Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x17: "Someone to Watch Over Me"

Brad and I were very concerned about getting an actor who could actually play the piano and work with you on the set. Nankin suddenly had an idea: “Why don’t we have Bear audition for the part?” Brad and I thought we had nothing to lose and you were game for it so we brought you in.

I thought you did a great job for a non-actor. But we realized we needed a professional actor who could deliver all of the emotional nuances and levels to the character and hold his own on screen with Katee Sackhoff. No small challenge. Then I became very uptight. Oh man, we have to tell Bear we aren’t going to cast him and he learned all those lines and came in to audition, which can be a mortifying experience – what have we in our collective madness done?
