iZombie star Rahul Kohli is jumping from the Vertigo Universe to the DC Universe.
Entertainment Weekly has learned that Kohli, who plays medical examiner Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti on The CW zombie series, has joined the cast of the hit DC Entertainment drama Supergirl. Kohli will play Jack Spheer, a charismatic tech genius who has spent decades working on a medical innovation that will eradicate major illnesses and change the face of the world – if it works, that is.
Jack travels to National City to demonstrate this new technology to the press, which stirs up front page news as well as feelings in his old flame Lena Luthor.
In the pages of DC Comics, Jack Spheer was mutated into the villainous Biomax, who had the power of mind control. However, it is currently unknown if Kohli's character will follow a similar route on Supergirl.
“I’m so excited to be working on Supergirl starring as Jack Spheer,” Kohli says. “It’s given me the chance to continue my relationship with The CW as well as fulfill my goal of meeting a Kryptonian.”
Look for the iZombie star to make his Supergirl debut in the eighteenth episode of the season, which is entitled Ace Reporter. Supergirl airs Mondays at 8pm.
