Weekly exposure on the popular series lead to starring roles in the "Ozploitation" thrillers "Storm Warning" (2008) and "Cactus" (2008), and brought Lyons to the United States to play the arrogant and superficial Dr. Simon Brenner on the final season of the long-running medical drama "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009).

He starred in the Australian TV movie, "A Model Daughter: The Killing of Caroline Byrne" (Network 10, 2009) before returning to Hollywood to play Julia Roberts' skinny-dipping, would-be beau Ian in "Eat Pray Love" (2010), as well as the title role on the short-lived superhero...

He headed home again to star in the thriller "Swerve" (2011) and the cricket comedy "Save Your Legs" (2012). In 2012, Lyons was cast as Marine-turned-militia leader Sebastian Monroe on the apocalyptic hit "Revolution" (NBC, 2012-14), executive-produced by J.J. Abrams. Between seasons, Lyons co-starred in Lasse Hallstrom's "Safe Haven" (2013), legal drama "The Trials of Cate McCall" (2013), and Robert Redford's docudrama "Truth" (2015). Following the end of "Revolution," Lyons starred in drama series "Game of Silence" (NBC 2016), based on a hit Turkish drama, "Suskunlar" (Show TV 2012).
