So does this mean Jackie Earle Haley won’t be playing Freddy Krueger in the upcoming “A Nightmare on Elm Street” remake? I’m not sure, but it does mean “Watchmen’s” Rorschach is going to be a little busy in the coming years. THR announces that Haley has join the cast of the Fox’s Human Target along with Chi McBride .
Human Target is an action TV show based on a DC comic book, and stars Mark Valley as Christopher Chance, a freelancer who saves people who are targets of assassination by assuming their identity. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. I’m glad it’s not me, though. Sheesh, what a way to make a living!
In the show, Haley would play Chance’s “information gatherer” (I think this means he’s the show’s Huggy Bear), while McBride will be Chance’s partner and friend (I think this means he bugs Chance about his job and worries at the office).
