Christian Slater Joins NBC Series

Christian Slater is said to be joining a TV series with NBC, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The new series comes from writer Jason Smilovic (Bionic Woman) and is being touted as a mix of The Bourne Identity and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Slater, 38, will play a mild-mannered suburban dad who learns that his alter ego is a spy.

This will be Christian‘s first TV series but he’s had guest arcs on NBC’s The West Wing and ABC’s Alias.

    Christian Slater no longer looks like Christian Slater. He’s somewhere between a llama and a Baldwin and I’m kind of scared.

  • [☆F a m o u s☆]

    before you blink this will be canceled

  • Justina

    His eyebrows are scary, but I think he’s still kinda sexy. I fell in love with him in Heathers, but I don’t know what really happened to him since then. He’s lost a lot of it, but he’s stil pretty attractive to me

  • Tracy

    What’s up botox!!!!!!!!!

  • Jessica

    face lift much?

  • Logan

    Wow, he got scary looking.

  • pipi

    enough with the botox already.

  • anonymous

    I think I never saw him in anything

  • oakling

    So wait, this character will be multiple (like Sybil or Herman’s Head)? This is entirely bizarre to me, because in real life the CIA has a long history of trying to make people be multiple on the theory that they could make super-spies like this, who could never turn on them because they wouldn’t remember the spy thing in their daytime lives. (Creepy but true, and involving a lot of REALLY stupid and horrible experiments on people.) And now it’s evening entertainment….

  • Lilyanne

    I’m glad others have commented on his altered looks. Saves me the time. WOW!

  • Jo

    Holy Botox Batman!

  • ss794

    Sounds like a rip-off of “A Long Kiss Goodnight” with Geena Davis.
    You would think with 3 months off that the writers would be more original.

  • Tiger

    Ewww he is just plain scary looking. What the heck did he do to his eyebrows? Yuck!!

  • Marieme

    Botox much? Geez! What a turd and tool.

  • Marieme

    Okay, you guys are hysterical!!! OMG. I just read through these after commenting – sorry for repeating the botox joke. What can you say after looking at those brows though, huh?

    Comment 2 – I’m still rolling! Har! ;D

  • dan’s mom

    hollywood guys don’t normally go this route until they’re way into middle age–he used to be very cute. wow, he should get in touch with helen mirren, and learn how to age gracefully!

  • mel

    Frozen in Time!!!! Yikes!

    What are these Hollywood peeps doing? Is it really worth it when it that obvious?

  • me

    botoxic :))))

  • justa mia

    I really liked him in Broken Arrow, 3000 Miles to Graceland and Murder in the First (great film). He shoulda been a bigger star – probably got into booze, drugs and ego. tooooo bad and now he looks freaking awful. Sad, sad, sad.

  • la

    I was never a fan of Christian but since watching “He was a Quiet Man” I think he has great talents, he was remarkable! Check out the movie people!

  • WHAT?!

    How the hell is he only 38?! He looks in his 40′s. Guess that’s the botox look for you. People think it makes them look younger.

  • BettyCracker

    Could it be Hair Plugs & Facelift & Botox???. . . .Something sure has made him appear quiet un-natural. . . .Why don’t all these Hollywood actor and actresses just get fitted for life like masks made of silicon or resin and save themselves a lot of money and pain. . .at least they could take them off. . .

  • Stagelefty

    CS took same eyebrow stencil workshop as Carrot Top!!! Hardly the same cute kid I saw live on stage lisping his way thru ‘Wells Fargo Wagon’ almost 30 years ago… I watch little on NBC, but I may have to give him a chance

  • Sandbitch

    Proof you don’t need looks to make $ out of hollywood.

  • jose bertolero

    Whatever happened to this guy´s face????????

  • Trine

    Ugly thing I’ve ever seen… yuck

    Hey Slater,

    Zhang Ziyi said most of the euros and dollar bills were fake. Celebrities gave empty pledges. Therefore, the big show put on May 2008, with Sichua earthquake as your backdrop, resulted in ZERO on Zhang’s Foundation. That is why the earthquake survivors today have not received a penny from your buddy Zhang.

    What a show! You and Ziyi benefited big time in the global news media. You guys used the earthquake victims as your supporting actors. Please at least have some decency and gave the money to the victims!

    What a prick!
