Quite a few years ago, I optioned the rights to comic book JOHN SABLE Created by Mike Grell.
He then set up at intermedia, a movie production studio. And then I got PREDATOR Writer, Stephen DeSouza to write the script. We were approaching Pierce Brosnan to be the lead.
And then intermedia went out of business.
I never lost hope, and then John Sable was set up as a television series on ABC.
I was offered the lead role, to be directed by Gary Sherman, who wrote and directed me in WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE.
My costar was Renée Russo, making her debut as an actress from the modeling world.
During the filming of the pilot episode, I was let go. Either I didn't do a good job, or the upcoming KISS tour prevented me from doing the show. I was probably the wrong guy for the lead role.
Eventually the show went on the air, but only lasted six episodes.
I will revisit this project and see if we can give it a new lease on life.
And now for a few giggles, here is what I looked like as John Sable.
