Luke Wilson Joins Cast Of DC Universe Series ‘Stargirl’

DC Universe series ‘Stargirl’ has casted Luke Wilson to portray mechanic-turned-superhero Pat Dugan, who pilots his own hulking 15-foot robot named Stripe.

The show’s official description of Wilson’s character:

“Pat Dugan once went by the less-than-inspired superhero name of Stripesy, sidekick to a young hero known as the Star-Spangled-Kid and later Starman of the legendary Justice Society of America. Today, Pat has left his sidekick life behind him. But when his new step-daughter, Courtney Whitmore, discovers Pat’s secret past and takes on Starman’s legacy to become Stargirl, Pat is forced to come out of retirement and once again become a sidekick — to his step-daughter — this time piloting a 15-foot robot called Stripe.”

When it came to the casting, Geoff Johns described it as such:

“When I first moved to Los Angeles in 1996 and saw Bottle Rocket, I became a huge fan and admirer of Luke’s,” Johns said “And I literally wrote this part for Luke, hoping that someday and somehow he’d play Pat Dugan. I only envisioned him. And now I feel like I won the lottery! Luke’s talent, humor, compassion — his presence and professionalism — and his creative collaboration, his ideas — we’re so lucky to have him alongside Brec in Stargirl.”

Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Melissa Carter are executive producers of Stargirl. Stargirl is based on the DC character created by Johns. Johns is writing the first episode and will serve as showrunner. No official release date has been announced. However, it is expected to start airing in August this year.
