“Powers” follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with extraordinary abilities, referred to as “Powers.”

Boyer will play Olympia on one episode with the possibility of recurring. He’s an adored Power superstar who was once the darling of the world. And although he’s still charismatic, Olympia is an aging shell of his former self and has become addicted to sex, drugs and sensation.

Lifetime’s “Army Wives” fans will remember Boyer as Leon “Ski” Wisniewski during Season 6 and 7. His other TV credits include a recent appearance on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” Season 5 premiere, ABC’s “Resurrection” and NBC’s “Revolution.”

Mickey Cole Jr. will play the recurring role of Levitation Boy on at least three episodes. A member of the Powers Kidz, this teen defiantly uses his ability to levitate as a means of rebelling against the law.

Cole Jr. is a newcomer to Hollywood. He may have caught the showbiz bug from his father, actor Michael H. Cole, who played Greg Roberts on BET’s “Being Mary Jane,” and will appear in the upcoming “National Lampoon’s Vacation” reboot.
