Brooke Shields – Carol Ferris in “Justice League: The New Frontier”

Brooke Shields has a secret.

The star of NBCs new primetime drama Lipstick Jungle is harboring a guilty little desire that is just waiting for an opportunity to be released: Brooke Shields wants to be a super hero.

Im so drawn to the concept of a female warrior as the lead character Ive loved it since before they had shows like Alias and Bionic Woman, Shields admitted. As Im not exactly, lets say, a dainty girl Im not frail, and no matter what I do, Im not little Ive always secretly wished to have to go through some kind of training to do a big, physical role. Ive trained with the Blue Angels and Ive done triathlons, but ultimately, I think I want to be a super hero. Okay, I just want to play a super hero. I think that would be great. Id love to do that kind of role.

From his head-turning debuts in Dune and Blue Velvet to his iconic Special Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks and his current plum primetime role on Desperate Housewives, Kyle MacLachlan has had a memorable career.

Now you can add a new benchmark for the actor: MacLachlan makes his animation debut as the voice of Superman in the highly-anticipated direct-to-DVD film, Justice League: The New Frontier.

Superman stands for so many things that I believe in strength, justice, fighting for whats right, said MacLachlan. You just cant turn down the opportunity to play a guy like Superman.

MacLachlan is an integral part of an all-star cast that includes Neil Patrick Harris, David Boreanaz, Brooke Shields, Miguel Ferrer, Jeremy Sisto, Kyra Sedgwick and Phil Morris. Casting for the film focused on finding actors that could channel the tones of the Korean war era of the mid-1950s without sounding corny or old-fashioned.
