Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz – together at last

Julie Benz and Michael Chiklis

Michael Chiklis (The Shield, Fantastic Four) and Julie Benz (Buffy, Dexter) are filming a superhero pilot together for ABC called no Ordinary Family, in which Chiklis plays a police artist who develops superpowers; Benz plays his wife, a gifted scientist who develops super speed.

As you do.

I’ll be watching it, for Benz at least, assuming it makes it to series. But here’s a pic from on set. Ain’t Twitter marvellous?

PS NBC, as well as potentially having Heroes still, is also working on The Cape, so that could be as many as three superhero shows on primetime, mainstream US TV in the Fall. How odd is that?
