'FlashForward': 'Battlestar Galactica's' James Callis cast in major role

james-callis-syfy-320.jpgThink "Battlestar Galactica's" James Callis (Gaius Baltar) can help "FlashForward" get some of its sci-fi cred back?

ABC confirms to Zap2it that Callis has been cast in a major role on the freshman series, which will begin airing new episodes again next month.

Very few details about Callis' "FlashForward" character are known at this time, though Executive Producer Jessica Borsiczky did tell Sci-fi Wire that he will be a big part of the final episodes of this season, playing a "really exciting, unusual character" somehow mixed up with Olivia (Sonya Walger). 

Any thoughts?

Will the arrival of Baltar bring you back into the "FlashForward" fold this spring?
