Melissa Benoist has been cast as Supergirl in the upcoming CBS drama.
I had no idea who she was either, so I had to IMDB her… To be honest, I still don’t really know. Apparently she is/was on that ‘Glee’ show, and is in the new Oscar nominated movie, ‘Whiplash’.
Benoist will play Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin from the planet Krypton. The show is all about her learning to use her powers for good bla bla bla.
I’m guessing if you liked ‘Smallville’, you’ll like this too.
She’s quite cute, so I’ll probably check it out. I doubt it’s going to be my next favourite show, but I think this Melissa girl is going places. Keep an eye out for her.
