Henry Thomas Is Dr Mid Nite In Stargirl

Henry Thomas (“The Haunting of Hill House,” “Gerald’s Game”) has been cast as the Golden Age DC Comics character Dr. Mid-Nite in the upcoming “Stargirl” TV series for DC Universe.

In the comics, he was a surgeon and medical pioneer named Dr. Charles McNider who was also a founding member of the Justice Society of America. Kwesi Ameyaw recently played a different version of the character on The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow”.

Thomas joins the already announced Brec Bessinger, Anjelika Washington, Joel McHale and Giancarlo Esposito. The story follows a high school teenager whose seemingly perfect life hits a major speed bump when she’s moved to Nebraska.

Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret – he used to be the sidekick to a superhero with a cosmic staff which she borrows and becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
