Martin Henderson has been cast as Mr. Smith in the ABC pilot of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The thriller is based on the film that starred Brangelina about two married assassins hired to kill one another. He will star opposite already announced Jordana Brewster as Mrs. Smith.
Martin is a New Zealand and his credits include The Ring, Bride & Prejudice and Torque.
In other pilot casting news, Kirstie Alley will star in a pilot of “The Minister of Divine” for FOX. The show is based on the British series, The Vicar of Dibley. It centers on a woman (Alley), known for her rebellious younger days, who returns to her small hometown to be a minister.
Ouch, sounds like it’s going to be a truly sour pilot season!
