Fox’s Human Target Has Snagged Jackie Earl Haley

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 3:04 pm,

Former child star Jackie Earl Haley (most recently known for portraying Rorschach in Zach Snyder’s Watchmen) has been cast to co-star in the up and coming Fox series Human Target.  Haley will be joined by co-star and Pushing Daisies alum, Chi McBride.

Human Target is based on the DC comic of the same name about an enigmatic freelancer, Christopher Chance (Mark Valley), who provides a very specialized form of personal security by assuming the identity of his client in order to shield them from harm.  Thereby becoming the literal “human target.”

Haley is tapped to play Chance’s contact and information gatherer.  McBride will play Chance’s business partner and friend.  This will be another Warner Brothers project for both.

  1. Hey, I remember the original series starring Rick Springfield!! It was pretty cool, and the way they tried to make him impersonate his clients was way, way more realistic than Mission Impossible.

    They had to run a scan of both Chance’s and his client’s face to see how well the features match before proceeding to create the rubber masks.. and he had to modify his vocal cord to sound like his client. Pretty cool.

    But I remember this scene when his flying wing aircraft (that looks like a B2 bomber) busted him out of jail by hovering above and lowering a rope ladder. That was quite cheesy and unrealistic. And it was pretty far-fetched that all this technology and that personal VTOL flying wing were all financed privately from his income as a human target..
