It wasn’t that long ago that Syfy pulled the plug on Caprica, the Prequel that went back a couple generations from ‘Battlestar Galactica’. Now they are prepping the newest prequel, Blood & Chrome and casting announcements are starting to hit the news.

To major roles have been announced today, first, playing the role of a younger William Adama is Luke Pasqualino. He’s mostly known for his role on the UK Hit show, ‘Skins’ (not to be confused with the God awful American adaptation)

Playing his grizzled commanding officer, Corker, will be Ben Cotton. He’s had roles in Hellcats, Riese, Caprica,Stargate: Atlantis and Harper’s Island.

“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.”
