I've never watched this show, but here is a story about yet another Supergirl making her debut on Smallville. It sounds like they are basing her on the current comic book character:

Word from that article says that a casting call is gonna be going out soon. Any suggestions for casting?

Now that Veronica Mars is cancelled, Kristen Bell would be available, though I think she may be a little too old for the role.

This is way better news than Bionic Woman... and that was already good news. Execution all depends on writing and character, of course, but very exciting news.

As far as the actress... most of my fav's would be too old. Given she's the same age as Kal but has been in suspended animation (so she's a total newbie to Earth, etc. ), they'll need someone who is convincingly a teenager and can pull of both naive and powerful. And, of course, someone who can act at least as well as the current cast. She should also be 5'7" or taller and fit looking.

It seems a little strange they would add a major character to the show, seeing how season 7 is to be Smallville' s last season. Are they thinking of a spin-off when Smallville ends?

A Smallville spinoff with a female Kryptonian lead? That sounds a bit too much like a dream come true to let myself do too much hoping.

But, with a new actress who wants to get a good run (current cast has been doing this too long already -- its a TV show, not a career) for a few seasons... I'm on board with that concept.

Put her into a urban setting (for complexity and to allow an secret-identity career of some significance) with lots of worthy opponents... besides, somebody has to keep Lex in line, and who better than Kal's blonde cousin?

Yeah, seems like its being setup for nothing but spinoff possbilities in my mind. I've seen it mentioned as a cheap desperate "jump the shark" move, but it its "declared" last season "jump the shark" theories don't really apply IMO.

With the addition of a new "semi-regular" female cast member (new Daily Planet editor), it seems very awkward that they'd introduce another female semi-regular on an already (forgive me) "female top-heavy" cast with Ms Kent, Lois, Lana, and Chloe. So maybe they are doing it with a purpose in mind....

Early favorable rumblings of BW over at NBC and the cancelling of Veronica Mars may have given the CW the impetus to test the waters with another "girl power" show to fill VM's void....well, we can hope....

If we're throwing names into the ring to play Kara, how about Kaley Cuoco

Definitely has the look down, but what I saw of her on Charmed, she has this grating quality about her that's hard to like, IMO. Plus, her foray as a superheroine in "Battle of the Hexes" left a little to be desired. However, she DID look great in the outfit!

Somebody at IMDB's Smallville page claims Julie Berman has been cast as Kara. The same is said at Berman's IMDB page. "They" claim she was secretly cast months ago. She's a regular on ABC's General Hospital, 5'3", born in 1983.

Hmm....she's almost 27 and hardly has the look of a "sixteen year old" but very attractive and has a good look nonetheless:

As for the validity of the post, I'd be skeptical since the news JUST came out and mentioned a casting call going out soon. Still, I'd imagine they'd film the season premiere in July sometime, so they'd have to get going soon.....

I wondered how fast this would turn into a "she should be the one" thread! haha

This is good news. To be honest ~ I've watched maybe ten Smallville episodes ~ but this would of course drag me in. :)

As far as our pipe dream of a spin off. Well, let's see if some of the Buffy style fans jump onboard. We can hope.

I've seen it mentioned as a cheap desperate "jump the shark" move, but it its "declared" last season "jump the shark" theories don't really apply IMO.


Wait? Who said that ~ I'll kill them. Oh wait! I SAID THAT!!!

My correction......she's cast as a 19 year old (not a 16 yr old), so tthey could go with an older actress. Look like she's gonna be introduced at SDCC at the end of July so they gonna be casting her soon....

Over at www.kryptonsite.com/ they have a casting breakdown for the role. Sounds like the role hasn't been cast yet. I hope this is true, while Julie Berman is a good looking woman, she just doesn't scream Supergirl to me. Seems like she may be in 13 episodes, or between 7-13 episodes, or the role will be cast before 13 July or............. who knows?

According to the blurbs, she can fly (which Clark can't), she's rebellious and strong-willed, and Jimmy Olson becomes her love interest. Lucky bastard.

I wonder if they're going to have Clark meet/find her just as she's coming around from stasis or if she'll have been awake for a while and finds him.

I'm hopping she finds him ~ but they might think that's too close to what they did with that fake out Kara.

Need to get the hidden "NOC List" of Nielson Families and make sure they watch to make it happen. And mobilize letter-writing campaigns!! I nominate Argo and Yosh to head it up!!

Better and better... hope the writing and actress are good enough to get the viewers to substantiate the move. I worry that the average TV watcher isn't ready for a superstrong female lead.

But given the SG comic book sales, they have an audience (other than ourselves, who would be nutso about this).

I think the CW thinks BW is going to be a hit and they want to jump on the tv superwoman bandwagon.
