Christian Slater Could Spy for NBC in the Fall

Christian Slater: suburban dad who just happens to be a spy?

That's the crux of a new show that NBC is reportedly close to ordering for the Fall TV season. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show, which was originally developed as a feature film for Fox, "is described as The Bourne Identity meets Jekyll & Hyde and centers on a mild-mannered suburban dad (Slater) who learns that his alter ego is a spy."

The series would be Slater's first full-time TV role, though he's had guest spots on The West Wing and My Name is Earl, among others. Jason Smilovic, the potential series' writer-producer, worked previously on Bionic Woman, Kidnapped, and Karen Sisco.

Some speculation: To me, the show sounds like a combo of elements from a couple of other NBC series: the spy dramedy of Chuck and the alternate-lives aspects of the now-canceled Journeyman. Journeyman didn't end up being a good companion for Chuck and Heroes — so maybe the network is hoping this show would be a better fit on Monday nights come Fall?

I just noticed that his face is unbelievably small. :( I hope the show does well. Those two statements are unrelated.

Good for him. I had a crush on him when I was very young. He was my first favorite actor. :-D
