Journalist Rachel Maddow has joined the cast of CW's Batwoman - or at
least her voice has, as announced via The Hollywood Reporter.
Maddows will voice the character of radio personality Vesper Fairchild
- a one time romantic partner for Bruce Wayne, in comic books. She's
expected to appear in "multiple episodes."
Maddow previously wrote an introduction for a collection of Greg Rucka
and J.H. Williams III's Batwoman story "Elegy."
"We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic Voice of Gotham,"
Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries told THR. "In addition to Rachels
interest in Batwoman, we thought shed be the perfect casting choice
because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts Vespers
penchant for snark, gossip and criticism of female superheroes."
["hard-hitting journalism"? You mean like when she made a fool of
herself with Trump's tax return or the time she started to cry
on air b/c the Mueller report turned out to be a flop?]
Watching Democrats come up with schemes to "catch Trump" is like
watching Wile E. Coyote trying to catch Road Runner.
