BSG's James Callis joining cast of Eureka

From SyFy's official announcement

The dramedy's new season welcomes an all-new regular cast member, James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as "Dr. Grant."
http://scifiwire.com/2010/03/james-c...ins-the-sy.php

I really like Callis on BSG (he played Gaius Baltar, for those who don't recognize the name). So I'm cautiously optomistic about this.

Callis will also have a recurring role on FlashForward later this season. http://tv.ign.com/articles/107/1072608p1.html

Great news. James Callis is awesome. He was probably my favorite actor on BSG, or at least one of the favorites. It's great to see him again. Flashforward and Eureka have just become more interesting.

I really like Callis, but have no interest in Eureka. It's just too light for my tastes.

Yeah, that's my feelings too.


(I wish he could have joined a *better* series...lol. Hell, "V" even, would be cool...)

Good stuff. Now they just need to bring Jamie Ray Newman back... which could work considering Eastwick was cancelled.

My husband makes me watch this show, which I really don't care for at all. Still, now there will be some diversion since I really like JC.

Damn.

I was hoping he'd have big things in his future.

I like Eureka, but Callis is much too good for it.

Re: BSG's James Callis joining cast of Eureka

I wonder if he's the man responsible for the blackouts in FF? That would be cool.

Mine too, but I'll check the show out when he comes on.

I thought he'd be onto something bigger than Eureka as well.

I like Callis, I adore Eureka, but I just don't see it being a good fit. I don't think he's the right type of actor.

Why not? Eureka has a lot of light humor in it, and Callis is as great in comedy as in drama.

Eureka is one of the few shows my wife will watch with me. Looking forward to seeing Callis on it!

Callis going to something like Eureka may be a step to better things. Dr. Gaius Baltar was ridiculous and playing a real character might earn him some credit for acting skills. Sort of like Morena Baccarin covering up the silly space ho by segueing into Adria on SG1. Now she's Anna.
