FX Thinks Super 8 / Friday Night Lights Star Kyle Chandler Has Powers

Kyle Chandler, PowersIt’s been a while since last we had any news regarding casting for upcoming genre TV shows (about 35 seconds to be exact) so we figured we’d take this time to dose you on news straight from the boob tube.

According to Variety FX is courting Kyle Chandler (pictured right; Super 8) for the lead role in its pilot “Powers.”

The “Friday Night Lights” star had a meeting with the cabler’s execs recently and is considering the role. Sources emphasize that Chandler had made no commitment to “Powers” beyond the initial meeting.

The pilot is based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming and centers on a pair of detectives who deal with cases involving people with superpowers.

The script was written by Charles “Chic” Eglee (“The Walking Dead”), and Michael Dinner (“Justified”) directs the pilot. More soon!
