The first time I remember seeing Christian Slater was in the 1985 classic The Legend of Billie Jean. Oh yeah, Helen Slater’s one great movie. He was her younger brother Binx, and I just loved him to death. I was nine years old, and begged my mom to cut my hair short like Billie Jean. My mom said no...

Mr. Slater of course has been in tons of other movies, including Interview With A Vampire, and as the unforgettable Arkansas Dave Rudabaugh in Young Guns II. He’s appeared in tv shows - The West Wing, Alias, and long ago in Ryan’s Hope.

His fabulous talent has recently been tapped to star in a new NBC drama which is either without a title, or it’s being held tightly to their collective chests. Or maybe it's not a done deal yet. Hollywood Reporter describes the show 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.

Apparently it’s been a major effort to get him to agree to appear on the small screen as a permanent gig. I, for one am glad, he’s a great actor, who hasn’t had a big project in awhile. The good actor’s always deserve a second chance.
