Sony PlayStation Network’s original series “Powers” has added two villains to its cast and found an actress to play the key role of Calista.
Eddie Izzard (“Hannibal”) has joined the show as Wolfe, a long-time nemesis of lead character Christian Walker, Deadline reports. In the “Powers” comics, the conflict between Wolfe and Walker stretches back thousands of years; in the present, Walker is a former superhero now working as a homicide detective on cases involving Powers. Wolfe has been imprisoned, his abilities kept in check.
Also joining the cast are Noah Taylor (“Game of Thrones,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factor”) as Johnny Royalle, a criminal Power with the ability to blink in and out of places; and Olesya Rulin (“High School Musical”) as Calista, a teenage girl with ties to Walker who’s destined to become a superhero.
“Powers” has yet to cast Walker, but Susan Heyward (“The Following”) is on board as his partner, Deena Pilgrim. The series is set to premiere in December on the PlayStation Network.
