More Supergirl Show News: Calista Flockhart As Cat Grant
News about the Supergirl Show is being released pretty regularly now and I have to say, every single thing I have read and heard about this show so far has been nigh-perfect.
Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, David Rapoport and all the folks setting up the cast and tone of the show are just knocking it out of the park. And as a lifelong Supergirl fan, I am thrilled with the news and love the more wide-reaching excitement I am sensing around the character.
And now the latest news ... another great casting decision ...
Here is the description of Cat from the original publicity releases: Cat is described as a woman in her 40s and the founder of media conglomerate
called CatCo. The casting information says the producers are open to any
ethnicities for the part, which is described as "J.Lo by way of Anna
Wintour." Kara Danvers, Supergirl's civilian identity, will be Cat's
personal assistant when she's not saving lives.
Flockhart just seems like a big win.
I am interested in seeing just how the show's Cat relates to Supergirl.
Will she be a supporter? Helping to promote Supergirl?
Will she attack Supergirl in the media the way the Cat in the last incarnation of Supergirl did? Slinging the mud on her in social media?
Or will this be a self-serving Cat, promoting or attacking depending on the public sentiment?
This is one more excellent announcement about this show!
Now we need the casting of Alex, Wynn, and Hank. And we need to see the costume!
Kudos to all involved with the show. This Supergirl fan is happy!
