The Cape – Lil’ Romeo and Michael Irby join Villain Gallery
A superhero is only as good as the Rogue’s Gallery that he squares off against, and TV Line says The Cape is throwing a couple of new baddies into the mix to hopefully shake things up a bit.
Michael Irby (The Unit) will be introduced in episode 9 as Pokerface, a recurring character described as “a ghoulish-looking thug dressed in a suit whose face is frozen in an expression of glum murderousness,” who happens to be an associate of pretty-boy Scales.
Romeo Miller, the actor/rapper formerly known as Lil’ Romeo will also be joining the new show as Lil’ Z. Think they could have used just a little more imagination on that name? Lil’ Z is a bad guy, but he might not be a bad, bad guy. He hooks up with Scales and Pokerface to take part in some nefarious deeds but the “mean, smack-talking chatterbox” might come to odds with his allies in crime.
Do I possibly sense a sidekick being lined up? Maybe the bargain-basement Batman is about to get a mouthy Robin-type protégé as a partner, or maybe Lil’ Z just won’t be around that long.
While she might not technically classify as a villain, Illeana Douglas will also be making an appearance as a nurse who locks horns with Orwell (Summer Glau).
The new NBC superhero series airs on Mondays at 9/8C and seems to be taking a little time to find an audience. It’s definitely a little cheesy but I think it has a charm all it’s own and I’m hoping The Cape doesn’t have the plug pulled before having a chance to find it’s footing.
