BSG actor joins Hellcats - I worship at the television altar — LiveJournal
BSG actor joins Hellcats
Aaron Douglas tweeted from SDCC late last night to announce that he has joined the cast of Hellcats!

Aaron is probably best known as Chief Galen Tyrol from Battlestar Galactica, or Smallville fans may remember him from Obscura and Traveler (did Tom suggest casting him?). His current show, The Bridge, was cancelled by CBS yesterday, and evidently Hellcats swooped in to sign him in nothing flat. Smart move! Word on the street is that he will play Bill Curran, the head of the Lancer athletic department.

We have a new promo poster for the show, with a new, slick Hellcats logo. Image courtesy of SpoilerTV, with my thanks! Click for BIGGER.

Yesterday was the first day that production on Hellcats moved to the studio, on a brand new set. It sounds like they may have hit a few bumps in the beginning, and worked a very long day, but obviously they were doing great by the time they finished. Go Hellcats! :)

And I leave you with this, my SDCC feel-good moment of the day: Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay of White Collar dancing to Ke$ha's TiK ToK. Tim has some sexy moves, Matt is adorable, and I think I'm in love with both of them! Thanks to duskwillow for the heads up!

Aren't they too cute? I love the part (at the 1:45 mark) where Matt looks over at Tim and just loses it. LOL!

That poor kid looks seriously stressed. I can't decide if it's because he's standing between two famous actors, he's afraid he's going to mess up, or both.

Ha ha, well played, CW! I approve. Loved him on BSG. :)

I've watched that Matt & Tim vid so many times by now, and it's still awesome.

Another casting coup for Tommy! And not only is Aaron Douglas a good actor, he seems like a totally cool guy.

I've been watching that vid all day, and it still puts a big, goofy grin on my face, every time. Thanks again for sharing it with me. LOVE them!

Thanks for the official news on Aaron. I'm thrilled to have him joining Hellcats. It looks like the whole Hellcats cast is on twitter. Thanks for the tweets, it's great to hear a little from the set.

Thanks for the Matt and Tim dancing video. It put a smile on face first thing this morning! :D

I saw him tweet the news right when I was getting ready to go to bed. Rumors confirmed! :)

I do think just about everyone on Hellcats is on Twitter, with the exception of Matt Barr. He seems to enjoy fan interaction a lot, maybe he'll jump in, too. None of them tweets all that much; I thought it was interesting how that first day at the studio inspired so many to comment on it.

That video is too cute. They're great guys.

I've watched it a bunch of times, and it's still making me smile. :) Matt in particular seems to be having so much fun!

Heh, they really have their dance moves DOWN by the end of that!

Aaron will bring the intensity to Hellcats, no question. This is a very well cast show.

Matt and Tim both seem sweet and so down to earth. It's nice that they were game to play, and had fun with it.

I continue to be impressed with the casting on Hellcats. I'd love to know what Tom's role has been in the process.

Tim is quite sexy there. Matt reminds me of Zachary Quinto there. And I'd love to dance with both of them.

PS The kid in the middle looks like he's in pain.

I'm a sucker for blue jeans with a button down shirt anyway, and Tim has some very nice moves. And you're right, Matt reminds me of ZQ, too! They both look great. I love it when famous people are fun and down-to-earth, rather than way too impressed with themselves.

That poor kid! That vid is going to haunt his future! :)
