CBS' 'Supergirl' Adding Jimmy Olsen And More

We learned yesterday that the upcoming superheroine series on CBS, Supergirl, would focus on her life with the Danvers family and would exist in a world without Superman. Now from TVLine, we understand the series is casting further Metropolis regulars:

CAT GRANT | The project is eyeing females in their 40s, open ethnicity, to play the fonder of CatCo, a media conglomerate that Cat built from the ground up. Kara (Supergirl’s mild-mannered alter ego) will work as a personal assistant to Cat, who is described as “J.Lo by way of Anna Wintour.”
JAMES OLSEN | In his late 20s/early 30s, open ethnicity, James is a smart, worldly and (duh) attractive photographer for CatCo. Though an alpha male, his salt of the earth nature elicits a huge ol’ crush from Kara.
WINSLOW ‘WYNN’ SCHOTT | This twenty-something tech whiz/Comic-Con stalwart toils for CatCo as a programmer, unaware of his own potential. Wholly unaware of her secret, he carries a torch for Kara, whom he lives next door to.
HANK HENSHAW | As an upstart CIA agent, Hank grew obsessed with intergalactic intel. Now in his 40s and lording over the DEO (Department of Extra-Normal Operations), he is on high alert when Supergirl reveals herself, worried that her otherworldly abilities pose a threat to humankind.
The latter two eventually become the villains Toyman and Cyborg Superman respectively in Superman canon, though it'll be interesting to see how they're handled here.
