Scott Wolf, Julie Bowen Scott Wolf, Julie Bowen

From Party of Five to party of V... ? Scott Wolf has been cast on ABC's reboot of the aliens-among-us V, playing an ambitious TV newscaster who becomes a mouthpiece for the visiting ETs' agenda.

In other ABC pilot castings, Julie Bowen (you say Boston Legal or Ed, I say Lost) has landed a lead role in the comedy My American Family, playing wife to Ty Burrell (Back to You).

Also, Jonathan Silverman (In Case of Emergency Weekend at Bernie's) is the first to be cast in an as-yet-untitled comedy from Jeff Strauss (Reba) and revolving around three couples, while Heroes alum Dania Ramirez will play a homicide detective on a cop drama from Daniel Cerone.
