Following the news that Vanessa Hudgens would play lead character Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who isn't too happy about all the superheroes in the city causing damage, Powerless is moving away from Disney vets and toward nerdy faves. According to TV Line, Community's Danny Pudi and Firefly's Alan Tudyk have both joined the series.
Pudi will play Ted, Emily's pal and coworker who has an affinity for pranks. Tudyk will play Emily's boss Del, a power-hungry man who got his position through nepotism. Also joiningPowerless will be Christina Kirk (A to Z), who will play Del's superhero-loving assistant.
It would take a major bungle for this not to go to series, right?
