Emmanuelle Vaugier has been tapped for the title role in Sci Fi Channel’s two-hour pilot Painkiller Jane, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Painkiller Jane, from NBC Universal TV and MGM TV, is based on the Event Comics’ series about Jane, a young Marine officer who gains self-healing powers when she is exposed to a biochemical weapon.
Walker Howard also is cast in the pilot.
Vaugier had recurring roles on the WB Network hits Smallville and “One Tree Hill” and co-starred on the network’s short-lived series “My Guide to Becoming a Rock Star.”
Her feature credits include “Secondhand Lions” and “40 Days and 40 Nights.”
