Adama will be played by some old guy, but the rest of the cast is going to need to skew hot & young. Lance Reddick is no box office draw.


I can actually see that being the real level of consideration.

"Look, I don't care. Just bring me some old guy who looks prestigious, like Lorne Green, only not dead. Now let's get some uber hotties in this thing!"
Pretty much, except nobody will know who Lorne Green is (that's the guy who produces Saturday Night Live, right?) The "one ugly old dude" will be Tommy Lee Jones as Adama, and everyone else will be imported from the Twilight movies and Friday Night Lights.
Even TOS Tighe had some obvious aging, and I want to think he (at least the actor when not died) had some grey in his hair? Col Tighe, can't be under Mid 40s. Sure, if you want to, you can make him hot, but, he can't be a youngster (He's a Colonel for Frak's Sake), and he's gotta be demanding.
