Powers stars Jason Patric as Detective Walker, Lucy Punch as Detective Pilgrim, Bailey Madison as Calista,Carly Foulkes as Retro Girl, Titus Welliver as Triphammer and Charles S. Dutton as the Chief. Powers is scheduled to air sometime later this year on the FX network.
The picture is really just Jason Patric shooting a gun in costume. It’s nothing to be remotely excited about. Except, of course, that positively confirms that Powers is going to be a tv show. And holy shit, it didn’t hit me until this very moment.
Even when the show was announced and casting started to happen (still think Pilgrim should be played by Katee Sackhoff but whatevs) there was a feeling like this wasn’t going to happen. And now it is.
“Powers,” says executive producer and writer Charles Eglee, “is a mashup of genres — like, if you took ‘Se7en’ and smushed it with ‘The Dark Knight.’”
