On the heels of the news that Deadwood's Paula Malcolmson had landed the female lead in Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica prequel movie/backdoor pilot, Esai Morales has joined the Caprica cast in the role of Joseph, a "deeply passionate man with a strong sense of justice - and someone you wouldn't want as your enemy," says the Reporter. Oh, and Joe's last name is Adama, as in the father of one day Galactica commander William.

Morales most recently had a run on Jericho (ah, Jericho), but I'll always remember him from Bad Boys (the 1983 one).

What's your take? A pretty good familial match, eh? - MWM
