Vinnie JonesVinnie Jones will be joining the NBC drama series The Cape as a hideously freakish villain with green and gold scales. Jones has been a movie star up to this point with titles under his belt like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. He's best known for his role of The Juggernaut in the third X-Men movie of the franchise, which included the immortal line "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch". This line, in my opinion, at least ranks ahead of the simple informative "I'm Batman.'

In an age where many movie stars are going to television, it's a sign of the times that actors like Jones make this move. If The Cape ends up taking off, it could be a good career move for him. However, the premise - which you can read in full after the jump -- sounds a bit like Kick-Ass without the cute little girl to make things amusing. But Summer Glau is among the cast so there is some hope for the show.
