ABC's Alien Drama 'The Visitors' Abducts 'AHS' Vet Lily Rabe in Starring Role


Lily Rabe has nabbed a role that is quite literally out of this least to some extent. The 'American Horror Story' actress has decided to add an extraterrestrial aspect to her impressive resume by joining the cast of ABC's alien invasion drama pilot 'The Visitors.'

Produced by Steven Spielberg, the series will chronicle a race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy that's out to destroy the world using one Earth's most precious resources: children. (And here you thought you only had to worry about 'AHS' giving you nightmares, right?)

For her part, Rabe will star as Claire Bennigan — a dogged child specialist with the FBI, who is investigating a string of strange cases involving children and their imaginary friend “Drill.”

Both her intuition and compassion into the child’s mind are considered to be her “superpowers.” However, her abilities as both a mother and an agent will be put to the test when she makes the devastating discovery that her own 7-year-old son, Henry, is in the Enemy’s clutches.

Rabe is just the latest addition to an already intriguing cast. 'Revenge's Barry Sloane and 'Heroes' vet Milo Ventimiglia have also landed starring roles in the series. (Take us to your hunky leader, indeed!)

Meanwhile, 'Under the Dome' scribe Soo Hugh will pen the script and noted video director Mark Romanek is set to helm the pilot.
