ROSWELL Reboot Adds Tyler Blackburn & Nathan Parsons


Roswell are upping their hot guy quota with the casting of Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars) and Nathan Parsons (The Originals)

The potential series — penned by Originals writer Carina Adly MacKenzie — centers on Liz Ortecho (Grey’s Anatomy up-and-comer Jeanine Mason), a jaded biomedical researcher and the daughter of undocumented immigrants who is haunted by a tragic incident. She discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush (played by Parsons): He’s an alien.

Blackburn, meanwhile, will portray Sgt. Alex Manes, who, after returning home from the Middle East aims to adhere to his father’s expectations, abandoning his dreams and the possibility of a future with the man he loves.

Blackburn is best known for his portrayal of Caleb in Pretty Little Liars and the unsuccessful spinoff Ravenswood. Parsons is known for appearing in CW’s The Originals and HBO’s True Blood
