Vanessa Hudgens, color me impressed.
Girl’s really stepped up to the plate in terms of her career, which in recent years has been a lot of crap movies and a couple musical things. She really shined in Grease: Live!, and it paid off because she was just cast in NBC’s DC Comics comedy pilot Powerless, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Hudgens will play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves her job and kinda flies under the radar. Still, the character finds herself increasingly exasperated by all the shenanigans of the various superheroes in her city. Powerless is a single-camera workplace comedy is set at one of the worst insurance companies in America/ the universe of DC Comics. The project is about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains.
Should Powerless get picked up, it’ll mark Hudgens’ first regular TV role which also seems strange. I mean, I hope it gets picked up. Just make sure you don’t leave her alone by any ancient rocks when it does.
