After Falling Skies‘ thrilling two-hour season premiere last week, star Noah Wyle is the first to admit the show has a lot of balls in the air — the ascension to the presidency for Wyle’s character Tom, plus a baby on the way, the infection of his son Hal (Drew Roy), and a new alliance with seemingly friendly aliens… and that’s just the start. “We threw into play quite a few storylines right off the bat,” Wyle tells EW. “All this stuff is pretty big and meaty to have an audience wrap their head around in the first episode of the season. But it’s good. It’s a big ball of yarn, and we unravel it as the season goes on.”
With season 3 filmed, Wyle and costar Will Patton sat down to take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. Below, watch them talk about mean actors and memorabilia, then get the scoops on what’s in store for the 2nd Mass over the next few months.
