Olmos Warns Battlestar Gallactica Stars Away From New Show

BLADE RUNNER star EDWARD JAMES OLMOS is warning die-hard fans of cult sci-fi series BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA to stay away from its upcoming incarnation - even though he's set to star in it.

Olmos is set to appear in a new mini-series of the same name but is certain fans of the original '70s TV show will be far from impressed with the changes made.

He says, "First of all, we're talking about an entirely different look all the way around. There are going to be characters who have the same names from the original series but who are now a different gender. Some people are going to be upset big time."

All the same Olmos, who admits he knew noting of the original series when he took the part, is happy to be a part of the show.

He adds, "I wouldn't have changed my mind about playing COMMANDER ADAMA. The script stands on its own."
