Jackson flies UFO
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).
