Slowly but surely, progress is being made on CBS’ upcoming “Supergirl” series. So far only two actors have been confirmed for the series: Melissa Benoist will play Supergirl and Mehcad Brooks will play Jimmy Olsen. There are still a few more roles to cast before the show — which has a series commitment from CBS — starts production. With the casting process still underway, a new series of audition videos for the character of Wynn Schott have revealed additional details about the show, specifically Supergirl’s supersuit.
Actor Jesse Liebman posted a couple of audition videos for the part of Schott, a tech guy that appears to be Kara Zor-El’s primary support. ComicBook.com posted the videos — which have since been removed — along with transcripts of the scenes in question. Similarly, the audition videos from last month have been deleted as well.
The dialogue, transcribed below, reveals that Supergirl will wear a cape and costume provided for her by Wynn; it also confirms that Superman will have some sort of presence on the show, even if its only in passing mention. It’s possible that the dialogue provided to actors to audition with did not come from a shooting script, but the fact that all the audition videos have been yanked gives their content additional weight.
Wynn: I can’t believe I’m actually in your apartment.
Supergirl: Wynn, if we’re going to use our lunch half-half to help me with my super-hearing we need to work fast.
Wynn: I’m still not sure how all this is happening. Maybe the brownie I ate belonged to my roommate.
Supergirl: My abilities come from your Sun. The planet I was born on…
Wynn: Woah! Wait! Hold on, you’re from another planet?
Supergirl: Krypton. Yeah, so is my cousin.
Wynn: You and him? You’re related?
Supergirl: Our dad’s were brothers. I’m going to need you to focus. I want your help. I told you, I don’t a thing about fighting crime.
Wynn: Please, you got the hard part down. First, you need…
Supergirl: A costume.
Wynn: It’s called a suit.
Supergirl: How do you know how to sew?
Wynn: I’m a social experiment, my moms were trying to create a post-modern man. I can also swing dance and I do a fantastic curry. You look very pretty … For a crime-fighting alien. Not that you look like an alien.
Supergirl: I got it!
Wynn: Maybe there are entire planets inhabited solely by gorgeous people. So, second thing stopping you from being a crime-fighter is a crime. Hacked into the [cop’s] frequency. Think the I.T. would’ve built better firewalls by now. I suggest we start with something basic. There’s a car chase on the 1-12 freeway in progress.
Supergirl: I could do a car chase.
Wynn: I always thought a cape was a little presentational and over-the-top, but it aids with aerodynamics. I should’ve thought of that.
Supergirl: National City Bank is reporting a 4-3-2, 6th and Spring. Suspects are armed and dangerous.
Wynn: Are you sure you are bullet-proof?
Supergirl: I hope so. I’ve never been shot.
