Anjelika Washington Joins DC Universe’s Stargirl

DC Universe has announced that Actress Anjelika Washington will join the cast of DC Universe’s “Stargirl” as a series regular in a Mystery Role.

Though Washington’s role is being kept secret for now, she will play a “familiar” DC Comics character, according to series executive producer and writer Geoff Johns. Washington joins Brec Bassinger, who was cast as the title character in September.

“Anjelika Washington is a bright, funny and unbelievably talented actor and I’m thrilled to have her join the cast alongside Brec,” said Geoff Johns in a statement. “We’re withholding the character she’s playing for now, but it’ll be one familiar to DC Comics fans!”

Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger), who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The show will feature a new take on the Justice Society of America, DC Comics’ first superhero team created by editor Sheldon Mayer and writer Gardner Fox in 1940. The team has since been rebooted several times, most notably for a 2006-2011 version written by Johns that featured Stargirl as a mentor to other young heroes — including Johns creations Cyclone and Lightning.

From Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, “Stargirl” is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schechter.
