The DC Universe streaming service plugs along at filling out the casts for its upcoming original TV series. Today Deadline reports that four final actors have been added to the cast of Stargirl. The new additions include Amy Smart (Justified, Crank) as Barbara Whitmore, mother of Courtney Whitmore, aka the titular Stargirl; Trae Romano (Robbie) as Mike Dugan, son of Pat ‘S.T.R.I.P.E.’ Dugan and Courtney’s stepbrother; and Neil Jackson (Westworld, Nocturnal Animals) and Hunter Sansone (Unfollow) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.
Here’s the official DC Universe synopsis of Stargirl:
Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.
