Two of televison’s most buzzed about actors are set to join a new ABC pilot. Deadline reports that Milo Ventimiglia and Barry Sloane will play the lead roles in “The Visitors,” produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV.
The show chronicles a race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy set out to destroy the world. “Heroes” and “Gilmore Girls” vet, Ventimiglia, will play John Doe/Drew, a man covered in strange tattoos and diagrams and speaks a strange language.
“Revenge” star Sloane will play Wes, a former FBI agent now with the Special Projects Division of the Defense Department who investigates military threats that are better off solved outside public knowledge.
Also rounding out the cast is “Revolution” alum, Derek Webster.
