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.'
