SyFy's New Battlestar Galactica Prequel Searches for Lead Roles

SyFy's new Battlestar Galactica prequel pilot, Blood & Chrome, has begun casting its three lead characters — roles that shed light on what this new show is about. The series is set in the tenth year of the first Cylon war and centers around hotshot rookie pilot William Adama (played by Edward James Olmos in the 2004-09 series) as he is assigned to Galactica, the Colonial fleet's newest battlestar.

Adama will be in his early-to-mid 20s, and is described as Tom Cruise's character in Top Gun — a cocky and fearless jock. His experience as a fighter pilot thus far has been limited to simulations, but he can't wait to duke it out with the Cylons. His over-enthusiasm and risky maneuvers cause him to butt heads with the more experienced and cynical Electronic Countermeasures Officer, Coker Fasjovik.
