Jimmy could be Jimmy as pretty much any ethnicity, but being an "Alpha Male" makes him a completely different character.I kinda like it. Superman is already an established hero and Olsen is a Pulitzer prize photographer, at the top of his game. In comes Kara.
He's also playing a very different role here than in a Superman story, if I'm reading the hints in the trailers correctly. Sort of a liason between Superman and Supergirl. He's been in the superhero game for awhile (on the edges, obviously) and he's helping the new kid out. As opposed to being the helpless source of trouble for Superman.
The change was unnecessary since the comics already have Ron Troupe. He could have filled the same role.
