Supergirl Will Wear A Cape & Her Neighbor Will Make Her Costume

supergirlauditions

Actor Jesse Liebman ("Did You Hear About the Morgans?") has posted his audition videos for the role of Winslow “Wynn” Schott for CBS' new comic book-based television series Supergirl. Up until now, all we knew about Wynn is from the character breakdown TV Line reported a few months ago.

WINSLOW ‘WYNN’ SCHOTT - This twentysomething tech whiz/Comic-Con stalwart toils for CatCo as a programmer, unaware of his own (toying?) potential. Unware of her secret, he carries a torch for Kara, whom he lives next door to. - TV Line

In the first video, Wynn chats with his neighbor Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl. Wynn has a crush on Kara, and does a pretty poor job of hiding it. Although, Supergirl doesn't seem to notice Wynn's interest, yet she has no problem seeing his deviated septum.

In the breakdown it said Wynn wasn't aware of Kara's secret, but in the second video he is very much aware of it as Kara will use him as her go-to-guy for advice on how to be a superhero. He even makes her costume.

Supergirl: Thanks, Wynn.

Wynn: Sorry I fell asleep during our face time last night. Maybe sometime we could watch a movie together. You know, in the same room.

Supergirl: I had fun watching you snore. Your septum is slightly deviated in your left nostril. I'd get that checked.

Wynn: How did ... Nevermind. Hey, maybe we could go for one in real-life?

Supergirl: Sorry, I would, but I have a date.

Wynn: A date? Really? Cool. Awesome. Great. Dating is fun. Who with?

Supergirl: Match.com' guy. We're 82% compatible, so I think it should be good. He likes, Soul Cycle. 

Wynn: You, hate Soul Cycle.

Supergirl: That must be part of the other 18%.

Wynn: You know, you can't quantify emotion based on an algorithm.

Supergirl: You're I.T., isn't your whole life based on algorithms?

Wynn: Yes, so if there was an algorithm for love I would know about it. Just like you'll know it when it hits you. It'll be like, POW!

----------------------------------------------

Wynn: I can't believe I'm actually in your apartment.

Supergirl: Wynn, if we're going to use our lunch half-half to help me with my super-hearing we need to work fast.

Wynn: I'm still not sure how all this is happening. Maybe the brownie I ate belonged to my roommate.

Supergirl: My abilities come from your Sun. The planet I was born on...

Wynn: Woah! Wait! Hold on, you're from another planet?

Supergirl: Krypton. Yeah, so is my cousin.

Wynn: You and him? You're related?

Supergirl: Our dad's were brothers. I'm going to need you to focus. I want your help. I told you, I don't a thing about fighting crime.

Wynn: Please, you got the hard part down. First, you need...

Supergirl: A costume.

Wynn: It's called a suit.

-------------------------------------

Supergirl: How do you know how to sew?

Wynn: I'm a social experiment, my moms were trying to create a post-modern man. I can also swing dance and I do a fantastic curry.

You look very pretty ... For a crime-fighting alien. Not that you look like an alien.

Supergirl: I got it!

Wynn: Maybe there are entire planets inhabited solely by gorgeous people. So, second thing stopping you from being a crime-fighter is a crime. Hacked into the [cop's] frequency. Think the I.T. would've built better firewalls by now. I suggest we start with something basic. There's a car chase on the 1-12 freeway in progress.

Supergirl: I could do a car chase.

--------------------------------------

Wynn: I always thought a cape was a little presentational and over-the-top, but it aids with aerodynamics. I should've thought of that. 

Supergirl: National City Bank is reporting a 4-3-2, 6th and Spring. Suspects are armed and dangerous.  

Wynn: Are you sure you are bullet-proof?

Supergirl: I hope so. I've never been shot.

What do you think of all of that? Let us know in the comment section.

    Eeeeeehhhhhh. Really not feeling that writing style. Feels like Boy Meets World Superhero Style to me.

    The sooner this show bombs ,the better.

  1. This guy sounds more like Jimmy Olsen than Jimmy Olsen. This sounds like some cross between Big Bang Theory writing and Jonah Hill's character in Megamind. Can't wait for this to die, and it really kills me to be able to say that.

  2. Is National City something new in the DC universe? With all of the real cities and fake cities already in the comics weird they would make another one up.

    It will FAIL like its predessesor. Comics heroines are never appealing, except for the character Wonder Woman.
