Kinnaman will play Edward Baldwin, a top NASA astronaut, while Dorman and Jones have joined as Gordo and Tracy Stevens, “one of the prominent NASA couples.”
That Hashtag Show has the official casting call and breakdown for the role of Courtney “Stargirl” Whitmore.
The series is looking to cast an 18+-year-old actress, of any ethnicity, to play a 15-year-old Courtney. Described as an intelligent, compassionate and athletic young woman, Courtney is witty as well as an incredible kind individual who is living a perfect teenage life in Los Angeles, California. However, her life is completely changed when her mom gets married. Because of this, Courtney is forced to leave her life in L.A. behind as she moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska with Courtney’s mom’s new husband and his family. While she struggles to adjust to life in Nebraska, from attending a new school to living with a step-family, Courtney’s life is forever changed when she discovers that her stepdad has a big secret. He used to be a superhero’s sidekick and Courtney takes it upon herself to “borrow” this superhero’s cosmic staff which leads Courtney to become a surprising inspiration as she leads a brand new generation of superheroes!
Stargirl follows High School sophomore Courtney Whitmore who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new DC Universe series reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable series premiering in 2019, produced by Warner Bros. Television, Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions.

Legends of Tomorrow
Episode 4.04 is titled, “Wet Hot American Bummer,” according to producer Keto Shimizu on Twitter.
A miserable-looking Stephen Amell promises Oliver will have the “shit kicked out of him” in season seven.
I’ve had more physically taxing days in the first four episodes of Season 7 than I’ve had for the entirety of certain seasons. Just getting the s—- kicked out of me every single day.
Amell seemed to hint he was present when Ruby Rose first tried on her Batwoman costume.
Speaking with Newsarama, showrunner Tod Helbing confirmed Keiynan Lonsdale, who announced earlier this year he’d be exiting the CW superhero series as a regular castmember, will return as Wally West for three episodes of season five.
You will see Wally in the first episode. He is in three episodes this season. We don’t have as much time with Kid Flash as I think everyone would like to see, but the story we have for him is really cool.
Finally, a new promo for season two wants you to pick a side in the mutant revolution.
