Vinnie Jones says TV fans should be excited to see his new US show, The Cape.

“I think it’s the second-highest budget for a pilot of all time, it’s like 10 million or something,” the actor revealed in Los Angeles.

Vinnie took a break from filming to take part in a charity football match for Save The Children to help launch Britweek in LA.

“I’ve just finished the pilot actually, [it’s] an action hero TV show for NBC and I think I wore myself out there all week,” Vinnie revealed before the kick-around.

The superhero-themed pilot stars ER’s David Lyons as a cop who is framed for a crime and takes on a masked-hero alter ego in an effort to clear his name.

“I play Scales, I have all this stuff on my face and it is really good!” Vinnie said.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star also has another movie in the works.

“I’m going down to New Orleans probably on Tuesday to do a movie with Christian Slater and Val Kilmer, so I’m busy,” he explained.
