Matt Lanter Lands Lead Role in CW’s “Oxygen”


mattlanter-oxygen-030713While we’re going to miss seeing Matt Lanter as Liam on “90210,” we are very excited about his next gig!

Matt has landed the male lead role in the CW’s new pilot “Oxygen” where he will play Roman, a member of the Orion 9 integrated into a suburban high school who falls in love with Emery after he befriends her while escaping authorities 10 years prior.

Aimee Teegarden will play Emery in the show which revolves around the romance that ignites between Emery, a human girl (Teegarden) and Roman, an alien boy, when he and eight others of his kind (The Orion 9) are integrated into a suburban high school 10 years after they and hundreds of others landed on Earth and were immediately consigned to an internment camp where they’ve been imprisoned ever since.

Titus Makin Jr., Malese Jow and Grey Damon will also star. This definitely sounds like an interesting show. Fingers crossed it gets picked up!
