The EW has uncovered the mystery of the pink pen in DC‘s Stargirl. They shared exclusive news that comedian Jim Gaffigan will be joining the cast for season two. Gaffigan will be providing the voice for CGI character Thunderbolt. He is a pink imp from the mysterious land of Bahdnesia who grants wishes. He is extremely powerful though his wishes tend to cause more trouble that the wish-maker expected. Regardess, his heart is always in the right place.
In the Stargirl comics, Thunderbolt has been trapped inside a pen for ten years. In season one, we watched Courtney (Brec Bassinger) stole a pink pen from the Justice Society of America’s costume stash. Pat (Luke Wilson) warned Courtney that the pen held a powerful yet dangerous weapon and under no circumstances should be released. With Gaffigan’s casting, it begs a question, who clicks the pen? Is it intentional? Or does someone have one of those pen clicking fidgetting problems?
Gaffigan joins Bassinger, Wilson, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Trae Romano and Amy Smart. Stargirl will return for season two on the CW in 2021. Let us know how social media who you think unleashes Thunderbolt!
