Battlestar Galactica: The Exposition opens tomorrow at Seattle's Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum. Tahmoh is scheduled to appear at tonight's Members' Only event.
Also on Saturday, The Hostage screens at 10:00 pm at the Beverly Hills Film, TV, and New Media Festival. The festival website has more details about getting tickets and other films showing at the same event.
David Eick praised Tahmoh twice during a recent SyFy press tour for Caprica.
We’re in Vancouver. It’s a smaller pool of talent just in terms of the population. And we got so lucky with “Battlestar.” When you go down the line, I mean Tahmoh Penikett and — I can go on and on with the people we found locally. It’s a temptation to want to cast a lot of those guys again, Cylon and non-Cylon alike, just because they’re damn good actors and, you know, it’s hard to find good actors.For those who don't watch Caprica, Sasha's character, like Tahmoh's was suppose to appear in just one episode, but was brought on for more a more substantial role.
That’s one of the great things about TV. You can discover talent in a way that you can’t in movies. And I was talking about Tahmoh Penikett earlier. I keep damning Sasha Roiz with fain praise by telling him he’s the Tahmoh Penikett of “Caprica” because he’s this great discovery.
Reader Bertha found this great Trick r Treat behind the scenes video. Tahmoh appears in multiple parts of this first part of the video, but not the second.
