Kristin Kreuk Joins '17th Precinct' -- This Pilot Keeps Getting Better!

Kristin Kreuk, 17th PrecinctKristin Kreuk has joined the cast of '17th Precinct.' Please excuse us while we flail about in excitement.

Let's do a brief history of '17th Precinct' and why it may be the best pilot ever. First, news broke that 'Battlestar Galactica' mastermind Ron Moore was developing a show at NBC. Then, the plot of the series came out: Harry Potter meets 'Law & Order.' Boom, we were sold.

However, it just kept getting better from there! Casting began with 'The West Wing' star Stockhard Channing. Then 'Battlestar Galactica''s Jamie Bamber joined the cast, quickly followed by fellow BSG vets James Callis and Tricia Helfer. Matt Long and Eamonn Walker also boarded the project.

And now, TVLine is reporting Kreuk (you may know her from a little show called 'Smallville'), will appear in the pilot.

Lana Lang Kreuk will play Susan Longstreet, the wife of Bamber's character. While it's only a guest role for now, it's safe to say she'd show up again if NBC picks up the series.

The pilot is set in a fictional town where magic trumps science. Helfer plays a necromancer (like a magical coroner), Callis and Channing are detectives, and Bamber is a crime scene expert.

To summarize why you should be excited: Magic, cops, 'Battlestar Galactica' cast, Kristin Kreuk.

Tell us: Are you as excited about this pilot as we are?

I agree with Michael. The addition of Kreuk to any TV show or movie, however minor the role, is nothing to celebrate.

It will be interesting to see who they cast in the role of the supernatural sex-changer. And whether the person they cast will be expected to play both sexes of the character. Lucy Lawless made a pretty amusing dude in a single episode of Xena: Warrior Princess and she was on BSG, so maybe they'll consider her for the role. Although, only if her appearance on 17th Precinct doesn't interfere with her schedule to appear in season 2 of Spartacus.

There's certainly plenty to be excited about in regards to this pilot, but Kreuk's wooden "acting" (and the use of that term in relation to Kreuk, even with quotations, is extremely generous on my part) is the first bit of news that serves to dampen my interest. At least the rest of the cast so far is genuinely talented.
