Christian Slater's Latest Will Be a Fox Pilot

Two swings, two misses. Will the third strike rule apply if his next project fails to make the cut? Whatever the outcome, you gotta give the guy credit for trying. Today, the Hollywood Reporter reported that Christian Slater's been cast in an Adam Goldberg comedy pilot for Fox.

There's action as well as comedy apparently, with Slater playing the leader of a group called Titan Team, a bunch of young, brilliant security experts. He's ex-military and a maverick. Writer/actor Trevor Moore from 'The Whitest Kids U'Know' is also in the pilot. He's the Don Juan and reconnaissance expert.

This sounds like 'The A-Team' meets 'Leverage' with an under-30 cast -- if you don't count Christian. No word on if Goldberg will be appearing in front of the camera.

There's reasons to assume that Christian Slater might have a better chance with this show than the other two. Fox does tend to have more patience with action-comedy, and if the reports of '24' leaving the network is accurate, Fox will be looking for a replacement.
