CW DC Shows Get Kryptonian & Deathstroke Jr.

The CW is casting up on its DC series with two key hires revealed this week by TV Line.

First up, “Supergirl” is seeking a fortysomething actress to play a mysterious and ‘sexually compelling’ Kryptonian. The character is being likened to the Red Priestess from “Game of Thrones”.

That announcement comes hot on the heels of the casting of “24” alum Carlos Bernard as Maggie’s father.

Meanwhile over on “Arrow,” a young Australian actor is being sought for the guest-starring role of an ‘introverted, moody and naturally athletic’ teenager who is the son of Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett).

Both shows return the week of October 9th.
