New York, NY - June 4, 2013 - Brian J. Smith guest stars in an all-new episode of Syfy's hit series, Defiance, Monday, June 10 at 9PM ET/PT. Smith portrays Gordon McClintock, a NASA hero from the pre-Arkfall days who was presumed dead following a space station catastrophe in 2013. The astronaut is discovered to still be alive when he is revived from an induced sleep, and is overcome with shock and disbelief at the dangerous new world of Defiance.

Smith starred in the Syfy original series Stargate Universe and the Syfy original movie Red Faction. Originally from Dallas, Texas, Smith is a graduate of the four-year acting program at The Julliard School in New York City. He also starred in the 2009 feature film The War Boys, written by award-winning playwright Naomi Wallace and Bruce McLeod, and appeared in the 2009 thriller Redhook. His additional television credits include Poirot : Murder on the Orient Express and a guest star role on NBC's Law and Order. Smith appeared on Broadway in The Columnist opposite John Lithgow, Come Back, Little Sheba opposite S. Epatha Merkerson, and, off-Broadway, in Good Boys and True, and Three Changes, opposite Dylan McDermott and Maura Tierney. This fall Smith will return to Broadway, reprising his role as Jim in the American Repertory Theater's acclaimed production of The Glass Menagerie (opposite cast mates Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto).

About Defiance

At its core, Defiance is a story about survival under extreme circumstances and the will to fight for what matters. Set in the near future, the planet Earth has been exotically transformed and its landscape permanently altered following the sudden - and tumultuous - arrival of seven unique alien races. Their arrival sparks 30 years of war, at the end of which the story of Defiance begins as groups of humans and aliens attempt to lay down their arms, build new civilizations and co-exist peacefully. Viewers follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players experience the frontier of the San Francisco Bay area.

The series' cast is led by Grant Bowler, portraying Nolan, a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and became a wanderer in the new world. Julie Benz portrays Amanda Rosewater, the idealistic mayor of the bustling mining boomtown of Defiance. Stephanie Leonidas plays Irisa, a warrior who is part of an alien race called the Irathients, and Nolan's adopted daughter. Tony Curran and Jaime Murray portray Datak and Stahma Tarr, scheming and opportunistic members of an elite alien race known as the Castithans. Graham Greene is Rafe McCawley, owner of the largest mine in the territory. Mia Kirshner plays Kenya, the dauntless town madam, who displays an unwavering devotion to the town of Defiance.
