    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has been cast in the role of Vesper Fairchild in Batwoman

    https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/rac...cw-1203359840/

    The CW’s new “Batwoman” series sent up the signal for someone to play a radio personality with a “penchant for snark,” and Rachel Maddow answered the call.

    The MSNBC host has been cast in the role of Vesper Fairchild, who is described as a TV and radio figure who once had a romantic relationship with Bruce Wayne. The news comes only two days before the show premieres. It seems that Maddow will not in fact appear on screen, but that her appearance will be purely in a voice role capacity.

    “We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic Voice of Gotham. In addition to Rachel’s interest in ‘Batwoman,’ we thought she’d be the perfect casting choice because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts Vesper’s penchant for snark, gossip, and criticism of female superheroes,” said “Batwoman” showrunner Caroline Dries of Maddow’s casting.

    I think this is much more in line with what she actually does in her role within what we refer to as "news" show host.
