Some Caprica and Warehouse 13 casting news

Paula MalcomsonEarly last month I posted a casting call sheet for the upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel show, Caprica. In that list was a call for Amanda Graystone, a "surgeon with a volatile streak to her" who is "something of a double agent." Well, you can scratch that one off the list of openings, as Paula Malcomson (Trixie of Deadwood and Jerri of John From Cincinnati) has been cast in the role.

My interest in Caprica hinges on how Battlestar Galactica concludes; will I really want to know more about how it all began? I could see them putting us in a place that has us craving for more, though it's likely Caprica is meant to stand on its own and without having to follow too many rules set by the BSG events. Hopefully I'm wrong.

In other news, Eddie McClintock (Crumbs) and Joanne Kelly (Vanished) are headed to the new dramedy for Sci Fi titled Warehouse 13. Jace Alexander, who directed the pilot for Burn Notice, is set to direct this series. And that can't be such a bad thing, as I consider Burn Notice one of my top five favorite currently active shows. Also, as we mentioned before, one of its writers is Buffy's Jane Espenson.

*Possible Spoiler*
According to what I have read, Joseph Adama (or Adams) loses his wife and daughter in the bombing too.
Poor 9 year old Bill Adama loses his mom and sister.

Of course, these things I read could change.

Side note for BSG possible *Spoiler* - EJO said that what they have filmed in explanation of Starbuck's return has not been "uplifting" - sounds very Count Iblis to me...

possible spoilers:

1st human based cylon = zoe graystone.
2nd is most probably ben stark?

ben was the head of an illegal monotheistic cult, and he suicide bombed himself and girlfriend zoe, but apparantly uploaded an avatar of himself and zoe which was used to create the first human-based cylon by zoe's mom/dad.

and somewhere in the mix is joseph adama, not sure how he fits into all this.

so it seems that the final cylon from BSG is probably zoe, if not ben and a slight possibility of joseph adama or even zac adama, seing how joseph would have access to creating cylons?

also the cylon god concept probably came from ben stark and/or zoe who did believe in it too. since they were the first cylons, this notion of monotheism was embedded into the cylon conciousness.

how baltar can be physically manipulated by his head-six, and how she is connected to the cylon god is anyones guess, unless ofcourse the cylon god is REAL and not just speculation, which i doubt the show will confirm. it has never drawn religious lines.

Yes! If anyone can play volatile it's Malcomson. I am looking forward to Caprica even more now.
