Helfer joins HUMAN TARGET

BSG actress is guest for opening story

Mania.com has learned that filming of the pilot episode of DC Comics' 'Human Target' is underway right now in Vancouver.

Seen on the set is none other than 'Battlestar Galactica' femme fatale Tricia Helfer.

Our sources tell us that Helfer is not part of the series cast. Rather she's appearing as a major player in the pilot's storyline.

Mark Valley ('Fringe') stars as Christopher Chance, a freelance security expert and master of disguise, who specializes in clients whose lives have been threatened. Chance alters his appearance to serve as a double for the client, inserting himself into their lives to protect them while simultaneously uncovering the plot to kill them.

Chi McBride ('Pushing Daisies') co-stars as Chance's business partner and confidant.   'Watchmen''s Jackie Earle Haley is also on board as Chance's intelligence operative.

The pilot is being filmed for FOX TV. No air date has been scheduled.

I sure wouldn't mind hitting her target. Meooooooow. Just a random thought, but can any of you picture her with dyed dark hair and playing Wonder Woman? Is that reaching or did I miss this discussion boat eons ago?

I think she is a beautiful woman but she looks too thin to play WW.  That Australian model Megan Gale who was cast for the ill-fated JL movie seemed to have more the body type. She came across more athletic and goddess-like. Don't know if she could act, though.

Great cast. I can't wait to see the pilot.

The show could be cool if done right. I'm a big fan of the comics. I hope that Peter Milligan gets a chance to help out a little.

Not to be a douche but her name is Helfer... no S.

Also Monkeyfoot is correct while Tricia is hot, especailly with brown hair, but she would pale in comparison to Megan Gale as Wonder Woman.

Thank you, vinylcharmer. I didn't want to be the only douche that pointed out the extra S... I had the same thought as monkeyfoot. Gale looks the part, but I worry about models trying to act.

Vinylcharmer: GAH! Thanks for save. Not douchey at all. I genuinely thought it was Helfers and didn't fact double-check as I should have.

As punishment, the blonde Cylon in my head will whip me continously for the the rest of the day.

That's punishment?...

fft5305: Yeah I was thinking the same thing about the whole model acting thing too. If the movie was stand alone I would be more worried than in a JLA flick.

Although if they do a stand alone I hope they include Gail Simone and look at the new animated DVD for inspiration since I thought it told the story in a pretty exciting and beleivable way all things considered.
