When I asked if he had any plans to return to the 'BSG' franchise in some capacity, Olmos said he wasn't sure and that being a part of the show was a "once in a lifetime experience." He also mentioned director Bryan Singer's upcoming 'Battlestar' film project, produced by original series creator Glen Larson.
"The next thing they're doing with it ['Battlestar'] is working with Glen Larson," Olmos said. "Glen, who created the original franchise, will do it his own way, and I don't think we'll participate in that. I'd love to help him, but I don't think we'll get to." (...)
When asked about Syfy's 'BSG' prequel series, 'Caprica', Olmos said he "liked the pilot very much," and he was looking forward to seeing the prequel's story progress.
Can 'Caprica' repeat 'BSG's success to become one of the boldest and most innovative series currently on TV?
"It's too early to tell," he said. "I haven't seen all of the episodes to air, but it'll be interesting to see."
