SYFY CASTS CHRISTOPHER EGAN, TOM WISDOM AND ALAN DALE FOR "DOMINION"

EGAN TO PLAY "ALEX LANNEN," WISDOM IS "MICHAEL" AND DALE IS "GENERAL RYSEN" IN SUPERNATURAL SERIES PILOT PRODUCED BY UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

NEW YORK - September 6, 2013 - Syfy announces the first casting for its upcoming supernatural drama pilot, Dominion, with the signings of Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom and Alan Dale. Produced by Universal Cable Productions, the pilot is set to begin shooting later this month in Cape Town, South Africa.

Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural action drama set 25 years after the events of the movie and picking up in the aftermath of a catastrophic war between an army of angels and mankind that has transformed the world. The series follows the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he's the unlikely savior of humanity, set against a backdrop of the ultimate celestial battle as it touches down on earth.

Scott Stewart, who co-wrote and directed Legion, is back to direct the pilot, and is one of the project's Executive Producers. Michel Litvak and David Lancaster of Bold Films, who produced the film Legion, are also Executive Producers. Vaun Wilmott wrote the pilot and is Co-Executive Producer.

Christopher Egan plays "Alex Lannen," an orphan with both a rebellious and protective streak. Handsome, heroic and fearless, Alex is classified as a "grunt" soldier in Michael's Archangel Corp but he is destined for more than his lowly classification in Vega's post-Extermination War society might indicate.

Among his long list of film and television credits in the US and Australia, Christopher Egan was the lead in Ryan Murphy's pilot Pretty Handsome for HBO, and went on to star in the NBC series, Kings. He played the lead opposite Amanda Seyfried in Gary Winnick's Letters to Juliet for Summit. Most recently, he starred in ABC pilots Poe, Beauty and the Beast, and Gothica. Christopher is represented by WME, Anonymous Content, and lawyer Karl Austen.

Tom Wisdom plays "Michael," the greatest of the warrior archangels. Scarred by millennia of battle, Michael is stoic, inscrutable and haunted. Instrumental in helping humanity defeat the angels during the Extermination War, Michael is now entrenched in Vega, using his superior supernatural abilities to defend the city's inhabitants from enemy attacks.

Tom Wisdom is a British theater, film and television actor. His feature film credits include 300, Pirate Radio, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2 and The Lightkeepers co-starring Richard Dreyfuss. This fall he co-stars as Count Paris in Romeo and Juliet with Hailee Steinfeld, Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis. Wisdom also starred in the U.K. television movie Sword of Honour and played a recurring role on the series, Above Suspicion. He is represented by UTA, Emptage Hallett, and Affirmative Entertainment.

Alan Dale plays "Rysen," the general who led the humans to victory against the angels during the "Extermination War." Responsibilities weigh heavily upon him as ruler of Vega (once known as Las Vegas), one of four cities left standing after the war. He now finds himself negotiating politics in the heavily militarized city, maintaining calm over its stratified society and keeping a watchful eye on his daughter, Claire.

Born and raised in New Zealand, Alan Dale began his acting career in Australia. On American television he has played regular roles on The OC and Ugly Betty, as well as recurring and guest starring roles on Lost, 24, NCIS, Entourage, The Killing, Hot in Cleveland and Once Upon a Time. On the big screen he has appeared in the feature films Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Star Trek Nemesis. He can also be seen in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the independent film, Grace. Dale was also onstage in London's West End production of Spamalot. Dale is represented by APA and Management 360.
