Terry O'Quinn To Invade Falling Skies

Terry O'QuinnThe first season of the Steven Spielberg produced alien invasion drama Falling Skies was a huge success for TNT, with another batch of episodes being greenlit almost immediately. Now, sci-fi fans have a new reason to rejoice and tune in this summer as Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Terry O'Quinn has signed on for a two-episode arc on the hit show's upcoming second season. O'Quinn is of course best known for portraying "John Locke" on the 2000's phenomenon known as Lost, and is coming of a very well recieved stint on the reboot of Hawaii 5-0 for CBS.

O'Quinn's character will be a former history professor and mentor to Noah Wyle's lead character of "Tom Mason", and is scheduled to appear in the final two episodes of the season. Beyond that, no further details have been released about just where he fits in the grand scheme of the 2nd Mass.

This is a big-time casting get for TNT, as O'Quinn's name carries a lot of weight with fans of the genre. He's guest starred in countless TV series (The X-Files, Star Trek:TNG, Tales From The Crypt, Alias, Roswell, etc.), and of course was a regular on the aforementioned Lost and played Peter Watts on the fondly remembered Chris Carter series Millennium. Now if only we could get him cast on Person Of Interest and have some real fun.

Falling Skies Title

Falling Skies was cable's #1 new show in 2011, and with casting news like this, I wouldn't look for it to hit any kind of a sophomore slump in 2012. Are you excited about this announcement? Will you be watching when Falling Skies makes contact again this summer?
