially hypnotize or program them into compliance. The controls are apparently auditory in nature, as they failed to control a number of former Justice League International members after Fire – whose native tongue is Portugese – was not taken under by them and managed to de-program the rest of the team.
