'Star-Crossed' premiere sneak peek: Matt Lanter saves the day

star-crossed-premiere-fight-matt-lanter-brina-palencia-cw.jpg Matt Lanter, will you be our valentine? Your crush on the "Star-Crossed" heartthrob will be that much stronger when you watch this exclusive sneak peek at the CW drama's series premiere.

In Zap2it's first look at a pivotal scene from the episode, we meet Roman (Lanter) as we will see him frequently throughout the series: saving the day. It's the first day of school for Roman, his sister, Sophia ( Brina Palencia), and the five other alien teenagers integrating into the local Louisiana high school in the year 2024.

But not everyone is happy for the Atrians' arrival -- Eric ( Jesse Luken) is particularly unhappy about all the progress being made and picks Sophia to harass in the hallway. Don't worry, Roman comes to her rescue -- right before Eric sucker-punches him in the face.

It's the "Star-Crossed" equivalent of "Welcome to the O.C., b***," but with much higher stakes. Check out the clip below, then tune in to the "Star-Crossed" premiere on Monday (Feb. 17) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
