Heroes gets its very own Cylon

rick worthy battlestar heroes cylonYou know what? I'm down with all the cast, er, cross-pollination that's going on in sci-fi TV these days. Especially if it means good actors can keep working after their previous shows were given the axe. Earlier today, we reported that Brian Austin Green, formerly of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is joining Smallville for a two-episode arc. Now it looks like Battlestar Galactica's Rick Worthy is in talks to join NBC's Heroes.

On BSG, Worthy played Simon, the Cylon famous for conducting icky experiments on Kara Thrace. He'll play telepath Matt Parkman's new partner, an experienced L.A. cop, on Heroes when the show returns this fall. It's still unclear if Worthy's character will develop superpowers on the show, but something tells me he'll be more than just a normal cop before long. This is Heroes were talking about, the show where everyone gets superpowers.

Worthy is a sci-fi vet. He's appeared in everything from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine to Dark Angel and Stargate: SG-1. He'll be joining new Heroes season four recruits Robert Knepper and Madelina Zima.

I wonder if they will introduce him, give him an interesting back story and never hear from him again like they did on BSG?

I do notice that a lot of actors seem to make the rounds of all the sci-fi and fantasy shows.

There also seems to be a whole troop of actors that appear on everything filmed in Vancouver.

I am totally excited. I love this actor, who's worthy of his name, and think he's awesome. In BSG he totally scared the crap out of me and, then, the pants off of me. I miss the days when Parkman experienced cop-hazing so I hope Worthy brings that back.
