Two new actors have boarded DC Universe's Stargirl. Yvette Monreal (Matador, Faking It) and Christopher James Baker (True Detective, Ozark) have both been cast as series regulars in the upcoming streaming DC Universe original series.
They'll join Brec Bassinger, who will portray Courtney Whitmore, the show's titular teenage hero, on the 13-episode streaming series. While they'll be part of the show's regular cast, the specifics regarding Monreal and Baker's roles are still being kept under wraps.
As reported by Deadline, these actors will be portraying "undisclosed DC characters." A similar announcement was made earlier this month, when it was revealed that Anjelika Washington (Runaways, Shameless) would also join Stargirl in a mystery role, with series producer and Stargirl creator Geoff Johns only sharing that Washington's character was one "familiar to DC Comics fans."
As the show's official description says, Stargirl will inspire "an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past," and the show will feature a new take on DC's first superteam, the Justice Society of America. Given the Society's large roster and numerous villains, these actors could end up portraying any of a number of established DC characters on the show.
Stargirl joins the DC Universe line-up of Titans and the upcoming Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing live-action dramas. Other original content already announced includes an animated adult-aimed Harley Quinn series and Young Justice: Outsiders, a continuation of the fan-favorite Young Justice cartoon.
