She's one of those girls that are horrible as actresses, but always get good TV deals because they are the main stars of every geek's dreams, and thus attract the very faithful audience. And as such Summer Glau is moving on - according to "The Hollywood Reporter", after becoming sf diva through her roles in "Firefly", "Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Dollhouse", she has scored a role in a new NBC pilot "The Cape".
The series will revolve around an ex-cop (David Lyons) who is framed as a criminal, so he hits the streets as the costumed hero The Cape in order to clear his name. Glau will play an investigative blogger who tenaciously goes after crooked cops and masked villains... and has no problem getting physical as well.
And admit it, guys, you would gladly get under her umbrella, wouldn't you? :)
