Sharlto Copley. That’s all you need to know.
That thing, that nobody wanted to be a thing, is now a thing. And by that I mean people actually care about exclusive television shows that are being made by people who predominantly make tech and video games.
Sony have teased footage for their first official original show Powers and it does look pretty good. This bloke was a hero, he could fly (which makes him cool right off the bat) and he was above the law. And no, he’s not Superman.
Now, if you recognize this chap, then props to you because it’s the one and only Sharlto Copley! You should already know that he has got some serious acting chops. Plus he sports a mean beard. And putting him in the shoes of a disillusioned, now powerless “power” is one of the roles that he is going to slay. As much as it pains me to say this, Powers looks like it could go the distance and become something very good indeed.
