Watch Hilary Swank, Jodie Foster Audition for ‘Batgirl’ Film

Conan O’Brien continued his streak of star-studded segments in honor of Comic-Con on Thursday, when he opened his show with a sketch featuring a slew of celebrities trying out for the upcoming Batgirl movie.

Hilary Swank, Jodie Foster, Nick Offerman, Thomas Middleditch, Wanda Sykes, Tig Notaro, Maria Bamford, Kristen Schaal and Nicole Byer all vie for the role, with varying degrees of effort, in the clip.

“Hi, I’m Hilary Swank, and this is my audition right here,” Swank says in her audition, brandishing just one of her two Oscars. Foster later attempts to one-up swank by bringing in a “soldier” prop.

Notaro delivered her lines (which were supposed to be “filled with rage,” a person onscreen prompted her) in a consistent deadpan.

At one point, Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), shows up, reading for “Kyle, the waiter in the diner.” When Offerman attempts to audition for Batgirl and is informed that the production is looking for a woman, he says it was the “same bulls— I got on Ocean’s 8.”

DC Entertainment’s development of a Batgirl movie is back on after one-time writer-director Joss Whedon left the project in February. In April The Hollywood Reporter reported that the project was back on, with Bumblebee scribe Christina Hodson writing a script premised on the Barbara Gordon version of the character.

Hilary Swank and her beau Philip Schneider took in all the excitement of the Women’s Final of the French Tennis Open in Paris on Saturday. In the spirit of the occasion the 43-year-old actress wore her ‘tennis whites’ – a little white, knee-length dress that she tied at the waist. The couple, who have been together for a year, were at the Roland Garros Stadium in the French capital to see American Sloane Stephens, 25, take on Simona Halep of Romania, 26.
