It looks like The Cape’s title superhero will have even more Big Bads to contend with this season.

The Unit’s Michael Irby is joining the freshman NBC drama in the recurring role of Pokerface, a new villain who will be introduced in Episode 9. A high-level associate of Scales (Vinnie Jones), Pokerface is described as “a ghoulish-looking thug dressed in a suit whose face is frozen in an expression of glum murderousness.”

Additionally, actor-rapper Romeo Miller (f.k.a. Lil’ Romeo) has signed on to play Lil’ Z, a baby gansta and a mean, smack-talking chatterbox. He works with Pokerface and ends up confronting him and Scales.

The Cape, which centers on an ex-cop framed for a wave of crimes committed by the evil Chess (True Blood‘s James Frain), got off to a slow start in the ratings last week.

  • The Cape is certainly more fun than most anything else on television. We certainly don’t need another law or cop drama. Those shows are a dime a dozen, while their is nothing else like The Cape on television.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this episode whereas I came away happy, but slightly disappointed by the pilot. I think things just moved more slowly than I expected in the pilot, although I was still plenty entertained, but this episode was thoroughly enjoyable for the fun, pulp entertainment it is. It’s a keeper for me.
