STARGIRL Casts Former COMMUNITY & THE X-FILES Actor Joel McHale As Starman

The DC Universe's upcoming Stargirl series, which will star Brec Bassinger in the title role, has added Community and The Happytime Murders actor Joel McHale as Sylvester Pemberton, a.k.a. Starman...

Variety is reporting that Primetime Emmy-nominee Joel McHale has joined the cast of the DC Universe's upcoming Stargirl series in a recurring role as Sylvester Pemberton, a.k.a. Starman.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, his character is being described as the Golden Age version. A courageous and confident Super Hero, Starman is a member of the Justice Society of America – DC’s original Super Hero team. Starman wields a mysterious anti-gravity weapon called the Cosmic Staff. His longtime partner is his sidekick, Stripesy, better known as Courtney Whitmore’s (Brec Bassinger) stepfather, Pat Dugan.

McHale is best known for his role as Jeff Winger on NBC's Community and his past credits also include, but are not limited to, Spider-Man 2, Ted, Deliver Us from Evil, Adult Beginners, Assassination Nation, The X-Files, Santa Clarita Diet, The Happytime Murders, and Game Over, Man.


The series itself follows Courtney as she inspires that unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past, and aims to reimagine Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in what promises to be an unpredictable series. Stargirl focuses on the character that started executive producer Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, and was lovingly inspired by his late sister, who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.

Stargirl premieres 2019
