Last week, we reported that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals star Claire Holt is one of several actresses who tested for the title role of CBS' Supergirl. However, The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that the actress isn't expected to win the role. It still isn't known what other actresses are currently reading to play Kara Zor-El.
The project already has a series commitment from CBS, which was issued just a few weeks after the project was first announced back in September. The story will center on a 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, who has been living on Earth for several years after escaping just before her home planet of Krypton was destroyed. While she has refused to use her incredible powers throughout her life, Kara decides to embrace her gifts and become the hero she was always destined to be. Last month we reported that series co-creator Greg Berlanti and »

There’s been some big casting news this week, and we’ll start things off with Warner Bros.’ 2016 supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad. Just days after Jared Leto stated that he’d “sworn to keep my mouth shut” over talk linking him to The Joker, the Oscar-winner was officially announced as taking on the role of the Clown Prince of Crime in the David Ayer-directed film. Leto will be joined in the cast by Tom Hardy (The Drop) as Rick Flagg, »

According to The Wrap, the producers for the upcoming CBS television series Supergirl, based on the DC Comics character, are looking at another primetime drama for their lead. Amongst the actresses being considered for the role is Claire Holt, known for her work on the CW's Vampire Diaries as well as its spinoff The Originals.
The Wrap is quick to point out that the actress is merely one of several testing for the part. Honestly, she looks like a long shot if you ask me. She's just too busy, considering she's also set to co-star in the NBC Charles Manson series Aquarius.

No other actresses who are reading for the role have been identified, and it isn't known how long casting has been under way.

The show was first announced back in September, with CBS issuing a series commitment just a few weeks later. The story will center on Kara Zor-El, a 24-year-old who was born on Krypton but escaped to Earth just after her home planet was destroyed. She has been hiding in plain sight on Earth, refusing to use her incredible powers, when she eventually decides to embrace her abilities. It still isn't »

More details about CBS' upcoming "Supergirl" TV series have arrived, and it looks as if some major characters from the "Superman" franchise are set to be involved.
TV Line has scored a casting breakdown detailing four supporting characters who will all be series regulars in the show, and quite a few of these names you will be familiar with from the comics or screen adaptations of Superman such as "Smallville" and "Lois and Clark":
Cat Grant - A 40-something woman of any ethnicity who created a media conglomerate called CatCo. Kara is working as a personal assistant to her.
Jimmy Olsen - A photographer for CatCo. This version isn't a geek, rather a smart, worldly and attractive alpha male whom Kara crushes on.
Winslow 'Wynn' Schott - A twenty something tech genius and Kara's neighbour. He works as a programmer for CatCo, and has a crush on Kara.

We reported yesterday that producers of the upcoming CBS series Supergirl are currently casting the title character, Kara Zor-el a.k.a. Kara Danvers, and a character created specifically for this program, Kara's foster sister Alex. Today, we have more character breakdowns from TV Line, all of whom originate in the comic books, Cat Grant, Jimmy Olsen, Winslow "Wynn" Schott, a.k.a. Toyman and Hank Henshaw, a.k.a. Cyborg Superman. Take a look at the character details below.
The project is eyeing females in their 40s, open ethnicity, to play the founder of CatCo, a media conglomerate that Cat built from the ground up. Kara (Supergirl's mild-mannered alter ego) will work as a personal assistant to Cat, who is described as "J.Lo by way of Anna Wintour."

We’re still about a year away from the premiere of CBS’s Supergirl, from Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler (Chuck, No Ordinary Family), and although we don’t have any actual casting news to report for Supergirl, we now have a better idea of which characters will be appearing on the series and what the show’s producers are looking for. This information comes from TVLine, which has exclusive reported the details regarding Kara Danvers, aka Kara Zor-El and other characters on the show. Most interesting from their reports is that Supergirl is looking to cast both Jimmy Olson and Cat Grant as series regular roles. Per TVLine, these are all the Supergirl casting requirements and character descriptions: Kara Danvers: Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series’ mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she… »

On the heels of sharing details about the casting for Supergirl‘s titular heroine and her foster sister, TVLine now has the scoop on four other series-regular roles to be filled on the drama, which already has a series commitment from CBS.

Ever since the Supergirl TV series was first reported last month, the project has sped through development, with CBS picking up the show in mid-September. Casting is currently under way for the title character, Kara Zor-El, along with a character created specifically for the series, Kara's foster sister.
TV Line has acquired a casting breakdown for the series, which confirms plot details that were released last month. Much like in the DC Comics, Kara Zor-El will be sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth at the tender age of 12, where she is taken in by the Danvers family.
Her new family warns her early on about using her powers, which causes Kara Danvers to repress her gifts until the age of 24, when she suddenly puts her powers on display during an "unexpected disaster." For the first time in her life, she begins using her abilities to help »
As you might have noticed, superheroes are all the rage at the moment, and the enthusiasm extends well beyond the multiplex. There are a number of comic book-sourced shows on television right now, and CBS is hoping to get in on the fun with a Supergirl TV show. Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti and No Ordinary Family alum Ali Adler are spearheading the pilot, and a new casting breakdown has revealed what their take on Supergirl entails—assuming CBS orders the show to series, that is. More on the show’s two major characters after the jump. Casting is now underway for the Supergirl pilot, and per TV Line, there are two lead roles that they’re looking for first: Kara Zor-El, aka Kara Danvers, and Alexandra “Alex” Danvers. For the role of Kara, aka Supergirl, producers are looking at Caucasian females ages 22 to 26 to play 24. Here’s how they »

The Supergirl TV show which recently landed at CBS is beginning to take shape. The high-profile DC Comics adaptation comes from the minds of Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti and No Ordinary Family alum Ali Adler; a new casting breakdown reveals what their vision of Supergirl will look like if we get to watch it beyond a pilot episode.

Casting is now underway — courtesy of the same folks who populated Arrow and The Flash — for CBS’ Supergirl series, and TVLine has details on exactly what (and who) the DC Comics-based drama is looking for in two of its lead roles.
For Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers, the show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series’ mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers.

We recently found out that a Supergirl television series had landed a series commitment at CBS, and that it would be coming from Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family). Now it seems that, despite being on a different network to those other 2 DC superhero shows, Berlanti has once again turned to casting director David Rapaport to find our new small-screen Kara Zor-El and her supporting characters, whoever they may wind up being. pic.twitter.com/t8woOBbypr — DavidRapaportCasting (@RapaportCasting) October 29, 2014 Despite Rapaport casting all three shows, it's not expected that Supergirl will be a part of the same TV universe as Arrow and The Flash (though some crossover might be a possibility), but fans seem to have taken to Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin in their roles so young Kara would appear to be in good hands at least. Here's a brief synopsis for the show. »
Last month, it was announced that a Supergirl television show had landed a series commitment at CBS, and that it would be coming from Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti and his frequent collaborator, Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family). Now, we’ve learned that the producer is not the only thing that Supergirl will share with the likes of CW’s two super shows. David Rapaport, the casting director who found Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin for Arrow and The Flash, respectively, will also find our Kara Zor-El.
It’s not at all surprising that Berlanti would once again turn to Rapaport to find the star for his latest DC Comics adaptation. Amell and Gustin are widely revered as excellent choices for their title roles, and are surrounded by a pretty unique and well-balanced cast of supporting characters as well. So, it’s likely that Rapaport will find similar luck with Supergirl. »

Among many other things, it looks like we’re in for a slew of wackily enjoyable, anachronistic musical numbers this fall on American Horror Story: Freak Show. In last week’s premiere, Jessica Lange delivered a gutsy rendition of David Bowie’s Life on Mars, and in tonight’s “Massacres and Matinees,” Sarah Paulson completely slays Fiona Apple’s Criminal, brandishing a set of singing chops that immediately makes Dot (in a delicious twist, one sister has a gorgeous voice while the other does not) Elsa’s least favorite of the twins.
And yet, such are the levels of insanity on Freak Show that Elsa’s immature stage jealousy and the consequent origins of a sure-to-be disastrous diva rivalry are being firmly kept at side-plot status. On this week’s creepy and crazy installment, new additions to the freak show throw the performers for a loop, Twisty the demented clown »
