A group of aliens are sent to Earth, disguised as a human family, to experience and report life on the third planet from the sun
John Lithgow played Dr Dick Solomon
Solomon is the High Commander of a highly trained alien unit, sent to Earth by their leader, The Big Giant Head.Dick works at Pendelton State University as a professor of physics. Dick often uses his class, oddly enough the same throughout all six seasons, to gain a better understanding of humanity by assigning arbitrary essays on which their grade depends. He is now going to be seen in The Lives of Saints which is under production.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt played Harry Solomon
Next on the roster was the crew’s crack intelligence officer Tommy Solomon who, even though he’d assumed the form of Dick’s adolescent son, was actually the oldest and smartest member of the team and never wasted an opportunity to imperiously remind his colleagues of that fact. Joseph Gordon Levitt will be seen playing Robert Todd in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, and John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises.
Kristen Johnston played Sally Solomon
Dick’s second in command, was Lt. Sally Solomon, a tough-as-nails military commando who was none too thrilled at being forced to assume female form (and an embarrassingly young and beautiful female at that). Kirsten Johnston was last seen as Holly Franklin in the television series The Exes.
French Stewart played Tommy Solomon
Bringing up the rear in every sense was dimwitted, impulsive Harry Solomon who’d come along for the ride to earth “because they had an extra seat.” The team’s mission was to last only a few weeks, but the human emotions that came with their new human bodies holds them back. He will soon be seen in the stage production of Stoneface: The rise and fall and rise of Buster Keaton.
