Lou Ferrigno Jr. And Brian Stapf Join DC Universe's 'Stargirl' In Recurring Roles

Lou Ferrigno Jr. and Brian Stapf have both signed on to DC Universe's upcoming Stargirl for recurring roles of Hourman and Wildcat.

Hourman is known as Rex Tyler, a master chemist and adrenaline junkie who as Hourman is a thrill-seeking superhero with the ability to manifest super-strength… for one hour a day. A founding member of the Justice Society of America, Rex/Hourman struggles with balancing his life as a hero and father.

Wildcat is known as Ted Grant, this founding member of the Justice Society of America introduced in 1964 was previously updated into Star City gym owner and ex-vigilante Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez) who taught Laurel (Katie Cassidy) how to fight on Arrow. Stargirl's Golden Age version of Grant's clawed and cowled Wildcat is also a former heavyweight boxer and in all likelihood, will be just as indispensable to the titular heroine.

“Stargirl” centers on Courteney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger), a high school sophomore who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The series comes from executive producers Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schechter, based on DC comic book characters created by Geoff Johns. Johns, who launched his comic book career when he created the character of Stargirl in 1999, inspired by his late sister, is also set to write the premiere episode. Johns will also serve as showrunner.

“Stargirl” is produced by Berlanti Prods. and Mad Ghost Prods. in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Now I want to know if they're gonna have Wesley Dodds or Sanderson Hawkins. Sandman seems inevitable at this point.
