Luke Pasqualino and Ben Cotton have been cast in Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome. Luke Pasqualino has been cast as William Adama and Ben Cotton has been cast as Coker. Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome tells the story of
the early days of Adama as a young soldier joining the Galactica and fighting the Cylon menace. It is set during the 10th year of the first Cylon war…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.
I was pulling for Nico Cortez – written about here: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome: Greenlit by SyFy Channel – who played Adama in Battlestar Galatica: Razor but the SciFi show decided to go younger. What do you think of the current casting for Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome?
