Dylan Walsh Joins Superman & Lois CW Series
According to Deadline, Dylan Walsh has joined the cast of the CW’s Superman & Lois as a series regular. Per the trade, the actor is set to play General Lane, the father of Lois and Lucy, who is described as “a no-nonsense Army general who’s determined to keep America, and the world, safe from all threats – from this world or beyond.”
Written by Helbing, the series will follow the story of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), the world’s most famous Super Hero, and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch’s), comic books’ most famous journalist as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. In Elseworlds, while Kara was visiting Clark and Lois at the Kent Farm, the couple revealed that Lois was pregnant with their first child.
Superman & Lois is created by The Flash executive producer Todd Helbing. It will be executive produced by DC TV universe creator Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns through their Berlanti Productions banner.
The drama was slated to film its pilot episode before it was suspended over the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, it will go straight into series production with 13 episodes slated for release.
Walsh is best known for his roles on FX’s Nip/Tuck and CBS/A&E’s Unforgettable. He previously appeared on the CW and WBTV in the series Life Sentence. Currently, he makes regular appearances on CBS’ Blue Bloods.
