WBTV has Mark Valley in the cross hairs as the lead actor in their 'Human Target' pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Valley has turned up as an occasional guest on ABC's 'Fringe' playing the is-he-or-isn't-he-dead boy friend of agent Oliva Dunham. Prior to that he was a regular on 'Boston Legal', although many fans sill fondly recall his starring turn in the short-lived 'Keen Eddie' show.
The pilot is being filmed by WBTV, DC Comics and McG's Wonderland. The premise finds Valley's character Christopher Chance as a mysterious security consultant who protects at-risk clients by assuming their identities.
The concept was previously adapted to TV in the early 1990s. One hurdle the previous show had difficulty overcoming was the fact that the leading man (then Rick Springfield) would have relatively little screen time. Once Chance went undercover, the character was played by that week's guest actor and Springfield would sit on the bench.
What do you think? Is 'Human Target' a show you're looking forward to? How do you like his casting?
