Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome Casting Of The Day: It's official, Luke Pasqualino (above) from the sexy UK hit "Skins" will play fighter-pilot prodigy William Adama. Score!
Ben Cotton from "Hellcats" will put down the pom poms to play his cynical, overseeing officer. Should be a nice switch for Cotton. You know at least his mom will be happy he's not playing a convict in Blood And Chrome.
Here's the official rundown of their characters:
Pasqualino will star as the young, talented fighter pilot William Adama, a recent Academy graduate who finds himself assigned to the newest Battlestar in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with Coker (Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 45 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.
One big question remains: Will SyFy do the series justice? Or will they be Cylons, who are secretly going to destroy the awesomeness that is Kobol's rep? Only TV time will tell....
