Stargirl‘s Justice Society of America continues to grow!
EW has exclusively learned that The Haunting of Hill House‘s Henry Thomas has joined the DC Universe live action series in the recurring guest-star role of Golden Age Dr. Mid-Nite.
Also known as the introspective surgeon Dr. Charles McNider, Dr. Mid-Nite is a brilliant and forward-thinking medical pioneer, and a founding member of the JSA. With his trusty owl, he acts as the team’s resident doctor and detective.
If Dr. Mid-Nite’s costume looks remotely familiar, that’s because Kwesi Ameyaw played him on The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow when the JSA was introduced in season 2.
Thomas’ casting is only the latest in a recent string Golden Age additions to the show. Last week, it was announced that Community‘s Joel McHale will play Golden Age Starman/Sylvester Pemberton and S.W.A.T.‘s Lou Ferrigno Jr. was cast as Golden Age Hourman.
