Looper star Pierce Gagnon has been cast as Halle Berry's son in CBS' new summer series Extant, the network announced Tuesday.
From Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, the futuristic thriller follows a female astronaut (Berry) who tries to reconnect with her husband and son (Gagnon) when she returns after a year-long solo mission in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history.
