In casting news for one of the most anticipated pilots this fall, Jason Patric is in negotiations to star as detective Christian Walker in the FX paranormal cop drama "Powers," based on a comic series of the same name.

The series contemplates a police division tasked with investigating the crimes committed by those with supernatural powers. The pilot will focus on the murder of a celebrity who also had supernatural powers, a case that Walker is determined to solve "even if it costs him his badge." Loose cannon, city turned into a war zone, mayor up for re-election, etc.

Just yesterday, Lucy Punch was announced for the role of Deena Pilgrim,Walker's partner. Charles S. Dutton (Roc!) and Bailee Madison are also on board.
