Is the Hamptons most intriguing triangle on Revenge about to go bust?  Time will tell with the news today via TV Line that Barry Sloane (Aiden) has officially joined the cast of the Steven Spielberg produced alien-themed pilot for ABC entitled The Visitors! 

According to TV Line:  “Sloane will play the role of Wes, a former FBI agent now with the Special Projects Division of the Defense department who investigates military threats that are better off solved outside the public’s knowledge. Married to Lena, and the father of 9 year old Minx, he’s unfortunately become a career man first, and a family man second. Assigned to investigate a shocking discovery in the Algerian desert, Wes will find himself embroiled in history’s most explosive event – the realization that we are in fact not alone in this world.”

So what does this all mean for Sloane’s future on Revenge if the show should get picked-up for a fifth season? An insider for the primetime soap related that his status  “is still being determined.”  Does this mean Emily (Emily VanCamp) would ultimately then end up with Jack (Nick Wechsler)?

So we ask you, would you like to see Barry continue to be able to be  apart of Revenge as Aiden, or be written off the show completely? And, what do you think of his new role in The Visitors?  Comment below!

    And! with Barry Sloane !!
    I am in.. can’t wait– I’m an alien lover ..


  2. Phil says:

    First of all, I want to watch this new show…Second of all this news makes me happy for Revenge as well. Emily belongs with Jack in the end! I have been saying this from the very beginning. I feel that the Aiden character has run its course!


  3. Rob says:

    Id watch him read the phone book.

  4. Lyn says:

    I love Barry and can’t wait to see him on Visitors! But I don’t want him to leave Revenge. Aiden is my favorite character. Hopefully he will be able to do both.


  5. rebecca1 says:

    I’d look forward to seeing him in the new show. Quite impressive that he won a role in a Spielberg production. But…it would take away something for me on REVENGE. Love him in that as well.


  6. Nk3play2 says:

    PLEASE…. For the love of Revenge, tell me this means he’s leaving the show permanently.


  7. Micheli says:

    Sad news… I’m rooting for it to act in two series and finish the Revenge with Emily Thorne ..!


  8. Shay says:

    Matters none to me, since I cannot stand Emily or any of her so-called love interests…for me the show revolves around Victoria, Nolan and Patrick. However, for those Aidan fans, check your PBS listings for Episode One of the “Father Brown Mysteries”….Barry Sloane is featured in it. I did a doubletake when I initially saw him, but it was definitely him.


  9. Cami says:

    I really hope this show doesn’t veer off into a ditch and be ditched. I look forward to each new episode. Emily and Aidan need each other. I’d like to see more of them and less of Conrad and Victoria. More story lines with characters Emily ruins. Jack needs to reflect on his childhood with Emily more and forgive. It would be awesome to see him be a bad ass at something. Not crazy about his love interest unless of course she decides it’s time to get a bit of revenge on Conrad. Perhaps become Emily’s confidant and loyal friend. Bye bye Nolan!

    I want him to remain with “Revenge”. He is an integral part, besides being soooo handsome. But I would also like to see him in his new show.


  11. Denise says:

    Barry Sloane is gorgeous. I would watch him in anything.watching the Father Brown episode next.

    However , Emily and Jack need to be together and have. Beautiful babies !
