Swept up in the ever whirling wind of movie-TV reboots was Bradley Cooper’s 2011 thriller Limitless, and the CBS adaptation has officially found a new man to pop some smart pills. Cooper’s own American Sniper war buddy Jake McDorman will step in as the new leading man of CBS’ Limitless, 10% of his brain and all.

Now that production on CBS’ Supergirl series has formally gotten up, up and underaway, our first look at Glee star Melissa Benoist as our new Kara Zor-El has floated safely to Earth. See Supergirl go Man of Steel dark with our first photos of the new CBS series’ costume!
Just when you thought CBS’ Supergirl pilot had enough on its plate between Cat Grant, Jimmy Olsen, Cyborg Superman, Toyman, Helen Slater, Dean Cain and one Super-body, the DC drama adds another dose of big bad. Iron Man and Star Trek star Faran Tahir will play the role of a mysterious alien “Commander,” one who sounds suspiciously like…
CBS’ Supergirl got some unexpected lift with the casting of former Super-stars Dean Cain and Helen Slater, though the latest addition bring us back to Earth for another check off the main cast. Smash star Jeremy Jordan will join Kara Zor-El as Winslow Schott, better known as DC Superman antagonist The Toyman.
Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?
The other night brought word that CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series might potentially feature the Man of Steel in an able-bodied cameo, but who’s ready for some actual names and faces? Not Another Teen Movie star Chyler Leigh has nabbed the role of Kara’s sister “Alex,” while Homeland alum David Harewood may one day gear up as Cyborg Superman.
Everything we’ve heard about CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series suggests that the Man of Steel himself would play a subdued, cursory role, Kara’s supporting cast even pilfering a few names from Superman lore. Now, the CBS super-drama confirms its intent to feature Superman in the pilot episode, or at least a Super-looking man.
CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series boasts a number of DC figures among its primary cast, and while Kara Zor-El and Jimmy Olsen have already been found, two new figures from DC lore have joined the party. Calista Flockhart will return to television to portray Superman media mogul Cat Grant, while Nashville star Laura Benanti will play Kara’s Kryptonian mother.
Whether or not you thought Bradley Cooper’s 2011 ‘Limitless’ needed a TV reboot of the 100% brain-power hero solving cases for the FBI, CBS certainly seems committed to making it work. Director Neil Burger has exited the remake project for scheduling purposes, surprisingly leaving ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ helmer Marc Webb in his place.
CBS’ forthcoming ‘Supergirl’ series has kept right on casting beyond its titular heroine, but as with any good DC series, villains will come out of the woodwork, some more literally than others. A new report suggests that DC’s “Lumberjack” will be the first big bad Kara Zor-El faces in following Superman’s bootsteps, but a far more sinister villain may be pulling the strings.
