Before he saved lives as John Carter in “ER,” and saved the world as Tom Mason in “Falling Skies,” Noah Wyle was a struggling actor in L.A. But when times were toughest, he was sustained by “Blind Faith” — the 1990 NBC TV movie, that is. The one that earned him his first mention in Variety.
Do you recall seeing your name in the publication?
I do, because my mother framed it. It was pretty huge. Variety looms large in my house.
What do you remember about the role?
To quote my grandfather, who sat through three hours of that movie, “I had to watch a lot of ‘Blind Faith’ to watch a little bit of Noah.” It was not a big coup, but it was my SAG card. Somebody told me you had to say seven words to get into SAG. My line was, “What’s going on down there? »

It’s hard to condense four seasons of alien invasions, drone warfare, and dystopic bloodshed into 30 seconds, especially when the aliens in said show go by the decidedly cutesy name of “Skitters.”
But at Comic-Con, EW recruited Falling Skies cast members Noah Wyle and Maxim Knight to summarize the last four seasons of the sci-fi show with the best of their capabilities in the time allotted, which might shed more light on whether things can ever look up in this dark, extraterrestrial world (probably not).

If a show actively has characters lampshading decisions, does it still count? Falling Skies, which typically opts for the happiest of all choices in the end, even when it comes to betrayal, had a character from Matt's past return in a big way this week. While Tom, Cochise, Anne, Weaver, and Matt—you know, the most important people in Charleston and the leadership of the Second Mass—are off looking for a cache of Volm weapons, Mira runs into them on the road. She spins an implausible story about how she graduated from the camp but just happened to run into them on the road and that she's thrown her Espheni dog whistle away, but Tom and Weaver see through it pretty instantly. »
Without a doubt, Doug Jones is one of our favorite actors. The personable, prolific performer always has some interesting projects to talk about, and he recently sat down with Dread Central to discuss some current and future endeavors.
Jones began by describing an intriguing new movie series. Space Command: Redemption is the first installment in a proposed franchise.
"It's an original piece by writer/director Mark Zicree, who has such a pedigree in writing for film and television in the science fiction genre," Jones said, "a hugely decorated writer who has written for everything from "Star Trek: Incarnation" to "Babylon 5" and beyond. So there's elements of all that. It's got all the trappings of a science fiction show that takes place in space, but it also has a warm, heartfelt soul that's unlike anything I've read and I think that's what attracted me to it.

Ray Willmott reviews the first episode of Falling Skies Season four…
It’s rare for a Sci-Fi show to see life past its first season these days, but Falling Skies has definitely earned its stripes, continuing to improve year on year. Aliens, known as Skitters, have unexpectedly attacked Earth, leaving it in tatters and ruins, forcing humanity to fend for themselves in the aftermath. The show follows Tom Mason (played by Noah Wyle), his children, the 2nd Massachusetts regiment with Captain Weaver and a group of unlikely allies headed by Pope, as they fight for survival against Earth’s most fearsome enemy. In their fight against the Skitters, allegiances are made, betrayals are rife and friends and enemies are lost and won on the battlefield.
In ‘Ghost in the Machine’, the group think they’ve finally reached some sort of safety. After travelling through one battlefield after another, they are »

4.4 Evolve Or Die
So, the Espheni have tried all sorts of ways to get control of the earth. They did their doomsday bombing runs that destroyed major cities, they've sent skittering monsters after humans, they've sent giant mechanical robots after them, they've stuck fashionable spinewear onto the kids, they've sent roving air ships after them, they've tried to brainwash them, and they've rounded them up into concentration camps. Every weapon, every method, every technique to win or rip out hearts and minds just hasn't worked out, unlike with the Volm and all the other races the Espheni have captured or turned into skitters.
This week, they seem to be turning to a new experimental weapon. Not the space shields and atmosphere burning thing from last season, but something... make »

Noah Wyle, who has a thing for keepsakes from set, chatted with People this week about "one last thing" ...Last thing I lostSeven days ago in New York City I lost my driver's license on the street. Somebody found it, went on the Internet and tracked down my management company. In four hours I had it. How crazy is that? I sent the woman flowers and a thank-you note. Last moment of blissMy daughter [Auden, 8] is doing a performing-arts summer camp, and last night I ran lines with her and I've never done that before. It was like the greatest thing; I just couldn't believe it. »
Comic-Con continues to find new ways to spread out from the San Diego Convention Center.
Having already flowed into the lawn outside and into area hotels, the airport is the next takeover target for Hollywood’s TV networks and studios turning to the fanfest each year to promote their newest projects.
TNT will plaster the San Diego Intl Airport’s baggage claim carousels, escalators and skyway bridges with images and other messaging for its upcoming series “Legends,” starring Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino (see below). Show premieres Aug. 13.
From there, the marketing campaign will also appear around the city’s Gaslamp Quarter, including a giant billboard covering the side of the Marriott Hotel, next to the convention center.
Naturally, there’s also a social media component. The network is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. »

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.
Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs. I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »
