The last of the series regulars have been cast for the upcoming DC Universe series ‘Stargirl.’
The four actors are:
- Amy Smart (‘Crank,’ ‘MacGyver’)
- Neil Jackson (‘Nocturnal Animals,’ ‘Westworld’)
- Hunter Sansone (‘Drama Drama,’ ‘Unfollowed’)
- Trae Romano (‘555,’ ‘Robbie’)
Smart will play Barbara Whitmore, the mother of Courtney Whitmore, better known as Stargirl. Now that her teenage daughter Courtney (Brec Bassinger) is older, Barbara is jumping back into the workforce and striving to be the best mother and provider she can be to her daughter, her new husband (Luke Wilson), and her new stepson (Romano).
Romano plays Mike Dugan, Pat’s overly-charming teenage son and Courtney’s new stepbrother.
Sansone and Jackson will be playing undisclosed DC characters.
Moreover, the premise of the series:
“Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines the very first superhero team in comics, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.”
Further, the series is based on the DC character created by Geoff Johns. Also, Johns is writing the first episode and will serve as showrunner.
There is no precise premiere date yet. However, the plan is for the show to begin airing this August.
