This is such an exciting new, James Callis (Dr. Gaius Baltar in Battlestar Galactica) has joined the cast of Syfy’s original series, EUREKA for its fourth season, which premieres on Friday, July 9th 2010.

James Callis will plays Dr. Grant, a former resident of the town whose unexpected return is cause for serious alarm and – considering his romantic interest in Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) – significant friction with Sherriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson).

Gaius Baltar was my favorite character on Battlestar Galactica, so needless to say I am beyond excited to see James Callis in Eureka. I have a feeling he’ll fit right in the tone of the show.

In addition, once again this season series stars Colin Ferguson and Joe Morton will direct episodes and also making her directorial debut is female lead Salli Richardson-Whitfield. Also, special guest stars returning this season include Jaime Ray Newman (“Dr. Tess Fontana”) and Matt Frewer (“Taggart”).

Is it July yet?
