Bruce Boxleitner has joined the cast of the CW’s Supergirl for its upcoming 4th season, in the recurring role of “Vice President Baker”. Brent Spiner, who was previously announced in the role, had to, unfortunately, depart the show to attend to a family issue that conflicted with the production dates.
In 1982, Boxleitner was cast as the title role in Disney’s cult film TRON which garnered him science fiction fans worldwide. However, it was in Boxleitner’s four-year run for CBS’s ‘Scarecrow and Mrs. King’, starring opposite Kate Jackson, which endeared him to fans everywhere and made him a household name. In 1994, Boxleitner joined the cast of the popular TV series Babylon 5 as John Sheridan, President of the Interstellar Alliance, a war hero-turned-diplomat at the helm of Earth Alliance Space Station in the year 2259. The show aired for five seasons
The producers shared this description for the “Vice President Baker.”: Adept and politically minded, Vice President Baker makes for an unlikely leader but steps up in a big way when his country needs him most. Supergirl’s fourth season premieres on Sunday (new night), October 14th at 8/7c on The CW.
