T-Mobile actress cast in 'Powers' pilot

Canadian model and actress Carly Foulkes has reportedly joined the cast of FX pilot series Powers.

The T-Mobile commercial star is believed to have been cast as Retro Girl, a celebrity superheroine whose death serves as the main catalyst for the crime series.

"A couple of weeks ago we cast a woman named Carly Foulkes to be Retro Girl," Powers creator Brian Michael Bendis told Sirius Radio Show Geektime. "You're sitting there going, 'Who's that?' That is the super, super cute T-Mobile girl."

Powers follows police detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim as they investigate crimes committed by people with superhuman powers.

Earlier this week Narc star Jason Patric was cast as Walker, while Bad Teacher actress Lucy Punch was cast as Pilgrim.

Despite the early death of Retro Girl in the series, the character plays a key part; her history is slowly explored, revealing close ties to several other main characters.

The series will also star Charles S. Dutton as police department head Captain Cross, and child actress Bailee Madison as Walker's young ward Calista.

Powers will begin filming this summer in Chicago.
