ABC Bag Revenge/Heroes Stars For The Visitors

Well, they do and here are the actors in question, they've snagged for sci-fi pilot titled The Visitors (not to be confused with that John Corbett show from the 1990's I assume).

Barry Sloane, best known for his roles in Hollyoaks and recently as Aiden Mathis in the second and third seasons of Revenge has been cast as Wes, an ex-FBI agent who now works for a secret department, taking on classified missions to protect the public. This probably doesn't bode well for fans of Aiden Mathis but does seem like a good opportunity though for Sloane. The series, produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin TV - follows the human race's fight to thwart an unseen alien menace out to destroy the Earth.

Also cast is Milo Ventimiglia, best known for his roles in both Heroes and recently, Mob City. Ventimiglia will play the role of will play the mysterious John, who speaks in a strange language and is covered in mysterious tattoos and diagrams. The pilot will be by Soo High (Under The Dome) and directed by Mark Romanek (Never Let Go). This could have potential, provided it doesn't veer too much into the usual stuff we see with these type of sci-fi shows though.

Press Release:

Filming for The Visitors begins soon.
