President Marsdin has a new right hand man.
Brent Spiner, who portrayed Commander Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation, has joined the cast of Supergirl for Season 4. He will recur on the CW drama as Vice President Baker, a character described as both adept and politically minded. Baker proves himself to be an "unlikely leader [who] steps up in a big way when his country needs him most."
Spiner joins a long list of newcomers this Fall that includes Sam Witwer as Agent Liberty, April Parker Jones as Colonel Haley, Nicole Maines as Nia Nal, Rhona Mitra as Mercy Graves, and David Ajala recurring as classic DC Comics character Manchester Black.
Lynda Carter will also be returning as President Olivia Marsdin.
This will not be Spiner's first foray into the DC Universe. He previously voiced The Joker on the hit Cartoon Network series Young Justice during its first season.
Supergirl kicks off its fourth season on Sunday, October 14th.
