James Remar And Damon Gupton Join The Cast Of 'Black Lightning'

2017 San Diego Comic Con: Outsiders - 2017.07.22
The excitement surrounding The CWís latest addition to its DC Super Hero lineup was electrifying at Warner Bros. Televisionís Black Lightning Comic-Con 2017ģ panel Saturday, July 22, as fans learned that two new characters will enter the beleaguered community where local hero Jefferson Pierce secretly fights crime as masked vigilante Black Lightning. Executive producers Salim Akil & Mara Brock Akil announced at the session that James Remar and Damon Gupton will light up the screen as two new series regulars when Black Lightning premieres midseason on The CW. Fans were also charged up to view a special sneak peak of the upcoming series.

∑ James Remar (Dexter, Django Unchained, The Warriors) joins the cast as Peter Gambi, the oldest friend of Jefferson Pierce (series star Cress Williams). Gambi is Jeffersonís father figure, mentor and ďtailor.Ē His history with Jefferson goes back farther and deeper than anyone knows, and Gambiís role in Jeffersonís life will become a painful window into the past that will affect the future of their relationship forever.

∑ Damon Gupton (Bates Motel, Whiplash, La La Land) will play Inspector Henderson, a veteran officer of the law who is now the highest-ranking detective on the force. His role in the community puts him at odds with Black Lightning (Williams), but they soon become unlikely allies.

Based on the characters from DC, Black Lightning is from Berlanti Productions and Akil Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DCís Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Salim Akil & Mara Brock Akil (Being Mary Jane, The Game, Girlfriends) and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, DCís Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl). The Black Lightning character was created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden.
