Stargirl - Luke Wilson Joins Cast as Pat Dugan in DC Universe Series



Luke Wilson (Roadies, Legally Blonde, Anchorman) has joined the cast of Stargirl per Deadline. Wilson will take on the role of Pat Dugan, a once mechanic, then superhero, the pilot of Stripe, his 15-foot robot. It is not mentioned if this is a series regular, recurring or guest starring role.

Stargirl follows High School sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger) who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new DC Universe series reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable series premiering in 2019, produced by Warner Bros. Television, Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions.

Pat Dugan once went by the less-than-inspired superhero name of Stripesy, sidekick to a young hero known as the Star-Spangled-Kid and later Starman of the legendary Justice Society of America. Today, Pat has left his sidekick life behind him. But when his new step-daughter, Courtney Whitmore, discovers Pat's secret past and takes on Starman's legacy to become Stargirl, Pat is forced to come out of retirement and once again become a sidekick — to his step-daughter — this time piloting a 15-foot robot called Stripe.

"When I first moved to Los Angeles in 1996 and saw Bottle Rocket, I became a huge fan and admirer of Luke's," Geoff Johns said "And I literally wrote this part for Luke, hoping that someday and somehow he'd play Pat Dugan. I only envisioned him. And now I feel like I won the lottery! Luke's talent, humor, compassion — his presence and professionalism — and his creative collaboration, his ideas — we're so lucky to have him alongside Brec in Stargirl."




Wilson joins previously announced cast members Anjelika Washington, Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker, Joel McHale, Lou Ferrigno Jr., Brian Stapf, Henry Thomas, Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins, Nelson Lee and Brec Bassinger.
