Eric Stoltz and Frances Fisher join the SciFi team

Eric Stoltz - CapricaThe wheels keep on turning for the Battlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica. Eric Stoltz is the latest addition to the cast. He'll be playing Daniel Graystone, wealthy computer engineer. Details are few and far between, of course, but so far we know that after a family tragedy he will use his knowledge of technology to forever change the future of Caprica. He's joined by Alessandra Toressani, who will play his daughter, Zoe. And if your mind just flashed to Stoltz in Killing Zoe, we're on the same page.

That news is given a bit more of a boost if you recall that Paula Malcomson has already been cast as Amanda Graystone, a surgeon described as "something of a double agent." Now, add that to the previously revealed bits that tell us the story takes place 50 years before Galactica and focuses on the creation of the Cylons. A picture starts to emerge.

In other SciFi casting news, Frances Fisher has signed on for an eight episode run on the new season of Eureka, which begins July 29th. According to the blurb over on SciFi Wire, she'll play Samantha Thorne, aka "the fixer." Thorne is being brought in to clean up Global Dynamics. Given the way season two played out, it's not a big stretch to get to that idea. For my TV watching dollar, both Fisher and Stoltz are great additions to the SciFi lineup.

What if, and this is just a "what if"... What if Michael J. Fox plays Daniel Graystone?

Think about it... Yeah, yeah... Are you getting it? Mmm-hmm.

Awesome. I've loved Eric Stoltz ever since his tour de force performance in The Fly 2. Seriously though, he's a great actor. As a fan of BSG, Caprica is definitely on my dradis.

I'm stil on the fence about Caprica, but with each cast annoucement I get more interested. If nothing else, they are assembling one hell of a strong cast.

That might be enough for me to take a peek at it.
