Grant Bowler Cast As Lead In Syfy's DEFIANCE

It's been a while since the upcoming Syfy series DEFIANCE has been mentioned but today Deadline has reported that the upcoming series has cast its lead.   Ugly Betty and True Blood alum Grant Bowler has been cast in the lead role of the upcoming live-action drama written and executive produced by Farscape creator Rockne S. O’Bannon, which was developed concurrently with an online video game by Trion. 

Defiance Synopsis:
Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravished by decades of war and transformed by alien terra-forming machines. It centers on Jeb Nolan (Bowler), the law keeper in a bustling frontier boomtown that is one of the new world’s few oasis of civility and inclusion. Nolan is a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and suffered the loss of his wife and child in the war. The trauma transformed him into a lone wanderer in the wilds of this new and dangerous world. 

Sounds like Cowboys and Aliens made for TV doesn't it.
