Hoping to inject some new life into an already aging franchise, the CW announced yesterday that SuperGirl would be joining the cast of SMALLVILLE next season. Yes, SMALLVILLE has officially run out of ideas. Yet rather then rip the show for going to the ‘superhero well’ once again (see: last season’s addition of Green Arrow), we thought we’d think positive and offer up a few SUPER suggestions for who we would like to see in the role of SuperGirl come September 2007.
Naturally, the first name that comes to mind is an adorable and feisty detective who unfortunately finds herself among the ranks of the recently unemployed. Yes, we realize Kristen Bell isn’t from Krypton, but really, isn’t Neptune close enough?
Second on our list is a more unconventional choice, but a casting coup nonetheless. Not only would Liza Weil bring some serious acting chops to SMALLVILLE, we’re confident that by channelling her inner Paris Geller, krypto-freaks don’t stand a chance.
A few more choices include TRU CALLING’S Eliza Dushku (hottest SuperGirl ever!), Amanda Seyfriend (love her on BIG LOVE) or Gabriel Union (isn’t about time the whitest city in America — Smallville, KS — got a little more diverse?)
Agree, disagree, post away with who you would like to see as next season’s SuperGirl. And no, this girl is not an option!
