Falling Skies has returned for its third season, as the epic battle between humans and aliens continues. Seven months have passed since viewers last saw the survivors of the 2nd Mass, led by Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), and now that they’ve teamed up with Volm and a band of rebel Skitters, the human race looks like it just might have some hope. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the show also stars Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Sarah Carter, Colin Cunningham and Seychelle Gabriel, along with Doug Jones, Gloria Reuben and Robert Sean Leonard.
While at the show’s press day, actor Doug Jones spoke to Collider at both a roundtable and a 1-on-1 interview about how he came to be playing Volm leader Cochise, his desire to make every otherworldly creature he portrays different from the last, the two-hour make-up process, the most surprising thing about bringing Cochise to life, and whether the humans should be suspicious of the Volm’s motives. He also talked about how he started out as a mime, that he originally thought he would be a sitcom star, the 27 commercials he did as the crescent moon-headed Mac Tonight character for McDonald’s, the creature he’s most proud of, and his hope that there will be a Hellboy 3. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
