James CallisAs if '17th Precinct' didn't sound wonderful enough already, today comes news that yet another 'Battlestar Galactica' veteran has booked a role in the NBC pilot.

James Callis, otherwise known as 'BSG' scientist Gaius Baltar, will work alongside former costar Jamie Bamber in the series, Deadline reports.

The series, headed by 'BSG' mastermind Ron Moore, follows cops in a world where magic is real -- think 'Harry Potter' meets 'Law & Order.' Also on board, according to Deadline: former 'The Deep End' star Matt Long.

Several other stars booked pilots, including 'Greek' star Amber Stevens, who will play a psychiatry intern on 'Weekends at Bellevue,' 'Without a Trace' star Enrique Murciano, who will play a detective alongside Minnie Driver in 'Hail Mary,' and 'Lost' alum Rebecca Mader, who will play a "bitchy" drug rep in 'Work It.'

Greek: The Wish-Pretzel - open thread

GreekI don't know why Greek isn't talked about more. It seems to have everything all those other nighttime soaps have: a young cast, quirky characters, hip music. Maybe being on ABC Family means it gets lost in the shuffle.

Last night's episode was actually a Thanksgiving episode (they're a little ahead of things I guess), with Casey and Rusty's parents going off to Maui and stranding them on campus. What did you think?

Greek"Our friendship can be tested anywhere." - Rusty to Calvin

Since it's July 9, 2007, premiere on ABC Family, Greek has been one of weekly TV guilty pleasures. I've been enjoying its light and fun stories as well as the evolving and imploding relationships and friendships between the characters.

Having had the chance to read a few spoilers about the upcoming season these past few weeks, it looked like Greek would be as fun to watch as it was in its first season. However, something can look good on paper and turn out quite differently on the screen. Luckily, it is not the case for Greek; at least not according to the season premiere, which I had the chance to watch.

Slight spoilers coming up!
