'V' Gets Its First Visitor!


ABC's V pilot has cast its first Visitor.  The good old Hollywood Reporter says that Morris Chestnut will star as the boyfriend of the female lead – a Homeland Security agent who is heading up the alien taskforce.  The female lead has not been cast yet.  The agent does not know her boyfriend is a Visitor, one of the alien race intent on enslaving humanity.  Sounds like a case for Dr. Phil.  

The pilot, produced by Warner Bros., is based on the 1980s TV miniseries and series.  Chestnut's credits include Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid and The Cave.  Interesting fact: one of Chestnut's first acting roles was in an episode of the short-lived syndicated TV series Freddy's Nightmares.
