"Supergirl" is ready to fly, and she's bringing some old pals with her. There's been a whole lot of casting announcements this week with regards to the upcoming CBS show, but the latest additions will give you all sorts of nostalgia feels.
According to Deadline, "Supergirl" has added Dean Cain and Helen Slater as guest stars in "mystery roles." If you know your DC history, you'll remember that Cain played Superman in "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman," and Slater starred in "Supergirl" in 1984. Melissa Benoist will be starring as Kara Zor-El in the TV show, alongside Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Calista Flockhart as Kara's boss Cat Grant, Laura Benanti as Kara's mom, Chyler Leigh as Kara's foster sis Alexandra, and David Harewood as baddie Hank Henshaw.
Severalsites have posted casting calls for body doubles for a TV pilot that sounds awfully like "Supergirl." The posts indicate filming will begin in March.
