T-Mobile Girl Carly Foulkes Gets Dialed Into ‘Powers’


Canadian model/actress Carly Foulkes is the pretty brunette currently seen across the country shilling T-Mobile’s myTouch 4G on TV and billboards. But, that may soon change. The leggy 5-foot-9, 22-year-old babe has scored her first major acting role on the FX superhero pilot “Powers.”

Show creator Brian Michael Bendis told the folks at Geektime radio on Sirius XM Howard 100 that Foulkes had been cast to play Retro Girl, the murdered heroine whose case is being investigated by “Powers” detectives Christian Walker (Jason Patric) and Deena Pilgrim (Lucy Punch).

Said Bendis:

A couple of weeks ago, we cast a woman named Carly Foulkes to be Retro Girl. You’re sitting there going, ‘Who’s that?’ That is the super, super cute T-Mobile girl.

The first arc details the death of Retro Girl, a popular and powerful super-heroine. Retro Girl is in fact a legacy of women – with or without powers – who are continuously reincarnated.

“Powers” is the name of the civilian police force assigned to investigating crimes involving people with super powers. The pilot, directed by Michael Dinner (”The Wonder Years”) and penned by Charles Eglee (”Dark Angel”), is based on the comic book series created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

“Powers” is slated to go into production late next month in Chicago.
