We’ve seen the cast build up for the FX pilot of Powers, and today we learn that Jason Patric has been tapped to play Detective Christian Walker, the hero turned detective with a secret past.
Charles H. Eglee, Michael Dinner, David Engel and Bendis are executive producing for Sony Pictures TV and FX Prods. Filming is slated for mid-summer in Chicago. If Powers goes to series, it will mark Patric’s first regular series gig.
I really hope audience’s interest in cop dramas will push this pilot into a full series. Of course the pilot needs to be really good, so here’s hoping.
And yes, Jason Patric did play Michael in The Lost Boys (1987).
