Jason Patric and Lucy Punch have been cast as as Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim for the Powers pilot in production for FX.
POWERS, the ongoing comic by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, concerns two homicide detectives who must solve crimes involving superhuman with “powers.”
Punch is a Brit actress probably best known here for THE CLASS and about to be seen in BAD TEACHER.
Patric has been in everything. His most recent comic book adaptation experience was in THE LOSERS.
Fan reaction to the Punch casting has been positive, although some have noted that Patric isn’t as bulky as Walker.
