A couple cast members for the Battlestar Galactica prequel have been announced. It seems Luke Pasqualino will play young William Adama. Here’s the description of Adama.
Pasqualino will star as the young, talented fighter pilot William Adama, a recent Academy graduate who finds himself assigned to the newest Battlestar in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 45 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.
To be honest, I have no idea who Luke Paqualino or Ben Cotton are. I’ve not seen anything they’ve been in and I’m really surprised that Adama is going to be so young in the series.
I was a huge fan of Battlestar but couldn’t get into Caprica. Hopefully this new prequel will capture some of the magic that the original had.
