The actor has been cast as the male lead on Oxygen, a pilot based around nine aliens who have been stuck in an internment camp for a decade, only to be freed and integrated into a suburban high school on the premiere.

Lanter will portray Roman, the alien love interest of Aimee Teegarden's human character.

Oxygen will also star Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries) and Grey Damon (Friday Night Lights) and appears to be a strong contender for a spot on the 2013-2014 schedule.
