Fox has signed Battlestar Galactica beauty Tricia Helfer to a one-year talent holding deal, as part of which she will star in a series for the network, likely a drama.

Fox casting boss Marcia Shulman tells the Reporter that Helfer "wowed" the crowd last spring with her role in the passed-over sci-fi pilot Them. Later, upon spying Helfer in the indie Walk All Over Me, Shulman noted, "She had a pretty remarkable range, she showed vulnerability and strength. She is a star."

What's your take? Does Helfer have the goods to soar far beyond Battlestar? - MWM
