In My Own Worst Enemy (premieres Monday, Oct. 13, 10 pm/ET, NBC), Christian Slater plays two roles: Henry Spivey, a mild-mannered, suburban dad who travels a lot for work and wishes he had more time for his family, and Edward Albright, a dashing international operative who works for a top-secret intelligence agency. The catch: They share a body, and are unaware of the other's existence, initially anyway. In the pilot episode, titled "Breakdown," a malfunctioning computer chip inside Henry/Edward's head starts to "flip the switch" at inopportune moments, giving the two men unwelcome glimpses into the lives of their very different alter egos. Slater tells us why he decided to do a TV show, the difference between playing the two characters, and why people shouldn't worry about this show's resemblance to Joss Whedon's Dollhouse.
