The Battlestar Galactica spin off just got an extra amount of win. Patton Oswalt, star of Ratatouille and the upcoming Big Fan, will be a recurring character in the new series. Specifically he will be playing the roll of a talk show host comedian with in the BSG universe.
Oswalt’s character will joke about the Cylon creator’s, Daniel Greystone(played by Eric Stoltz), and his upcoming book. Greystone will become a laughing stock because of Oswalt’s character and tries to get booked on the show to salvage his reputation.
I can only expect the most from Patton Oswalt. In recent years he’s proven himself to be more than just a comedian. His role in Ratatouille and from what I’ve seen of his acting in Big Fan have shown a great amount of maturity compared to his older role in the TV series King of Queens. The setting is a bit different from his other roles, but I look forward to see this self-confessed geek in a familiar setting.
