Who better to lead the resistance against an alien invasion than… Noah Wyle. The former ER star has been cast in TNT’s new pilot. The series comes from DreamWorks Television and is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Robert Rodat.

Wyle has been cast to play the leader of a group of military people and civilians who are struggling to survive against the aliens who have taken over the planet and wiped out most of the human population.

“Noah Wyle is an incredibly talented actor and also an extraordinary person, so we’re proud to work with him again,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “It’s also great to collaborate with an amazing production team headed by Steven Spielberg on what is certain to be a compelling and provocative series.”

“It is a privilege to be starting a second series with Noah,” Spielberg said. “The first didn’t do too bad.” Steven Spielberg was one of the people behind ER, and yeah, I think it’s safe to say that show was a success. We’ll have to see if this new TNT series holds up as well with Wyle in the lead.
