Scott Wolf invades ABC's 'V' remake
Scott Wolf has been cast in ABC's update of the sci-fi classic "V."
In addition, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Silverman and Julie Bowen have also landed pilot leads at ABC.
"V," an update of the '80s miniseries, is set in the future and finds humanity ruled by alien Visitors. The trade paper says that Wolf will play a news anchor who sees propping up the alien cause as a path to career advancement.
Wolf's most recent TV gig was on ABC's "The Nine." He's also starred in "Party of Five" and appeared on "Everwood."
Bowen, meanwhile, will star in "My American Family," which focuses on a "traditional" married couple (Bowen, Ty Burrell), a gay couple and a multiethnic couple.
TV credits for Bowen include "Lost" and "Boston Legal," both on ABC, as well as "Ed."
Silverman ("The Single Guy") is set for ABC's untitled Jeff Strauss comedy pilot, which also focuses on three couples. The "Weekend at Bernie's" star's last regular TV job was on ABC's "In Case of Emergency."
In other casting news courtesy of the same Hollywood Reporter story, Michael O'Keefe, Courtney Henggeler, Frances Turner and Beth Broderick are set for the FOX comedy "Two Dollar Beer," Dania Ramirez, Brad William Henke and Patrick St. Esprit will appear in ABC's untitled Daniel Cerone drama and Tawny Cypress and Sean Bridgers will co-star in CBS' "House Rules."
