Eddie Izzard Joins Playstation’s Powers Series

EddieIzzardWe’ve got more casting news from the Sony Playstation Network adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s series Powers. Deadline says three new regulars have been cast including popular British actor and comedian Eddie Izzard (Hannibal) to play Wolfe, Christian Walkers former mentor who has been incarcerated for the last two decades and being forced through brutal surgical procedures to keep his powers in check. Wolfe is kind of the bogeyman of the Powers universe.

Also cast is Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones) who will play Johnny Royalle, a criminal mastermind with the ability to teleport and Olesya Rulin (High School the Musical) who will play Calista, a street-smart teenaged power that is always working an angle. In the series pilot the role of Royalle was played by Vinnie Jones and Calista was played by Bailee Madison.

They join Susan Heyward (Deena Pilgrim), Max Fowler (Krispin Stockley), and Adam Godley (Captain Cross). It’s not clear at this time if Jason Patric is still playing Walker as he has not been mentioned in any of the recent announcements.
