[post-album postid="11477" item="1"]Lucy Punch has been selected to play the female lead, Deena Pilgrim, in the FX drama pilot "Powers" despite the fact that Katee Sackhoff exists. Pilgrim is a tough-as-nails rookie on a police task force that investigates crimes committed by and/or against "Powers" aka "super-powered individuals."

She joins the previously cast Charles S. Dutton, who will be portraying Captain Cross. The role of Deena Pilgrim's partner, the gruff veteran Christian Walker has yet to be cast but an offer has gone out to Super 8's Kyle Chandler, who is still considered a long shot. If the show is anything like the graphic novel series on which it is based, we're in for some awesome television. PLEASE let this be awesome. (Deadline)
