Hugh Jackman Is The Nowhere Man
Lining up for another comic book film

Hugh Jackman, who is currently filming the further hairy adventures of Wolverine, has just signed taken an interest in another comic book , one that involves no growing of white trash facial hair or people shoving kitchen knives into his knuckles (those things are real, you know).

But Nowhere Man isn't necessarily going to be a film – Jackman is just currently helping produce it. Jackman is working with Marc Guggenheim to create the series for Virgin which, according to Variety's story, features a "protagonist reminiscent of the one Will Smith played in I Am Legend" in a future world where privacy has been traded for safety. There are plans to possibly then turn the comic book into a movie.

Well this is all very meta. Actors now writing the comics? We think this story sounds pretty cool, but does playing a comic book character make you qualified to write one? We once played Herod in the school play, but this did not give us the power to command the slaying of all the country's first born sons. When we tried it, the police really had a few things to say about it. Apparently it was "anti-social" and "really creepy, you weirdo". Well, excuse us for committing to a role.

You used this one headlining the news last week that he will star in Neil Marshall's movie Drive (please Neil cahnge thet title -see my post on the news article page to know why). Surely there are others that's not him being Wolverine. Referring to EVIL BSTD post - there was a US show in the mid 90's called Nowhere Man and it was about a man fighting against a secret agency to get his identity back. It was utter crap and it didn't even go the full 22/24 episodes got cancelled mid way through i More

Wasn't there a tv show called that?
I think it was about a secret agency that erased everything about a mans life they even got all his friends and family to act like they had neve met him. More
