LOS ANGELES (AP) — Noah Wyle is confronting an alien invasion, the death of his wife and the potential annihilation of the human species in “Falling Skies.”
But he had to face a more personal issue in tackling the role of history professor Tom Mason in TNT’s sci-fi series, returned Sunday for season two: Wyle, 41, has become an elder statesman, relatively speaking.
“I’m Anthony Edwards,” said Wyle, referring to the “ER” co-star who’s got eight years on him and boasted more credits when they started on the medical drama in 1994. “I’m the guy who’s been around a little longer and has a little more set savvy.”
It’s a shift that came up faster than expected for Wyle, who looks younger than his years despite the beard he added for gravitas on “Falling Skies.”
“When I showed up on set and realized I was going to play a father to Drew Royce, who’s 26, my first instinct was, ‘You gotta be kidding me.’ Then I thought, ‘Why is nobody else having a problem with this?’”
With his own children just 9 and 6 years old, Wyle protests, “I’m a young dad.”
His TV expertise is much appreciated, said Remi Aubuchon, the show’s executive producer.
