NEW YORK, April 23 (UPI) -- Bruce Boxleitner has signed on to star in the U.S. television movie "51," Syfy announced Friday.

The former "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" and "Babylon 5" actor will play a military hero nearing retirement in the upcoming Syfy Saturday Original Movie, which is scheduled to premiere on the cable network in 2011.

"A co-production with After Dark Films, '51,' co-starring John Shea, chronicles what happens after political pressure from the American public forces the Air Force to allow a few well-known reporters limited access to the most secretive base on the planet: Area 51, the rumored repository of captured alien technology and extra-terrestrial beings," Syfy said in a news release.

"When one of the base's hidden 'long-term visitors' exploits this unprecedented visit as a chance to liberate himself and his fellow alien captives, Area 51 turns from a secure military installation to a horrifying destination of terror."
