Friday Night Lights alum Gaius Charles and Jason Behr, one of the stars of the original Roswell series, will play recurring roles in Season 2 of The CW alien drama, Roswell, New Mexico.

The news was announced Sunday at New York Comic Con.

"When we were looking at a way to instantly have our audience be invested in a 1947 story-line, we couldn't think of a better actor than Gaius Charles to create a character to hook into.

"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.
