View Comments Laura Benanti Star Files It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…Jeremy Jordan and Laura Benanti! The Broadway faves both make appearances in the trailer for Supergirl, CBS’ new series which follows the Man of Steel’s cousin, Kara Zor-El (played by Glee’s Melissa Benoist). Jordan plays Kara’s friend Winn Schott who assists her in harnessing her super powers, and Benanti takes on the role of Alura (eerily close to Laura) Zor-El, Kara’s mother on Krypton. Take a look below, and catch Supergirl on CBS later this fall.
