Geoff Johns’ new hit series DC’s Stargirl is bringing in Eclipso for Season 2. Thanks to a recent interview at New York Comic-Con, the latest details about Eclipso are now known.
In this Exclusive Interview, Jake Austin Walker discusses his experience playing Henry King Jr on DC’s Stargirl as well as his growing music career.
Airing throughout summer 2020, DC’s Stargirl was a huge hit for The CW and DC Universe. While many of the show’s young cast are relatively new faces, here are some of the projects that you may recognise them from.
August 2020’s Courageous Nerd Hall of Fame inductee is Luke Wilson. Once a month, Courageous Nerd will honour actors, writers and directors from across the entertainment industry by inducting them into the Courageous Nerd Hall of Fame.
Portrayed by Luke Wilson, mechanic Pat Dugan plays a major role DC’s Stargirl, which recently finished its 13-episode first season run on DC Universe and The CW. In the series, Pat is the stepfather to protagonist Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger), who takes on the superhero identity of Stargirl. Pat is married to Courtney’s mother Barbara (Amy Smart) and has a biological son, Mike (Trae Romano). On the other hand, he is also Starman’s (Joel McHale) former sidekick Stripsey, who operates the 15-foot robot known as STRIPE in present-day Blue Valley, Nebraska.
Only 15 years of age, Trae Romano is already establishing himself as a must-see young actor. The Atlanta native currently plays series regular ‘Mike Dugan’ on the DC Universe/CW series Stargirl. The show premiered in May 2020 and follows Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) becoming the titular superheroine. Trae’s character, Mike Dugan, is the relatively new younger step-brother to Courtney.
Luke Wilson and Amy Smart star as Trae’s onscreen father and stepmother with other co-stars including Neil Jackson, Neil Hopkins and Eric Goins.
Thank you to Trae for taking the time to chat with Courageous Nerd about Mike Dugan and Stargirl.

In this Exclusive Interview, among other topics, Hina discusses working on the DC Comics-inspired series, her role as Principal Bowin, bonding with fellow on-screen ISA members and experiencing Stargirl’s success as someone who is on the show.
