CBS' 'Supergirl' casting for Superman. Seriously.
According to TV Line, CBS's "Supergirl" is seeking its very own Superman.
On ProjectCasting.com, the casting report calls for someone who is "5-foot-11 or taller," "square-jawed" and has "a ripped physique" to play the body double for "a DC Comic Superhero." All interested parties must e-mail their application with "Superman" as the subject, seemingly removing any ambiguity.
Though his existence is hinted at in the show's official synopsis, this is the first confirmation that he will be seen -- in some form -- in the pilot, though the listing for a "body double" implies that it will likely not be a full-fledged appearance.
The existing cast includes Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant.
Superman is portrayed by Henry Cavill in the 2013 Warner Bros. film "Man of Steel" and the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
