Watchmen star Jackie Earle Haley is taking on another comic book role as he’s been hired to co-star in Fox’s drama pilot “Human Target.”
“Pushing Daisies” alum Chi McBride also has been cast in project, based on the DC Comics title.
The WBTV-produced “Target” centers on Christopher Chance (Mark Valley), a mysterious freelancer who offers a unique form of security for hire: He assumes the identities of people in danger, becoming the “human target” on behalf of his clients.
Haley will play Chance’s information gatherer, who keeps his ear to the ground.
McBride will play Chance’s business partner and friend.
