SMALLVILLE has found its SuperGirl and much to this TV Addict’s chagrin, series creator Al Gough decided to ignore your brilliant casting advice. Virtual unknown (unless you’re a fan of INSTANT STAR) Laura Vandervoort has been cast as Kara (SuperGirl). Fans can get a closer look at Ms. Vandervoort’s, err assets, at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con where Vandervoort will be joining SMALLVILLE executive producers Al Gough and Miles Millar for an audience Q&A.
In more super casting news, SUPERNATURAL is finally adding some Y chromosome to equal the X that is Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. According to SuperScooper Michael Ausiello:
Katie Cassidy — the 20-year-old daughter of ’70s teen idol David Cassidy — has been tapped to play Ruby, a fellow demon hunter Sam and Dean meet in the show’s third season premiere. In the casting breakdown, the character is described as “sexy, brutal and ruthless.”
As of yet, there’s no word on which lucky actress has won the role of Bela, that other Demon Hunter. But one thing is a given. Almost any regular reader of theTVaddict.com would sell their soul to the yellow-eyed-demon for the chance to spend nine months on a cramped Vancouver set with Sam and Dean.
