The View: June 5 2013
Recapo Update: Here are the segments from today’s show:
On The View June 5 2013, Noah Wyle of Falling Skies and Lieutenant Colonel Mark Weber, author of Tell My Sons, will be serving up some interviews, while the cast of Broadway’s Kinky Boots will be putting on a performance.
The View: Noah Wyle
Though he is currently best known for his role as Tom Mason in TNT’s Falling Skies, he has done quite a bit of other work in both film and television, as well. He played Dr. John Carter in ER, Steve Jobs in the docudrama Pirates Of Silicon Valley, a doctor in Donnie Darko, and Flynn Carsen in TNT’s The Librarian, a made-for-TV series of movies. The man has clearly stayed quite busy with his acting career.
Falling Skies, the thing he is most likely to discuss on the June 5 show, is a science fiction series created for TNT by Robert Rodat and produced by Steven Spielberg. Taking place six months into an alien invasion that has wiped out 90 percent of the human population, Tom Mason, a former Boston University history professor, has become the second in command in a militia that is trying to both escape Boston and strike back against the invading enemy force. There appears to be a subplot that has Tom searching for his son, which I’m assuming injects a little drama and heart into the show. Sounds interesting!
The View: Tell My Sons Review
U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Mark Weber was a few months into an important new assignment in Afghanistan’s Parliament when he was diagnosed with cancer he would not survive. So they could remember him, Mark wrote letters back to his sons to impart any advice he could on them to show them that their father was still there for them. Tell My Sons is made up of those letters. This will no doubt be an emotional interview. Make sure to tune in!
