The View: Noah Wyle Took Part On Falling Skies Because Of His Son
Falling Skies is now the number one show on basic cable, and Noah Wyle couldn’t be happier. His role on the show wasn’t a choice he made on his own, though.

Sherri wonders sometime whether or not his son roots for the aliens sometimes, which Noah Joked depends on whether or not he let his son play his Xbox.
The View: Falling Skies Season 3 Preview
Falling Skies picks up six months into an alien invasion, and Noah Wyle’s character, Tom Mason, a former history professor at Boston University, is the leader of a resistance group fighting back against the aliens. At the end of season 2, Tom Mason and his militia were getting ready to head out of Charleston, when alien landing pods crashed down from the sky. A new breed of alien stepped out, and that’s where it ended.
Season 3 of Falling Skies picks up seven months after that. As it turns out, they are working along with this new race of aliens, and have received new technology from them that is slowly turning the tides of the war. The question is, however, is the enemy of my enemy my friend, or just another enemy waiting to cut my throat? Season 3 will explore, and hopefully answer, this question.
