Original 'Roswell' Star Jason Behr Joins 'Roswell, New Mexico' Cast for Season 2!

Exciting news for Roswell fans – Jason Behr, who played Max Evans on the 1999 series Roswell, has joined the cast of the reboot series Roswell, New Mexico!

The casting news was announced during the show’s New York Comic Con panel on Sunday (October 6) at the Javits Center in New York City.

Cast members Jeanine Mason, Nathan Parsons, Tyler Blackburn, Michael Vlamis, and Lily Cowles, and executive producers Julie Plec, Carina Adly MacKenzie, and Chris Hollier were all in attendance at the event. See photos in the gallery!

“We’re very excited that Jason will be joining us for a multi-episode arc. It’s only fitting that he’s playing a (currently top secret) character with deep ties to Roswell, New Mexico’s history. Working with him has already been such a special experience for all of us –– particularly when [Roswell co-star] Shiri Appleby was on set to direct him. I was such a huge fan of Roswell as a kid, so having their stamp of approval –– not to mention their expertise and advice –– has really meant the world to me, the cast and the crew,” Carina said in a statement.

It was also announced that Friday Night LightsGaius Charles will play Bronson, a local farmer with a strong moral compass that leads him to see the good in people –– and aliens –– in a time of great prejudice. Ultimately, his quest to protect those he loves pits him against forces far more powerful than he is.
