Former Battlestar Galactica cast members keep getting more work, especially the really great looking ones (who also have some acting talent). Katee Sackhoff is currently on 24 and made a lasting impression during an appearance on The Big Bang Theory. Tricia Helfer has made appearances on Burn Notice, Human Target and will be a regular on the new TNT series Dark Blue.
And now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, her cylon pal Grace Park has picked up a new TV role as well. Park will join the reboot of CBS’ Hawaii Five-O and play Kona Kalakaua, the niece of squad member Chin Ho Kelly, which will be played by Lost‘s Daniel Dae Kim.
She’s a beautiful and smart champion surfer who is about to graduate from the police academy when McGarrett recruits her to join his team. Of course, as we already told you, McGarrett will be played in the reboot by Moonlight‘s Alex O’Laughlin. Plus, super writer/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are in charge of the show.
However, with Park now involved, I’ve got a real reason to watch this show. And no, not just for the eye candy. . . although that doesn’t hurt.
