Michael Clarke Duncan on “Locator” BONES Spin-Off?
If you had to cast the role of a “tough, raw-hide cowboy philosopher” for a potentially high profile new Fox television series, which actor might you cast? Creators of an upcoming Bones spin-off answered that question yesterday by choosing Michael Clarke Duncan for the role of The Locator‘s side-kick. The Locator is the name of the series and the nickname of the title character from two novels by Richard Greener, which follow a former military policeman who can find anything. The lead role of Walter Sherman has yet to be cast, but Duncan is Fox’s “Leo,” his buddy. The project sounds pretty promising to me. TV Line delivered the good news.
Duncan is known for his role as John Coffey in The Green Mile and as The Kingpin in Daredevil. He played a role in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and will play a giant troll in Your Highness (for which we have a trailer now).
The Amazon.com synopsis of the very first Locator novel from Booklist reads this way:
Known to those who can find him as the Locator, Vietnam War veteran Walter Sherman finds the people no one else can–including people who don’t want to be found. When he is approached by a large corporation to find out who is killing off the firm’s executives, Sherman soon discovers that the truth of the matter is far more complicated than he suspected. Greener takes a subject from the business-journalism world–tainted food–and turns it into a rip-roaring thriller. The Locator is an appealing series lead, a reclusive war vet with simple tastes whose highly sought-after abilities as a tracker enable him to pick and choose his cases. The author keeps the thriller format fresh, too, by jumping around chronologically, working the rather complex backstory (the events leading up to the executive assassinations) into the narrative in bits and pieces. Reading the novel is a bit like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Greener is working on the second Locator novel; let’s hope it’s as good as this one. David Pitt
