Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) to Guest-Star on TNT's "Falling Skies"
Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) is set for a multiple-episode guest-starring arc in the fourth season of TNT's epic drama Falling Skies. Sorvino, whose credits include the hit comedy Romy and Michele's High School Reunion and Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi thriller Mimic, will play Sara, a woman far removed from her former life as a graphic designer. She is now dogged by death at every turn, yet she has never felt more alive, free or fearless. A chance encounter with guerrilla fighter John Pope (Colin Cunningham) leads her to join the resistance and develop a strong personal bond with the outlaw-turned-warrior.
