'Power Rangers' Star Sarah Grey Will Play Stargirl In 'Legends Of Tomorrow' Season 2
Sarah Grey has joined the cast of "Legends of Tomorrow."
According to Entertainment Weekly, Grey will take on the role of Courtney Whitmore, a.k.a. Stargirl, in season 2 of the "Arrow" - "The Flash" offshoot.
Stargirl is a member of the Justice Society of America, a group that was introduced at the end of the show's season 1 finale. Besides Stargirl, other JSA members are Rex Tyler/Hourman (Patrick J. Adams), Dr. Mid-Nite and Obsidian.
Although not confirmed, John Wesley Shipp suggested in an interview with Variety last May that his new "The Flash" character -- Jay Garrick -- is also part of JSA.
"The fact that I'm now getting to morph into an entirely different character that is so important to the Justice Society of America, which also bleeds into 'Legends of Tomorrow' -- he's such an important character to this whole world -- it just opens up enormous possibilities for me as an actor going forward," Shipp said at the time.
As revealed at the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con last month, the Legends and the JSA will join forces to take down season 2's "Legion of Doom" -- a new gang of baddies composed by the Reverse-Flash/Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher), Captain Cold/Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), Malcolm Merlyn/The Dark Archer (John Barrowman) and Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough).
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim, however, revealed that the Legends and the JSA won't immediately click when they cross path at the beginning of the upcoming installment.
"It's all going to kick off with an epic battle between the Justice Society and the Legends," Guggenheim said at Comic-Con, according to Comic Book Resources. "It's required that every time there's more than one superhero in any place at any given time, they have to fight. We're honoring that rule and that tradition straight out of the gate."
Grey, who is set to appear in the upcoming "Power Rangers" big screen reboot, has also guest-starred on a number of TV series including A&E's "Bates Motel," The CW's "iZombie" and Fox's "Wayward Pines" and "Lucifer."
"Legends of Tomorrow" season 2 will premiere on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
