Joel McHale (Community) has been cast as Sylvester Pemberton aka Starman on the upcoming DC Universe series Stargirl.

Variety is reporting that the recurring role is being described as “Golden Age Starman.”

A courageous and confident superhero, Starman is a member of the Justice Society of America. He wields a mysterious anti-gravity weapon called the cosmic staff and has a longtime sidekick named Stripesy, who is better known as Courtney Whitmore’s stepfather, Pat Dugan.

McHale will star alongside lead Brec Bessinger (School of Rock), Anjelika Washington (Shameless), and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul).

Stargirl follows the story of Courtney Whitmore who is a smart, athletic and above all else kind girl. This high school teenager’s seemingly perfect life hits a major speedbump when her mother gets married and her new family moves from Los Angeles, California to Blue Valley, 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. “Borrowing” the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.

Character creator Geoff Johns will write and produce the series.
