True Blood rogue playing futuristic hero in Defiance

Movie News

Kiwi actor Grant Bowler (“True Blood”, “The Mole”, “The Killer Elite”) has snagged the lead role in SyFy series “Defiance”, reports Deadline.

It’s been a big couple of years for Bowler, who got his big break on TV’s “Blue Heelers”, before claiming fame in stateside series like “Lost” and “Ugly Betty”.

Here’s the low-down on the show :

Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged 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. Defiance seems to be blending Western and alien themes, something that last year’s feature Cowboys & Aliens attempted to do, but the series is set in the future.

“Grant’s charismatic charm and his depth as an actor make him the perfect anchor as we build the ensemble for this sweeping adventure series,” said Syfy’s president of original content Mark Stern.
