Edward James Olmos is in final negotiations and Oscar-nominated
actress Mary McDonnell is set to star in Sci Fi Channel's four-hour
miniseries Battlestar Galactica, says The Hollywood Reporter.
In the updated version of the 1970s sci-fi series, Olmos will portray
Commander Adama, the role played by Lorne Greene in the original
show. McDonnell will play the president of the futuristic society.
I hope they aren't serious. Talk about scraping the bottom of the
barrel. They can have Olmos grimace his way through his lines like he
did on Miami vice.
