Interview with Noah Wyle from Falling Skies

I recently got the chance to speak with one of my favorite actors ever, Noah Wyle, about his new show, Falling Skies. Falling Skies takes place six months after aliens have invaded Earth and killed most of the population. Noah’s character fights back, along with his family and a small group of other survivors.

Noah played one of my favorite characters of all time, Dr. John Carter, on ER. He also played the lead on TNT’s TV movie series, The Librarian, which my whole family loves. Check out the great questions & answers Noah gave to me and other members of the press below!

On what made him want to do the show

Well it was a combination of things, really. It was, you know, the right script at the right time right when I was getting the itch to get back to work. It was a chance to work again with TNT who I’ve built up a really wonderful relationship over the last couple years doing these Librarian movies. It was a chance to work again for Mr. Spielberg, who was one of the Executive Producers on ER. So I knew that they would be wonderful collaborators. And the chance to work again for DreamWorks and Mr. Spielberg also was, sort of, a good hedge against that knowing that, certainly the spaceships and the aliens [Note from Jenny: Spielberg designed them himself, according to Noah] were going to look fantastic and that anytime Mr. Spielberg puts himself or involves himself in any capacity, the project only gets enriched by it.

And it was a new genre and totally different character. And it seemed like it presented a pretty good challenge. And I very much was looking forward to shooting 10 episodes a year instead of 22 or 24.

All you really ever have to go on is the quality of the pilot script and the creative elements involved. And Robert Rodat who – I don’t believe he actually has any other television experience but wrote Saving Private Ryan and The Patriot, I thought wrote a really beautiful script.

New Trailer for TNT’s Falling Skies

This looks absolutely INSANELY good. TNT has released a new trailer for the eagerly anticipated series Falling Skies, featuring new action-packed show footage and interviews with stars Noah Wyle (ER, The Librarian movies), Moon Bloodgood (Terminator: Salvation) and Drew Roy (Secretariat). The trailer gives an inside look at the series, which is set to launch with a two-hour premiere Sunday, June 19, at 9/8c, before moving into its regular timeslot of Sundays at 10/9c.

Falling Skies opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. The few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers engage in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery. Falling Skies is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.

It stars Wyle as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Bloodgood also stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the survivors. Will Patton (Armageddon, Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. And Roy plays Mason’s eldest son and fellow-fighter, Hal. The show comes to TNT from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
