Summer Glau moves to 'The Cape'
THR EXCLUSIVESummer Glau is back.
Glau, who has probably starred in more cult sci-fi series than any other actress, with stints on Fox's "Firefly," "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Dollhouse," has joined NBC's superhero-themed drama pilot "The Cape" in a leading role.
In the pilot, directed by Simon West, a former cop (David Lyons) is set up as a criminal and becomes a masked hero, the Cape, to clear his name.
Glau will play Orwell, a cute and intrepid investigative blogger who fearlessly goes after corrupt cops and costumed bad guys.
Glau will next be seen in the Lifetime Movie Network film "Deadly Honeymoon."
