Barry Sloane’s status on the hit drama “Revenge” will probably be changing soon. Sloane has been cast for a part on the new ABC drama “The Visitors.” The Hollywood Reporter reported on Feb. 20 about the star’s new role. It is still unclear about Sloane’s future on “Revenge” as Aiden Mathis.

Sloane has been cast as Wes Lawrence on the new show. He is a former FBI agent who is now part of special division who investigates possible military threats. He is assigned to investigate an incident in the Algerian desert where he will make startling discoveries.

“The Visitors” is said to be an alien drama in which the world is trying to be saved from destruction. Steven Spielberg is the executive producer of “The Visitors.”

The news of Sloane being cast in this role has “Revenge” fans worried this is probably the end of Aiden Mathis. Don’t get too worried just yet though, it is being said that Sloane has the possibility of returning as guest star on “Revenge” if the show is renewed for season 4.

An exact date when “The Visitors” will premiere is not yet known. New episodes of “Revenge” will begin March 9 on ABC.
