maybe this machine, depending on how your cast is, if this hurts, and so on.

I wouldn't risk anything like machine bench presses or anything, the grip could interfere with the healing of the bones.

But, you could possibly also do this.

and this with light weight

I'd also recommend training the other arm still... research has shown this to be effective for maintaining neuromuscular function (and it's beyond unlikely one arm will grow out of proportion to the other in a short time).

^^ x2

Bones healing is a good thing. It means you get to train more in the long run.
