The pilot season casting train just keeps chugging along, with ABC adding cast members to two of its pilots. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Morris Chestnut has landed the lead role in V while Jennifer Finnigan has signed on for Inside the Box.
V, a remake of the 1984 mini-series, will center on a female Homeland Security agent dealing with an alien invasion, or "Visitors." Chestnut will play her boyfriend who hides a secret - he is a Visitor.
Inside the Box will be set at a Washington D.C. broadcast news bureau and Finnigan will portray the new White House press secretary, who also had a recent affair with the network's top anchor (Jason George).
No production schedule was revealed for either pilot.
