The cast of CBS’s Supergirl is really growing! Last week we learned that two regulars had been cast, and that Dean Cain and Helen Slater would make appearances in the show, and today we learn that Jeremy Jordan may be the villain Toyman.
As reported on The Wrap, Jeremy Jordon (The Last Five Years) has been cast as Winslow “Winn” Schott, a tech genius who works with Kara at Cat Grant’s CatCo. Though he is only set to appear in the pilot episode, those in the know, recognize Winslow Schott by another name…
The Toyman uses toy-based or toy-themed devices and gimmicks in his various crimes. The Toyman’s weapons, while sometimes comical, are also very dangerous. The Toyman’s creations include devices such as life-sized wind-up tanks, acid-spraying water pistols, and toy soldiers that carry real guns. The Toyman usually dresses in a flamboyant costume.
This is not the first time Toyman has appeared on television. The character has appeared in the Adventures of Superman, Superboy, the New Adventures of Lois and Clark, and Smallville. My favorite take on Toyman was in the Superman: The Animated Series from the ’90s, as his fake head and ’50s style of dress was really terrifying.
