Black Lightning has added two new cast members for their upcoming first season. James Remar (Dexter) will be joining the cast as Peter Gambi, Jefferson Pierce’s (Cress Williams) oldest friend and mentor. And Damn Gupton (Bates Motel) will be playing season lawman Inspector Henderson, who butts heads with the vigilante at first but then finds common ground.
Remar is known for playing Harry Morgan on Dexter and more recently was on the Shanara Chronicles and Gotham. Gupton played Norman Bates’ therapist Dr. Edwards on A&E’s Bates Motel. His other recent TV roles include Criminal Minds and Goliath.
Black Lightning is slated to debut at midseason on The CW.
