‘Human Target’ Season Two Adds Indira Varma And Janet Montgomery To Cast

When “Human Target” returns this fall, there will be two significant cast additions joining Mark Valley’s Christopher Chance.

Indira Varma will join the full time cast as Ilsa Pucci, a newly widowed billionaire who is aided by Chance after the murder of her husband. Following the end of her case, she offers to become the benefactor of Chance and his partners Winston (Chi McBride) and Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley), essentially becoming the owner of their protection agency as well as providing access to nearly unlimited resources and personal connections around the world.

Varma may best be known for her roles as Niobe in “Rome” and as Suzie Costello on “Torchwood.” She has also appeared on “Luther,” “3 lbs.,” “Little Britain” and “The Whistleblowers” in addition to starring in “Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love,” “Canterbury Tales” and “Bride and Prejudice.”

Janet Montgomery will also be joining the cast in a recurring role as Ames, an expert thief who has crossed paths with Winston during his days as a police officer. Ames reportedly accepts a job from Winston with their protection agency in order to get her life back on track.

Montgomery has previously appeared in direct-to-DVD films like “The Hills Run Red” and “Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead” before she landed a role in director Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming film, “Black Swan.” Montgomery is also currently appearing in a recurring role on “Entourage.”

The second season of “Human Target” will hit Fox on Friday, September 24.
