Kate Micucci Joins Season 5 Premiere

Less than two months to go until Supergirl returns to our lives with brand new episodes! We couldn't be more excited! With Julie Gonzalo joining the show as a series-regular playing Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata), and Staz Nair coming aboard as another series regular playing the show-created role of William Dey, we weren't sure what other new faces we might see. Announced on this afternoon, we've learned now that Kate Micucci from The Big Bang Theory, Another Period, and the band Garfunkel and Oates will make her debut in National City in the show's season 5 premiere. The role isn't a big one, just a cameo, but Executive Producer Jessica Queller had this to say about Micucci:

She’s amazing and so sparkly and hysterical. Really exciting having her on set. [Micucci] has a small cameo as a character working in a museum.

This sounds like a lot of fun. We actually like and would encourage more cameos in the show rather than more full time characters. That said, it sounds like season 5 has found their balance and stride and we can't wait until October!

On the Big Bang Theory, she played a gal that Raj went out with a few times. The character had severe social anxiety. I believe her plight was supposed to be played for laughs, but it was really kind of painful to watch. Not Kate Micucci's fault; she probably did exactly what they asked of her.

I have no clue who this is...

Since it's just a cameo, this seems like something that might have been better as a surprise, announced after the fact, rather than 2 months in advance.
"What the huh? Was that Kate Micucci?" vs. "That's it? She was barely in it!"

One of my favorite Kate Micucci roles:

I am fine with all these new faces and I agree that more new faces are fine as long as they remain cameo appearances and not series regulars - more series regulars only leads to trying to fit too many plots into the episode accompanied by rushed scenes.
