Ben Browder, who played John Crichton in Farscape, is one actor who I just don't see nearly enough of. Sure, after Farscape ended Browder transitioned to Stargate, but I always thought he had an everyman charm that should have launched him to a similar career path as Nathan Fillion. That has yet to happen, but at least we'll soon be able to see a little bit more of him in the web series Naught for Hire.

Naught for Hire will be a 13-episode series about a private investigator in the year 2030. SFX (via Blastr) describes it as:

"A lighthearted sci-fi romp in the style of '30s noir movies, with each episode ending on a cliffhanger, Naught For Hire is about a detective who has issues with modern technology, including a car that is in love with him, an elevator that won't cooperate and an answering machine that wants to do nothing but pull pranks on him."

No release date has been set for the series, which will begin filming soon with co-stars Juliet Landau (Buffy), Chase Masterson (Deep Space Nine) and Jennifer Sky (Cleopatra 2525). You can keep track of the show through their official website and Twitter feed.
