Here’s Your New ‘Supergirl’

CBS goes all in with this young actress for next fall’s Supergirl. It didn’t turn out to be Gemma Atkinson as was rumored. Instead, CBS went 2-3 boob sizes down with Melissa Benoist. Benoist appeared in Glee, Homeland and shows up in Academy Award-nominated movie, Whiplash. She also appeared in some truly NSFW pics that leaked last year. Judging by those pics, Supergirl has a weakness and it ain’t kryptonite.

Expect to see even more of her (is that possible with those pics??) come later this year when she stars in Danny Collins with Al Pacino and Jennifer Garner. Her star’s rising indeed: Glee to Supergirl to Pacino. Deadline gives more info on Benoist and Supergirl:

Based on the characters from DC Comics, the project, from Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Berlanti Prods., centers on Kara Zor-El (Benoist). Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Oh well. Who else couldn’t contain their curiosity at Gemma Atkinson trying to fit into Supergirl’s costume?
