‘Powers’ has secured their lead roles


Variety has reported that the up-coming PlayStation television show, Powers, has landed its two leading characters; Sharlto Copley and Michelle Forbes.


Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team) will be playing the role of Christian Walker – dapper and charismatic character with a darkness and violence right at the surface but with a sense of buried integrity. Walker is described as a ‘faded rock star” since he has lost all of his superpowers while in battle with an evil villain. Using his skills and experiences learned from his super hero days, Walker is now a detective.


Michelle Forbes (True Blood, The Killing) will star as Retro Girl – the undisputed super star of the Powers community. Retro Girl has “…a cool, hard exterior with a fire right below the surface. Her willingness to put herself at risk for the good of others is matched only by her ability to manage her globe-spanning personal brand.”

Powers is scheduled to premier on the PlayStation Network this December.
