Tahmoh (& other BSG cast) voice Robot Chicken episode

Tahmoh, Katee Sackhoff and Michael Hogan all lent their voices to a recent episode of Comedy Central's Robot Chicken. You can see the segment at the Adult Swim website. Tahmoh voiced Helo (at left), but also Armpit, the failed rapist in an earlier clip.

During the Galactica press preview earlier this summer, Tahmoh revealed how he and the other cast members became involved in the show:

IGN: "Robot Chicken Meets Battlestar Galactica"
Galactica actors to appear on Season 3 of Chicken.

IGN visited the set of Battlestar Galactica this week for a special press event. During a Q&A with Battlestar cast members Jamie Bamber, Michael Hogan, Grace Park, Aaron Douglas and Tahmoh Penikett, Penikett told a story about a brief encounter with Robot Chicken co-creator/writer Seth Green at an after-Grammy party. As Penikett related, Green and "his entourage" walked past, but not before he stopped and gave Penikett a long stare, which Penikett joked he thought meant Green wanted to pick a fight.

However, as it turned out, it was likely simply Green recognizing the Galactica star, because Penikett turned to Hogan and said, "A month and a half later we got called for Robot Chicken, huh Mike?" Penikett didn't reveal what sort of sketch they would be appearing in on the stop-motion series, but it's not difficult to guess a Galactica segment is coming on the show's upcoming third season.
Watch the Battlestar Galactica segment.
(The humor might not be to everyone's taste.)

Watch the Halloween segment with Armpit and the followup.

ETA: The correct direct link to the BSG clip, sorry!
