‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’: Nick Zano Joins As New Hero with Steel Pedigree

Amanda   jun 15, 2016   No Comments

Nick Zano is joining the cast of the CW’s superhero drama series DC’S Legends of Tomorrow as a new series regular for Season 2. He will play Dr. Nate Heywood, a historian whose grandfather was Commander Steel, a member of the Justice Society of America.

In the comics, Nate becomes Steel/Citizen Steel, a former member of the Justice League of America. The producers of the CW series are being ambiguous whether Nate will walk in his grandfather’s super heroic footsteps but, given the superhero nature of the show, that appears almost certain.

The original Steel comic book character Henry Heywood/Commander Steel was introduced back in 1978. He should not be confused with a better known DC character, John Henry Irons, who became a Superman-influenced character calling himself Steel after the famous Death of Superman storyline in the early 90s.

Following the original Commander Steel, the WWII-set Henry Heywood, the second Steel, his grandson Hank Heywood III, was introduced in 1984 as s a member of the Justice League who was eventually killed off. That led to Nate, the third Steel, introduced in 2007 and also a grandson of the original. In the comics, Nate is a former college football star who shattered his knee and became addicted to painkillers. Later on, he was turned into a being made of “living steel” who didn’t want to be known as Commander Steel, so he’s referred to as Citizen Steel.

In DC’s New 52 reboot back in 2011, the Heywood family were relegated to Earth 2, which was introduced in the second season of the CW’s The Flash, playing a big role in that season’s plotline.

Nate Heywood is one of two new series regular roles the WBTV-produced DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is adding for Season 2 after bidding farewell to Season 1 regular Ciara Renée in the finale, while another regular cast member, Wentworth Miller, will become recurring as he will appear on both The Flash and Legends next season. In Season 2, “the composition of the team is going to change; there will be some new faces on the Waverider,” Legends co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim said last month.

“The season finale planted some very significant flags in terms of what the new concept of the show will be in season 2. The team’s mission statement for Season 2 is more compelling than Season 1, and at the same time, it is more streamlined. It’s a little bit higher concept, a very clean notion that will allow the show to do things that it does best.”

Zano most recently starred on Fox’s sci-fi drama Minority Report. This marks his return to the CW where he had roles on Melrose Place and 90210. He is repped by UTA and manager John Carrabino.

Nick Zano is going to be a father!

The 38-year-old former What I Like About You actor and his girlfriend, actress Leah Renee, are expecting their first child together, Renee’s rep exclusively confirms to ET.

So far, the two have been low-key about their relationship, although Renee, 30, has confirmed she’s pregnant on social media.

“I am VERY pregnant, by a pool, in Vegas,” she tweeted last month, linking to an Instagram snap of her sporting a bikini and sunglasses.

In April, Zano sweetly Instagrammed a pic of the Grimm actress, calling her his “Woman Crush Wednesday.”

A visibly pregnant Renee and Zano were “very affectionate” toward each other during a dinner date at Laurel Tavern restaurant in Studio City, California, on Wednesday, an eyewitness tells ET.

“Nick and Leah were kissing and holding hands at one point,” the eyewitness notes. “It was just the two of them. They kept to themselves and seemed very happy together.”

The last public appearance the couple made together was in late January, when they attended the DEN Meditation Studio (see pictures) grand opening in Los Angeles. Renee wore a loose white top under a leather jacket, possibly covering up her growing baby bump.

This marks the first child for both Zano and Renee.

This marks his return to comedy following stints on One Big Happy, Happy Endings and 2 Broke Girls, Cougar Town and What I Like About You.

We have added some screen captures into the gallery, from a series of mock “telenovelas” (latino soap operas known for their melodramatic storylines and characters), produced in 2008 by Voto Latino to ensure that the Latino community’s voice was heard during the elections in that year. Nick portrayed “Whit”. Check them out:
