'Eureka' Snags 'Battlestar Galactica' Veteran

james callis'Battlestar Galactica' fans can probably stop worrying about James Callis' career. The former Gaius Baltar won't be stuck in Z-grade TV movies forever. He recently scored a pivotal role in ABC's 'FlashForward' and, according to Syfy, Callis has officially joined the cast of 'Eureka'.

Callis will play Dr. Grant on the fourth season of the quirky sci-fi series. Grant is described as a former town resident who returns to (possibly) reignite an old romance with Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) that turns life in Eureka upside down. (Sounds like the show has found yet another way to postpone the eventual Allison-Sheriff Carter hookup for another season.)

No matter how bleak it got aboard the Galactica, Callis usually managed to lighten things up with his portrayal of the scheming and selfish Gaius Baltar. I'm sure he'll fit in perfectly with the charming aww-shucks tone of 'Eureka'. He might even add an edge that is sometimes sorely missing from the show.

'Eureka' returns to Syfy with new episodes on July 9. And remember to catch Callis on 'FlashForward', which returns this week.

i have mixed feelings about this. I'm a huge fan of the man, and am glad he's found more mainstream work. I just wish he had his own scifi show or at least joined a better show. He'd be great on House, as another super self-centered brilliant diagnostician and goes head to head against hugh laurie (they're both british, should be fun to watch..)

Book of Beast was just horrible. Good to see he's moving on to something better.
