Summer 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, is back in action as she’s 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. And fanboys, don’t fret — just because she’s cute doesn’t mean she won’t be kicking-ass.

For those who can’t wait until pilot season, the 29 year old stunner will next be seen in the Lifetime Movie Network film Deadly Honeymoon.
