Supergirl TV Series Casts Red Tornado/Dr T.O. Morrow

CBS’s Supergirl series has found an actor to fill the role of DC’s android superhero Red Tornado. And one to fill the role of Red Tornado’s creator Dr TO Morrow. And they’re both the same actor.


According to, Iddo Goldberg (Salem, Peaky Blinders) has been cast in both roles. Not that official press bumpf for the show reveals quite how he’s going to be portraying them both. On the show, apparently, Red Tornado will be the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist Dr TO Morrow for the US Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City – including the people Supergirl cares about most.

In the comics Dr TO Morrow and Red Tornado, despite one having created the other, are definitely to very different characters (TO Morrow is a villain, Red Tornado is a hero). You have to assume in the show he has a bit of a God complex and wants his creation made in his own image. Or maybe not.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist in the title role, alongside Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw and Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord. Dean Cain (from Lois And Clark) and Helen Slater (the movie Supergirl) will also be appearing in as-yet undisclosed roles. No UK broadcaster has yet been announced.
