    SmallvilleCast Talk Episode 189 - Melissa Benoist Is Supergirl: CBS Pilot

    in Television

    Melissa Benoist got her break when she was cast as a female lead in the William McKinley High School storyline on Glee when most of the Fox dramedy’s original stars saw their characters either move to New York or leave the show.

    Based on the characters from DC Comics, the project, from Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Berlanti Prods., centers on Kara Zor-El (Benoist). Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

    Written by Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, the project went through an extensive casting process, with several young actresses testing for the lead. Benoist had been consistently in the mix, first alongside Claire Holt and more recently considered along with Elizabeth Lail.

    Benoist, repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein & Setz, has a supporting role in the feature Whiplash, which is nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. She will next be seen in the film The Longest Ride, opposite Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood.

    in Hobbies

    Get ready to be amazed by the stellar cast bringing "NOBILITY," an out-of-the--box new dramedy from Cowboy Errant Pictures set 700 years in the future, to life. The concept revolves around the C.A.S. Nobility, humanity's most powerful starship with a crew, that's, well, anything but noble.“

    Nobility” has an incredible cast composed of sci-fi legends from Walter Koenig (“Star Trek: TOS”, “Babylon 5″) to Doug Jones ("Hellboy" series, "The Time Machine") and Adrienne Wilkinson (“Xena”, “Star Wars: Clone Wars”).  This is in addition to an all-star cast including Cas Anvar (“Assassin’s Creed,” "Diana," “Castle”),  James Kyson (“Heroes”),  Emmy-winner Michael Reaves (“Batman,” “Star Trek,” “Star Wars”) and more. 

    Real people existing in a real world with consequences for their actions – that is what’s at the core of “Nobility”.  Described as “Firefly” meets “The Office,” “Nobility” uses clever comedic scenarios -- as the best of science fiction-based films like “Back to the Future,” “Indiana Jones,” “Firefly,” “Buffy,” and “Doctor Who” have done -- as a means to open the door to an audience’s heart. They succeed on every level.
