Great news for fans of Mark Harmon. He’s set to play the lead in John Sandford’s Certain Prey movie on USA.
The movie will air for the first time Sunday, November 6 at 9pm. No word as yet from USA about whether there will be more Prey movies, but one assumes that if this one does well, they’ll at least consider future episodes. They have twenty novels to choose from, after all, before they have to think about writing their own plots.
I’m a longtime follower of Sanford’s novels. Although I’ve never pictured Davenport as looking like Mark Harmon, the casting isn’t as egregious as, say, Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, so I am willing to give it a shot.
How about you?
Update: Hey, we’ve put up more info, along with the trailer! What do you think?
Updated Update!: We got to interview him in person (with audio) to ask about some of the questions raised in the comments. Hear what Harmon says!
