“If you could have one superpower, what would it be?” It’s a query we ask and have been requested a billion instances. And whereas the most typical solutions are issues like “super strength” or “flight” or “invisibility,” the upcoming present Poker Face throws a brand new one into the combination: what in case you might inform, undoubtedly, if an individual is mendacity?
Created by Rian Johnson (Knives Out, The Last Jedi) and Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll, American Pie), Poker Face is a brand new present coming to Peacock beginning on January 26. It’s not introduced as a superhero present by any means—it’s rather more in tune with one thing like Columbo or Kojak—however there’s no denying that the principle character, Charlie (performed by Lyonne), has a superpower. And she makes use of it to resolve a brand new homicide each week. Johnson wrote and directed a number of episodes of the present, which includes a dynamite roster of expertise. Check out the most recent trailer.
As we mentioned, although Charlie has a really cool, unexplained energy, the present is on no account introduced as such. It’s bought a really distinct, Seventies vibe. Like one thing you’d discover on TV whenever you have been a child on a Saturday afternoon. However, with Johnson’s apparent skill to inform a cool, twisty-turny story, and this solid, expectations couldn’t be greater for this very cool-looking present.
And, because of the press launch, we have now this wild record of that solid, most of whom solely seem in a single episode. Check this out, in alphabetical order: Adrien Brody, Angel Desai, Audrey Corsa, Benjamin Bratt, Brandon Michael Hall, Charles Melton, Chelsea Frei, Cherry Jones, Chloë Sevigny, Clea DuVall, Colton Ryan, Danielle MacDonald, Dascha Polanco, Ellen Barkin, Hong Chau, Jasmine Aiyana Garvin, Jameela Jamil, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Judith Light, Leslie Silva, Lil Rel Howery, Luis Guzmán, Megan Suri, Niall Cunningham, Nicholas Cirillo, Nick Nolte, Reed Birney, Rhea Perlman, Ron Perlman, Rowan Blanchard, S.
