If we were skeptical about FOX’s pilot “Human Target” before, consider us firmly on-board now.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the DC Comics adaptation has added Jackie Earle Haley and Chi McBride to its cast.

Mark Valley is already set to star in the Simon West-directed pilot, which focuses on a mysterious freelancer who takes the place of people in danger, becoming a human target.

The trade paper says that Haley will play the main character’s key information gatherer, while McBride will play his business partner and friend.

Haley plays Rorschach in this weekend’s highly anticipated “Watchmen.” An Oscar nominee for “Little Children,” he’s also fondly remembered for “Bad News Bears.”

McBride was most recently seen on “Pushing Daises” and “The Nine” for ABC. He’s no stranger to FOX, though, having co-starred on “Boston Public” and “Killer Instinct” (a show he’s often referred to as “Kill It, It Stinks”) and in an multi-episode arc on “House.” To us, though, he’ll always be the title character from “The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer.”
