Cameron Gellman Joins DC Universe’s Stargirl
by Erik Amaya
One cast member from the short-lived Heathers television show has found a new high school series to call home.
Deadline reports Cameron Gellman has joined the cast of DC Universe’s Stargirl in an undisclosed role. Based on the character created by Geoff Johns and Lee Moder, Brec Bassinger stars as Courtney Whitmore, a teenager from Los Angeles who moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska when her mother 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.
The series will also feature Anjelika Washington in another undisclosed role 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.
