Sure, the heroes of "Human Target" don't boast any superpowers to speak of — unless you count Christopher Chance's uncanny knack for attracting trouble — but the upcoming Fox television series is still going to be one of the most prominent comic book projects on television in 2010.
The series premiere date of January 17, 2010 is just a few short weeks away, and Fox is understandably rolling out a promotion campaign for "Human Target," which is based on the DC Comics title of the same name. Part of that agenda includes a new photo gallery on Target419.
Mark Valley stars in "Human Target" as Christopher Chance, a work-for-hire security contractor that takes on the dangerous task of protecting clients from would-be assassins. His strategy is simple but deadly — lure the assassin's attention away from the intended victim and onto himself, thereby becoming a "human target."
Chance is assisted by his colleagues Winston and Guerrero, respectively played by Chi McBride and "Watchmen" star Jackie Earle Haley. Tricia Helfer of "Battlestar Galactica" and "Green Lantern: First Flight" fame guest stars in the series premiere.
Personally, I'm pretty excited for this one. It might end up being a little bit corny, but how could anyone argue about seeing Jackie Earle Haley in a new performance every single week? Sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
