Amy Smart And More Join DC Universe’s Stargirl

by Erik Amaya


Courtney Whitmore’s (Brec Bassinger) family rounds out as DC Universe’ Stargirl inches closer to production.
TVLine reports Amy Smart has been cast as Courtney’s mother, Barbara, in the upcoming series. Based on the character created by Geoff Johns and Lee Moder, Stargirl centers on Courtney, a teenager from Los Angeles who moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska when Barbara remarries. She soon discovers her new stepfather, Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson), was the sidekick of the Golden Age superhero Starman (Joel McHale). Taking Starman’s Cosmic Staff for herself, Courtney adopts the identity of Stargirl and inspires a new generation of heroes to join the Justice Society of America.
In addition to Smart, the series will also feature Trae Romano as Mike Dugan, Pat’s teenage son, and Neil Jackson and Hunter Sansone in as-yet undisclosed roles based on DC characters.
The series will also feature Anjelika Washington, Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker, Jake Austin Walker, and Cameron Gellman in yet more undisclosed roles and a surprising number of Golden Age JSAers; including Lou Ferrigno Jr as Hourman, Henry Thomas as Dr. Midnite and Brian Stapf as Wildcat. The series will also feature a modern day Injustice Society composed of actors Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins and Nelson Lee as villains Tigress, Sportsmaster and Dragon King.
Stargirl debuts on DC Universe later this year.
