SUPERGIRL TV Show Gets That Calista Flockhart Boost

The TV actor has been cast in the TV pilot.

It can get hard to keep track of all the superheroes on or soon to be on television these days. So just in case you forgot, CBS - not the CW - is currently working on a Supergirl pilot starring Melissa Benoist as Supergirl.

Now Deadline reports that Ally McBeal star Calista Flockhart has joined the cast as Cat Grant, a character with fake boobs so egregious that I just got bashful googling her name at this coffeeshop. She is also Supergirl’s boss.

Supergirl is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti, who worked with Flockhart on Brothers & Sisters where I assume she played a sister. It’ll be interesting to see how this Supergirl series ends up looking. From what I’ve been hearing, a lot of these newer superhero shows have been getting better and better. Having weekly doses of a badass Supergirl would be seriously exciting.
