Christian Slater in Talks to Join ABC's The Forgotten

Christian Slater Could Take Over Lead in The Forgotten

So My Own Worst Enemy didn't work out so well for Christian Slater, but that hasn't deterred the actor from taking another stab at TV. Slater is now in negotiations to star in ABC's Fall drama series The Forgotten.

The drama, from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, focuses on a group of amateur investigators who try to track down people who go missing. Slater would play the group's leader, a former cop whose young daughter was kidnapped.

ABC picked up the series at May's Upfronts, but the network later decided to find new actors for two roles — including the lead, which initially went to British actor Rupert Penry-Jones. The role of the group's female leader, originally played by Reiko Aylesworth, is also being recast.

After the jump, you can see a trailer for The Forgotten with its original cast. Do you think Slater would be a good fit — and would he get you to watch? To see the clip, just read more.
