Luke Pasqualino, Young Adama, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and ChromeWilliam Adama has been reborn.

The iconic commander of the 'Battlestar Galactica' fleet, who was played by Edward James Olmos in the Syfy series of the same name, will be played in the upcoming 'Blood and Chrome' prequel by Luke Pasqualino from the U.K. version of 'Skins,' according to EW.

'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome,' a backdoor pilot for a possible young Adama series, chronicles the character's entry into the ongoing Cylon War. 'Husker' Adama is itching to get in the fight, but in 'Blood and Chrome,' he'll be paired with Coker, an officer who has served on the front lines and wants nothing more than to be done with fighting. Coker will be played by Ben Cotton, EW reports.

As I reported in this October story about 'Blood and Chrome,' the pilot, which was written by 'BSG' writer Michael Taylor, will go into production this year, but it's not clear if it will air in 2011 or in early 2012.

EXCLUSIVE: Syfy Gives the Greenlight to Young Adama 'Battlestar' Spinoff; Movie, Possible Series to Come

A few months ago, the Syfy network commissioned an online series called 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,' a chronicle of the war experiences of young William Adama.

The network liked Michael Taylor's script for the project so much that Syfy will air 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' on the network as the pilot for a possible young Adama TV series.

Mark Stern, Syfy's executive vice president of original programming and the co-head of original content for Universal Cable Productions, said the network hoped to begin production on the pilot in Vancouver in early 2011.

"When we read Michael's script, it was so clearly a full-blown pilot for a series," Stern said in a Thursday interview. "The scope is fantastic and bigger, I think, than anticipated, so we said, 'Let's do it as a 2-hour backdoor pilot.' ... We're trying to get up and running as soon as possible."

Now that we got the confirmed greenlight for the Battlestar Galactica spin-off series, Caprica, of course we can expect to see more details of the series trickle in. Just today, for example, sources have provided us with casting information for the series. Cool stuff!

Anyone familiar with the details of the show knows that Caprica will center around two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, and the goings on leading up to the Cylons as we see them on the show now. Now we can get a sense of what the characters on the show will look like and perhaps make our own wishlist of who we'd like to see in the roles. I warn you that there are what to some will consider SPOILERS ahead.
