Mission: Impossible and Revenge star Henry Czerny will be joining the cast of Supergirl in the guest star role of “Winslow Schott,” better known to comic book fans as the Toyman, ComicBook.com has learned from Warner Bros. Television.
At this time, Czerny is only booked for one episode.
In the comics, the character has gone through a number of iterations over the years, with a latter day version written by DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns which aimed to bring all the various takes into line. In Supergirl Warner Bros. says, "Winslow Schott, Sr. is a classic D.C. supervillain, a mad criminal genius known as Toyman – and Winn’s estranged father. Toyman weaponizes toys to wreak destruction and revenge but is ultimately driven by one thing – the obsessive desire to reunite with his beloved son."
Supergirl premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. No official word yet on which episode will feature Czerny's Toyman, but you can meet his son Winn for the first time during tonight's broadcast.
