Nick Zano (Minority Report) has been announced as a series regular on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 2.
Zano will be playing Dr. Nate Heywood, a historian whose grandfather was Commander Steel, a member of the Justice Society of America.
In the comics, Nate is a former college football star who shattered his knee and became addicted to painkillers. Later on, he was turned into a being made of “living steel” who didn’t want to be known as Commander Steel, so he’s referred to as Citizen Steel.
Zano is one of two new cast members CW is adding to the show. The other actor/character has yet to be revealed but I’ve heard that it might be Lady Blackhawk.
The composition of the team is going to change; there will be some new faces on the Waverider,” Legends co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim said last month. “The season finale planted some very significant flags in terms of what the new concept of the show will be in season 2. The team’s mission statement for Season 2 is more compelling than Season 1, and at the same time, it is more streamlined. It’s a little bit higher concept, a very clean notion that will allow the show to do things that it does best.”
