ABC Announces First Star for Its V Remake

The recently announced greenlit remake of the 1980s classic miniseries V now has its first officially attached star. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news yesterday that Scott Wolf of Party of Five fame--last seen on ABC's ill-fated The Nine--will play the role of a TV newscaster who turns Baltar and becomes the Visitors' propaganda tool.

The new version of V is planned as an ongoing series, and is expected to follow a somewhat different narrative from the original. Meaning, don't expect any of the characters you knew from before. I'm thinking this thing is going to be heavily BSG-influenced.

I wanted to thank all the contributors and readers who helped make the first-ever Cyber Horror Awards a success. If you head over to the awards page, you'll be able to read some gracious words from some of the winners, including Saw V director David Hackl, who won Best Production Design for Repo! The Genetic Opera. Here's hoping that the CHAs will become even bigger and better in the coming years!

I have both hoped for and dreaded this day. But, if they take their cues from BSG, they could knock it out of the park.

You mean Scott Wolf

Thanks! Good catch, kiddo ;-)

Hmm, interesting. I remember being both scared and intrigued by V as a kid. Anything is better than the crappy teen shows that are all over the air right now. Unless they somehow manage to combine the two and destroy my fragile psyche.

But who's the star? Surely you didn't mean Scott Wolf.

Ha.
