Patton Oswalt Goes To Caprica

Ratatouille actor on Battlestar spin-off

Yes, it's a TV story, but we thought you might be interested to know that Patton Oswalt has signed up for a recurring role on Battlestar Galactica spin-off / prequel Caprica, for the SyFy* Channel.

Oswalt, lately the voice of Remy in Ratatouille and host of the Disney panels at Comic-Con, joins the show as a comedy talkshow host on Caprica - a role for which the sometime-stand-up is well suited. Lead characters Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) and Amanda Graystone (Paula Malcomson) will appear on the talkshow at some point in the show.

The show's currently shooting in Vancouver, and watch this space for more on that as it approaches release.
