Vinnie Jones has revealed more details about his new role on upcoming NBC series The Cape.

It was previously announced that the star will play freakish criminal Scales in the superhero drama.

"Scales is the main boss, trying to take over, and he will be trying all different angles to do that," he told SciFiNow. "He's going to be teaming up wherever he can to try to take over Palm City. I think there are lots of things there, with Rollo (Martin Klebba) [and] with Chess (James Frain), that are going to be evolved into the storyline."

Jones also admitted that he was "very happy" with his promotion to series regular status following filming on the pilot episode.

"They came and offered me the deal of a series regular," he explained. "They saw me as a main character in it, which is great really, because I moved over to LA... three years ago to get a TV series."

The Cape will launch with a two-hour premiere on January 9. The first episode will be repeated in the show's regular timeslot at 9/8c the following Monday.
