Music Meister on The Flash and Supergirl

Music Meister on The Flash/Supergirl: Jonathan Groff, Ne-Yo and 6 More Brilliant Casting Suggestions

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s (more unsolicited) super casting suggestions from TVLine!

Music Meister has been ID’d as the Big Bad at the center of the two-part Supergirl/The Flash musical crossover and, according to sources, Greg Berlanti & Co. are currently looking for a vocally gifted actor in their 20s or 30s to play the iconic evildoer. Well, they need look no further than the gallery below, because we’ve got eight ideas worth singing about.

You’ll notice that our short list is missing one obvious name: Neil Patrick Harris. Not only is NPH an accomplished singer and actor, he actually has a history with Music Meister, having voiced the character on the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series. But we’re hearing it’s doubtful the quadruple threat will be getting his live-action Meister groove on for the CW event. (You may’ve noticed he’s a little busy these days.) 

Oh, and not to toot our own horns, but our track record is pretty sturdy in this arena. Over the summer, we included Tyler Hoechlin in our list of 10 possible Supermans for Supergirl, and within a month the Teen Wolf actor landed the high-flying role. Will lightning strike twice for us? Let’s just say we’re feeling pretty confident about these eight recommendations.

So, go ahead and scroll through the gallery to the upper right (or click here for direct access) and then hit the comments with your thoughts on our selections! 

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Let’s go meta and cast Darren Criss, who they both worked with on Glee.

  2. Bwhit says:

    Aaron Tveit all the way!!! I’ve wanted him on one of the DC shows in any capacity for a long time.

  3. abz says:

    Aaron Tveit and Jonathan Groff are great choices. I’d personally love to see Matt Bomer in the role. The man has a beautiful singing voice. If you haven’t listened to them, look up his covers of “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” and “Heaven” from the Magic Mike films in addition to his guest performance on Glee. Seriously how is that this man has not yet been cast as a live-action superhero before? I read somewhere that at one point he was supposed to play Superman on film, but it fell through.

    • Mallory says:

      I was going to suggest Matt Bomer too!! And especially since we didn’t get him as Superman…let’s have him as Music Meister!!

  4. Nicole says:

    Too bad Colin Donnell’s on Chicago Med and already the DCTV’s Tommy Merlyn. He could have fun doing this.

    Another good pick could be Steve McKenzie (Jester) or Joshua Sasse (Galavant) from Galavant.

  5. Luis Roman says:

    Still casting my ballot for Chris Colfer.

  6. Jim says:

    I vote for Neil Patrick Harris

  7. Steven says:

    John Gallagher Jr!

  8. Chuck Me says:

    Zachary Levi!

  9. Tiana says:

    Michael Arden, if he’s not too busy directing stuff.

  10. Hollie says:

    I would sell my soul to Greg Berlanti to get them to cast Aaron Tveit.

  11. Jordan says:

    Rachel. Bloom. No reason the Music Meister can’t be a woman! She’d be brilliant, and it’d keep it in the CW family.

  12. chellemabelle says:

    Groff has my vote. Regardless, just make sure Jesse L. Martin is singing– MUST. HAVE. THIS.

  13. T.W.S.S. says:

    How about already-in-the-CW-family Joshua Sasse?

  14. Mary says:

    maybe the music meister can be a woman! Bethany Joy Lenz!!! she can act and sing AMAZING!!! she do Marvel last year with AoS, is time to do some DC time

  15. Tom says:

    Please no Skyler Astin. Please no.

  16. I think Justin Timberlake should “bring it on down to CW Town”.

  17. Agent 86 says:

    Neil Patrick Harris or no one. As a fan of theatrics, comic books and villains, surely he would find the time to film two episodes of the CW were accommodating?

  18. Ram510 says:

    Skylar Astin!!!! Perfect casting. Btw why did TBS cancel his show again?? Haven’t had a hit since

  19. Chris says:

    I vote for Joshua Sasse to play the Music Meister!

  20. Laura says:

    Santino Fontana!

  21. Leo says:

    Crap. Now I want four different versions of Music Meisters with Skylar Astin, Aaron Tveit, Jonathan Groff and Chris Daughtry Can it be a twist that Music Meister is a quartet?

  22. Mallory says:

    Matt Bomer, please and thank you!

  23. Jonathan Groff and Darren Criss, will make my day(night). Zachary Levi also a very good choice, love that guy

  24. sandra says:

    I would love it if they cast Darren Criss. He was in Glee with Grant and Melissa but it would also be pretty funny to see him next to Malfoy/Tom Felton (AVPM <3). I like Jonathan Groff and Skylar Astin too. i love Aaron Tveit but I kinda don´t see him in this role. Reeve Carney was awesome in Penny Dreadful I miss that show so much.

  25. I think Charice would be perfect.

  26. Rex the Wonder Dog says:

    It’s the CW. It will probably be somebody pretty like Jonathan Groff or Ne-Yo.
