TV: ‘Friday Night Lights’/’Super 8’ Star Courted for ‘Powers’

FX is courting Kyle Chandler (who can be seen in J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 on June 10) for the lead role in its violent drama pilot “Powers,” reports Variety.

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, based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, “centers on a pair of detectives who deal with cases involving people with superpowers.” The result is a whole lotta bloodshed.

Script was written by Charles “Chic” Eglee and Michael Dinner directs the pilot.
