First major cast member revealed in the hotly tipped comic-book adaptation

Lucy Punch, best known in these parts for playing Sandford resident Eve Draper in Hot Fuzz and the anonymous blonde in Edgar Wright’s Grindhouse trailer Don’t, has been cast as Detective Deena Pilgrim in FX’s forthcoming Powers.

Pilgrim is a rookie cop paired up with Detective Christian Walker in the city’s superhero homicide department.

The pilot episode will be directed by Sons Of Anarchy executive producer Michael Dinner, and the script is by Charles ‘Chic’ Eglee, former executive producer of The Walking Dead, and is expected early 2012.
