Mike Vogel is tapped to take over Jonah Lotan's lead role of a pilot called Dean on the 1960s-set series.
Mike Vogel comes aboard the plane on "Pan Am". The 32-year-old hunk, who landed a role of Jason "Hawk" Hawkins on Matt Reeves-directed sci-fi film "Cloverfield", has been cast to replace Jonah Lotan on the upcoming ABC drama series.
Vogel will now be seen in the male lead role of Dean, a captain on Pan Am's newest plane, the Majestic, who is living his boyhood dream of being a pilot. Lotan was reportedly cut off the show because of creative reasons.
"Pan Am", created by Jack Orman, follows some stewardesses and pilots for Pan Am Airlines living double lives as spies. Christina Ricci, Kelli Garner, Margot Robbie and Michael Mosley are also featured on this period drama which will premiere Sunday, September 25 at 10 P.M.
Mike Vogel has previously starred on such TV series as "Miami Medical" and "Grounded for Life". He recently appeared on "Blue Valentine" as Bobby Ontario and will next grace big screen through "The Help" and "What's Your Number?".
