Dean Cain And Helen Slater’s Secret Supergirl Roles Revealed?

13 March 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Late last month, former Superman and Supergirl Dean Cain and Helen Slater (from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and 1984’s Supergirl, respectively) joined the cast of CBS’ upcoming Supergirl series in top secret guest roles. Now, courtesy of Kryptonsite, their parts in the show may have been revealed.

The site has noticed that Cain and Slater are now listed as Fred and Sylvia Danvers, the foster parents of the titular Kryptonian, Kara Zor-El, on iMDB. Due to the fact that iMDB is reliably unreliable and can often come with casting lists made by fans, this news should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if you look at some casting history for old DC television shows, these roles certainly make sense.

The Flash on the CW (which shares executive producers with Supergirl) currently stars former scarlet speedster John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen’s father. Smallville, meanwhile, »

Helen Slater, Dean Cain Join CBS' "Supergirl"

28 February 2015 9:42 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two former superbeings are set to join the cast of CBS' upcoming "Supergirl" TV series - Dean Cain and Helen Slater. TV Line reports that the pair will guest star on the series, but their roles are being kept secret for now.

Cain played Clark Kent/Superman in the 1990s TV series "Lois and Clark," while Slater played Supergirl herself in the 1984 feature film alongside Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole.

Both Cain and Slater previously guest starred on another Superman-related series, The CW's "Smallville," which also saw Cain's former co-star Teri Hatcher and big screen Superman Christopher Reeve in guest starring roles.

Indeed, the precedent is becoming quite common these days. The CW's "The Flash" using the original 1990s TV series star John Wesley Shipp in the role of Barry Allen's father in the current incarnation. »

‘Supergirl’ Meets Supergirl As Slater Swoops In

28 February 2015 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hot on the heels of Calista Flockhart’s casting, CBS have announced another powerful female presence for the line up of their Supergirl TV series. Helen Slater, star of the 1984 movie of the same name, is taking what’s described as a “top-secret” role.

Also signing up is former Lois & Clark star Dean Cain, who needs no introduction to fans of the Kryptonian franchise. He was of course Clark Kent with Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. Slater and Cain guest-starred on previous small screen saga Smallville, so it’s looking like the new show will be tipping the wink to incarnations past.

The main cast is toplined by Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, with Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Flockhart as Cat Grant and sees the action revolve around a media empire, presumably along the lines of The Daily Planet in Superman.

British actor David Harewood recently joined the line up. »

27 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

A former Superman and Supergirl has joined the new CBS incarnation of the Girl of Steel! TVLine broke the big (and possibly biggest geek worthy) news for Supergirl earlier today, revealing that Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’s Dean Cain and Supergirl The Movie’s Helen Slater have joined the project in two secret roles. Cain is known for his terrific potrayal of Clark Kent a.k.a. Superman on the Lois & Clark series back in 1993 that ran for four seasons on ABC (the series also starred Desperate HousewivesTeri Hatcher as Lois Lane). He also appeared in an episode of the Superman prequel series Smallville as Dr. Curtis Knox (an adapation of the DC villain Vandal Savage) in Season 7. Slater is known for her great portryal in the sadly not-so-well-received Supergirl movie back in 1984, which starred big names such as Peter O’Toole and Mia Farrow. Like Cain, »

Teri Hatcher and Daughter Emerson Raise Funds for Education

19 February 2015 1:45 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Teri Hatcher and her daughter have always loved taking road trips together, so when Emerson turned 17, she and mom hit the road in search of the perfect college for her to attend. "Last summer, we decided with the upcoming excitement of going off to college herself, we would do a trip across the country looking at colleges," says the Desperate Housewives actress, 50. But Emerson also wanted to give back to her community while traveling, so she started a blog (reachandsafe.com) to raise money for the Fulfillment Fund, an organization that offers mentoring, help with college applications and more for underprivileged students. »

Planes: Fire & Rescue Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 2:36 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Planes: Fire & Rescue, much like the Cars sequel, spins us into an entirely new world, and though the Cars franchise sequels haven’t been quite the blockbusters Pixar might have hoped for, this broader sequel theory has made them both far better films than simpler “add-on” efforts might have managed.

Dusty finds himself out of the racing game, and quickly joins with a crew of rescue vehicles who keep an eye on a vast forest in order to contain fires. Naturally, this isn’t something that sounds like a great time to Dusty at first, but he learns that there’s a lot more to life than being in the spotlight.

This all kicks off because Dusty continually pushes himself too far, damaging a part that can’t be replaced. In a fairly obvious maneuver, he ends up crashing, and causing a fire. This leads to the airport being shut down, »

You keep me hangin' on: In The Flesh and more unresolved TV cliffhangers

28 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It was recently announced BBC Three won't be renewing its respected zombie drama In the Flesh, which means it has the misfortune of ending on an unresolved cliffhanger.

This is one of the most frustrating occurrences for TV fans, akin to reading a gripping novel that's missing its ending.

Sadly, In the Flesh isn't the first television show to leave the airwaves with unfinished business. Below are a sampling of dramas that were cancelled, leaving their loyal fans with unanswered questions to ponder.

BBC Three controller on In The Flesh axe: 'I want the freshest ideas'

1. Quantum Leap

This sci-fi classic about a time-traveller 'leaping' into people's bodies from the past to 'put right what once went wrong' in their lives, managed to last just shy of a hundred episodes.

CBS chairman talks Supergirl TV series

13 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s been a lot of DC news coming out of the Television Critics Association press tour this week – including news that Arrow and The Flash have been renewed, a spin-off centred on The Atom could be in the works, and a Vixen animated series is on the horizon. Now we have some details about CBS’ upcoming Supergirl series, with CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler offering up some details on the project to EW.

“There will be [crime] cases, but what [executive producers] Ali Adler and Greg Berlanti pitched was a real series arc for her,” said Tassler, when asked if the show would be a crime procedural. “The beauty of it is now with shows like Good Wife and Madam Secretary, you can have serialized story elements woven into a case of the week. She’s a crime solver, so she’s going to have to solve a crime. She’s going to get a bad guy. »

CBS Chairperson Says Supergirl Has An Awesome Costume

13 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every Television Critics Association press tour generates a wealth of information and announcements about all kinds of projects – and the current event is no exception. What is perhaps different this time is the number of highly anticipated shows that are currently in development, and that we are gradually hearing more about. Supergirl is one such show.

From the makers of Arrow and The Flash – but this time headed for parent network CBS, instead of The CW – Supergirl has a 13 episode series commitment and is an adaptation of the comic book character that is Superman’s cousin. Answering questions at the TCA event, CBS Chairperson Nina Tassler gave the most detailed update of the project yet.

Firstly, audiences have long associated CBS with crime procedural dramas, and Supergirl will be no exception. But, her crime-fighting role will not detract from a solid character arc that is set to play out over the course of the series. »

'Supergirl': CBS Shoots Down 'Flash' & 'Arrow' Crossover

12 January 2015 11:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a report surfaced that Supergirl co-creator/executive producer Greg Berlanti's deal with CBS allowed for the show to crossover with his other DC Comics series, The CW's Arrow and The Flash. Even though CBS and CW are much different networks, the crossover is plausible, since CBS owns half of The CW along with Time Warner. However, during CBS' TCA Winter Tour presentation, network chairman Nina Tassler shot down reports of a potential crossover between Supergirl and The CW's Arrow and The Flash.

"That's a different network so I think we're going to keep Supergirl to ourself right now."

When asked about what drew her to the pitch from Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, Nina Tassler had this to say.

We fell in love with the pitch. She's a great character. I love the superhero genre....There is a human drama there. I think we're watching an evolution »
