Morris Chestnut Coming To ABC Sitcom

Morris Chestnut will have a lead role in the pilot for ABC's drama "V," according to the Hollywood Reporter. The Warner Bros. Television project is a re-imagining of the original 1980s miniseries about an invasion of aliens known as Visitors and the resistance against them. It will center on a female Homeland Security agent.

Chestnut will play the woman's boyfriend, who has a dark secret -- he is a Visitor.

The actor's breakout role came as Ricky in John Singleton's 1991 film "Boyz N the Hood." He recently starred in and executive produced Sony Screen Gems' "Not Easily Broken" opposite Taraji P. Henson.
