Justice Leak Joins SUPERGIRL Cast as Hellgrammite

Some Supergirl casting news to close out your week and this is frankly one of the most appropriately named actors in a long, long time.  Justice Leak, best known for his role in the film The Great Debaters has been cast as Hellgrammite.

Hailing from Montgomery, Alabama, Peak is the son of a police officer.  His father had decided on the name while serving in Vietnam and vowed to do so if he survived his tour of duty.  Peak hit the screen in 2004 with a role in the horror movie, Jack O'Lantern.  From there he had parts in film such as; Chosen, Death of Seasons and in 2007 he co-starred with Denzel Washington in the biopic, The Great Debaters.  More recently, Peak has appeared more on television than films including; Drop Dead Diva, The Breakup Diaries and The Walking Dead.  In addition to his role on Supergirl, Peak will have a recurring role as "Cutter" on the series Powers.  (imdb)

Hellgrammite was created by Bob Haney and Neal Adams and first appeared in The Brave and the Bold issue #80.  Entomologist Roderick Rose experimented on himself and transformed into a grasshopper-like creature with enhanced strength, agility and other insectoid abilities.  Post-Crisis he became something of a foe for Superman when he was hired to kill Lex Luthor.  He was presumed dead during his time as a member of the Suicide Squad, but resurfaced as a hitman in Superman comics after the "One Year Later" event.  He has appeared on Justice League Unlimited in the episode "The Cat and the Canary" as well as the episode "Time Out for Vengeance" in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold cartoon.

According to imdb, Leak will appear in episode two, which is currently untitled.

Supergirl airs Monday Nights at 8E on CBS starting October 26th, 2015.
