Glee's Melissa Benoist Cast As 'Supergirl'!

Congrats to Melissa Benoist — she’s Supergirl!

The 26-year-old actress, who played Marley on Glee, is headed to the CBS and Warner Bros. Television series, Supergirl.

Supergirl centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. After arriving on Earth, Kara was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, and they taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers.

Now 24, Kara feels un-empowered, a slave to having repressed her innate abilities. She’s still pretty, but with her face hidden behind glasses and her hair pulled back, she doesn’t know it herself. An unexpected disaster forces her to use her powers in public. Energized by her heroic deed, for the first time in her life, Kara begins embracing her extraordinary abilities. She begins helping the people of her city and they soon take notice — and she’s even given a new moniker: Supergirl.

Miles Teller Takes 'Whiplash' To L.A. with Girlfriend Keleigh Sperry & Co-Star Melissa Benoist!

Miles Teller is dapper as he gets all suited up for the premiere of his latest film Whiplash held at the Bing Theatre at LACMA on Monday (October 6) in Los Angeles.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Miles Teller

Miles recently opened up about how much training went into Whiplash.

“I started playing drums when I was 15. I played in some rock bands and stuff. I took my drums with me when I moved out to New York. And then when I moved out to L.A…. I’ve always had my drum kit on standby in case some of my friends who play guitar come over, we can jam,” Miles told MovieFone. “For the movie, I never played jazz before, so I started taking lessons for four hours a day, three days a week. I think we had about three weeks. Not a whole lot of time. I was pretty nervous about not being able to do it.”

FYI: Melissa is wearing a Maiyet dress and Kurt Geiger heels.
