Scoop on NBC's new drama 'The Cape' from co-star James Frain: 'It's closer to Batman'


Goodbye Franklin Mott from True Blood, hello super-villain onThe Cape!  EW talked to James Frain on a red carpet recently and the English actor had pretty encouraging things to say about NBC’s upcoming drama involving a cop (Eat Pray Love’s David Lyons) who makes himself into a masked hero after being framed for a crime. NBC has yet to schedule the drama, which is slated for a midseason release.

"It’s a superhero show and I play the supervillain," Frain told EW. "It’s not that big a stretch. No one has any real powers. It’s about cunning and skill. It’s very serious in its intent. But it’s also light in the way it’s played. It is closer to Batman in that the people don’t have powers. Supervillain equals job security as long as people like the show and we get picked up."
