Supergirl Casting Rumor?

As always, its wise to keep one's enthusiasm in check. While CBS has ordered a season of episodes, they could change their mind if the Pilot sucks or if it doesn't get good enough ratings or strong enough sponsor support. Happens all the time.

The producers hinted the other day that they were getting nervous about the Pilot timing if the show is going to air in the Fall. Apparently the casting was going too slowly. For them and for us.

I suppose they have to do the pilot and then get it approved, and then incorporate any feedback from inside the studio, and then go on. Hate to see this pushed out until Spring or whatever.

You maybe right Shadar:

There is an expression in special effects: You can have them Fast, You can have them Cheep, or You can have them Good. You can pick 2 out of the 4.

Television effects are normally pretty cheep-but if they give them time(say Game of Thrones or Doctor Who) they can be good., or at least decent. 22 Episodes is a lot of television to do major special effects on even if in most episodes its really 5-10 minutes. And For most of the effects you would do on a supergirl show-compositing,3d Destruction-there is only so much you can do before you shoot the live action stuff. So if they want to get a pipeline for it starting as early as possible helps a lot.

That said props, sets etc are things that take time-and for a lot of TV thats built before you start shooting. They mentioned the costume-that takes time. I do think the Man of Steel aproach, of "This cape is 100% CGI" wasn't as bad as Green Lantern, doing a more inn camera look with real sets and locations could be interesting to-and if they even manage to do real stunts all the better. What makes Green Arrow a kind of good show action wise is that it is primarily real stunts and actors-and if they can incorporate that works-but it takes time.

And Casting is very important-the show will rise and fall with its actress. This could make someones career-or it call fall after 2 episodes. Its a tricky part not just for her but for the characters around her.

So Let see what they do. I am caustiously hopeful for it.

FYI, the Kara/Alex interviews is the same tete-a-tete as we had in Kayla Compton's interview that was posted here earlier in another thread: www.superwomenmania.com/index.php/forum?...pic&catid=8&id=29090

I like some of the auditions for Alex in there, especially the redhead.....

Spoilertv.com has even more audition videos.
I don't think Benoist has been cast in the lead yet. It's more likely that WB suits liked her audition and she may be a finalist for the lead role

Rumor of the day/week is the role will now be Elizabeth Lail who played Anna on Once Upon a Time.....you could be very right about the "finalist" thing, AJF. That would still match the inside info I got......

Elizabeth Lail?! Where did you here that? Sometime ago, I thought to myself she would be a good choice for the lead role.

Its a twitter rumor, told to me by the guy at Supergirl.tv Supposedly, she followed CBS people and they followed her back in the past few days (kinda similar to Melissa Benoist), and she apparently is in LA this week.....

Can check it out here: supergirl.tv/twitter-reveals-2-hopefuls

It could be that both Benoist and Lail are among the finalist for the role.
Compared to Benoist, Lail has very little acting experience. She just graduated from the University Of North Carolina just last May with a theatre degree.
She had done only a few school plays and two student films before being cast OAAT. She only filmed nine episodes.

Hello everyone, first, I want to send a special thank you to Ifan for setting me up with this account! Secondly, I thought I'd pass on a new rumor going on. Ali Adler, lead producer for Supergirl on CBS, said a big news announcement should be coming soon. Now I know we heard that from Rapaport casting before, but Ali being the producer has the gusto to stand behind that. Its my thinking that they have found their actress for Kara, they are just finalizing contract stuff.

I know this is also kind of self promotion since I am one of the folks who run Supergirl.tv so if that isn't cool please let me know. Thanks everyone!

Tweet from Meghan Ory who auditioned for Alex:

"Still nothing about the supergirl casting, thanks CBS for taking care of my heart but crush it now or tell me what I want to hear !"

Her audition tape was the best that I saw for Alex, and I thought she had a great look to her.....

I think this is someone trying to support Meghan but isn't actually her.
