Julie Benz to Star in No Ordinary Family

at . Comments

Her character may have been killed off Dexter, but Julie Benz is recovering from that traumatic experience nicely.

She's turned up on Wisteria Lane, recurring over the last few weeks as a stripper named Robin (pictured) on Desperate Housewives.

Now, we can confirm that Benz has landed a major role on the pilot about which we're most excited:

She'll star opposite Michael Chiklis in No Ordinary Family, a drama that revolves around a family that suddenly develops special abilities.

While Heroes has soured us on this general concept, it's impossible not to get psyched for a show that features Chiklis (best known for his role on The Shield, the best series in TV history), Benz and also Autumn Reeser, another TV Fanatic favorite.

On No Ordinaty Family, Benz will play a gifted scientist who develops super speed.
