Once Upon A Time’s Peter Gadiot Cast to Make Mischief for “Supergirl!”

By  | 

Peter Gadiot made magic on the short lived (and better in my opinion) show Once Upon A Time in Wonderland. Now, he will make some trouble for Supergirl.

Gadiot has been cast for two episodes as the long time Superman villain, Mister Mxyzptlk. The villain from the fifth dimension has powers that seem like magic to people from the third dimension. His only apparent weakness is if he speaks his own name backwards. Needless to say, it’s going to be an interesting new challenge for Supergirl.

Heroic Hollywood gives some television background on Mister Mxyzptlk:

In the comics, the character is a fifth-dimensional imp who is part of Superman’s Rogues gallery and has been portrayed on television before, both in animation and live-action. His most well-known appearance was in Superman: The Animated Series, voiced by Gilbert Gottfried. In his live-action appearances, he appeared in two episodes of Superboy, played by Michael J. Pollard.

He also appeared in one episode of Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman where Howie Mandel guest-starred as the character. His recent live-action appearance was in the WB/CW series, Smallville, where Clark Kent encountered a student by the name Mikhail Mxyzptlk (played by Trent Ford) who had the ability to affect anyone that would hear his words.

Supergirl returns from hiatus on January 23rd at 8/7c.
