Jackson flies UFO

11.23.2009

Joshua Jackson has come quite a ways from THE MIGHTY DUCKS teammate and "Dawson's Creek" second fiddle -- now he's in charge of battling extraterrestrials.

Jackson (so great on TV's "Fringe") will star in UFO, the adaptation of the 1970s cult Brit show.

The live-action series from puppeteer Gerry Anderson ("Thunderbirds", "Fireball XL5") followed a secret high-tech organization called SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization, of course) who protect the planet from aliens harvesting human body parts. Comparatively normal from Jackson's "Fringe" duties, really.

Jackson will play SHADO test pilot Paul Foster, and the movie is being directed by FX veteran Matthew Gratzner (IRON MAN, ARMAGEDDON).

Extra Tidbit: I can't lie... THE SKULLS is a guilty pleasure.

Actually i think Joshua Jackson could make it as a leading man.I guess if UFO is a hit well see Space 1999 which i loved as a kid turned into a film.

i hate this guy on fringe. his character is a useless douche bag. i mean, the only reason he exists in the first season is too watch his father (who is a much better character) and while he doing that, all he does is act like dick. oh, except to that bland FBI chick, who has nothing on dana scully.

never heard of the show. It sounds like a cross between X Files and Men In Black. I'm interested!

I honestly believe this past episode of Fringe entitled "August" was the best, if not in the top 3 of the best episodes of the series.
