Here at KSiteTV, we had gotten tweets that fans of Australian Legend Of The Seeker actor Craig Horner wanted him for Green Arrow for The CW’s Arrow… while that didn’t happen, he does have a pilot on the way from the network.
Deadline revealed today that Horner will be playing the lead role in a CW pilot titled Joey Dakota, about a doomed rockstar from the 1990’s who falls in love with a time-displaced documentary filmmaker from the present day. We thought The Secret Circle’s Grey Damon would have been a good choice, but this one is quite good as well – now if only the TV gods had listened to our “Bridget Regan as Wonder Woman” pleas!
Either way, the casting of Horner should bring attention to this project, which is scheduled to begin shooting in Vancouver March 28. Production charts list the title as simply Dakota which, although not very descriptive, doesn’t give off the same Hannah Montana vibe. We’ll see what they ultimately stick with.
