Faran Tahir, who has appeared on shows including The Blacklist, Dallas and How To Get Away With Murder in recent months, will be playing a role in the CBS Supergirl pilot that is now shooting.

FaranTahirKSiteTV has gotten official confirmation that Tahir will be appearing in the pilot as a character known as “The Commander.” He is described as “an alien military expert leading the forces aligned against Supergirl.”

The character is a guest star in the pilot with the potential to recur in the series.

We’re not sure if “The Commander” has another name; though with a hairstyle like that, we could speculate on a major Superman-universe character he could possibly be… though, it says “an alien military expert,” which, unless it’s a typo, means he is an alien who is also a military expert… or is he a military expert on aliens, which would fit that bald guy’s profile?

If you’ve been reading KSiteTV for a while, you know that this website originated from KryptonSite, a website that tracked The CW’s Smallville. We’re hoping to keep up with Supergirl in the same way, so if you haven’t visited the site lately, it’s still there at and on Twitter @KryptonSite.
