DC's Stargirl Star Joel McHale Promoted to Season 3 Series Regular

So it looks like the mystery surrounding Joel McHale's Sylvester Pembleton aka OG Starman from the OG JSA won't be ending any time soon, with the actor revealing during his time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he had been promoted to series regular beginning with the third season of The CW's DC's Stargirl. Including the pilot, McHale has appeared five times in the series (with a preview of his sixth appearance below). Considering his rather "grave" condition early on in the series, McHale's Sylvester being given more screen time raises so many questions (and possibilities).

Here's a look back at Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show with guest host Arsenio Hall, with McHale dropping the news at around the 7:00 mark ("I'm very happy to be a part of the show, so thank you Geoff Johns who invented it"):

Now here's a look at McHale's next appearance on The CW's DC's Stargirl, this week's episode "Summer School: Chapter Nine":
