Roswell alumn Shiri Appleby has been cast in the new CW pilot, Light Years, which follows a 16 year old girl looking for her biological parents. Appleby will play the mother who had a one night stand with a bar owner 16 years ago, resulting in the pregnancy.
WB alumn Kerr Smith from Dawson’s Creek is also on the show as Appleby’s radio co-host and boyfriend. This will be the first time Appleby will be playing a mother! No word yet on whether or not they’ll be visited by aliens.
