Syfy has announced that it has begun casting for the television show that will tie in (and vice versa!) with the Trion Worlds' MMO, Defiance. According to Deadline.com, the first cast member to be announced is Grant Bowler. Bowler may be remembered as a cast member in both Ugly Betty and True Blood.
