Glee's Melissa Benoist Is 'Supergirl'!

Glee's Melissa Benoist Is 'Supergirl'!

Melissa Benoist is definitely leaving McKinley High behind — for a cape!

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. Kara, who after arriving on Earth, was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, who 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.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Melissa as Supergirl?

Miles Teller 'Had About Three Weeks' To Learn Jazz on The Drums for 'Whiplash'

Miles Teller 'Had About Three Weeks' To Learn Jazz on The Drums for 'Whiplash'

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.

The 27-year-old actor was joined at the event by his girlfriend Keleigh Sperry, as well as co-stars Melissa Benoist, Paul Reiser, J.K. Simmons, and writer/director of the flick Damien Chazelle.

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, Kurt Geiger heels, and a Karma El Khalil necklace.
