Henderson, repped by WME and Management 360, already has headlined two ABC pilots: 2007’s Mr and Mrs Smith, in which he played the male lead, and last season’s Inside the Box, in which he played the male heartthrob. He also recently starred in Battle in Seattle, a film based on the WTO Ministerial Conference of 1999 protest activity.
