TWILIGHT’s Billy Burke Lands Lead Role in J.J. Abrams’ REVOLUTION Pilot at NBC

     March 26, 2012


Last month the developing NBC pilot Revolution from J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production banner landed one lead actor in the form of Breaking Bad villain Giancarlo Esposito, and now another actor has entered the mix as well. Deadline reports The Twilight Saga star Billy Burke has landed another lead role in the potential series as Miles, an amazingly resourceful man with dark and dangerous side. The pilot has already been in production and had even cast Burke in the supporting role of a charismatic Marine, but then producers decided they wanted Burke in a much more integral role with his former part currently being recast. For those just joining us, the series follows a group of people struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.
