Olmos has been in the movie biz for more than 34 years, but has recently scored a whole new legion of geeky fans thanks to his role on Battlestar Galactica.
He played Admiral William Adama on the cult show, and admits his nerdy fanbase turned him on to the sci-fi genre.
He explains, Ive certainly learned to like it. I was never into any of that except for Ray Bradbury novels back in the day. Then I realized his books were similar to Battlestar in the fact that there are no creatures we arent battling anything except ourselves and that can be a whole lot scarier!
Olmos and his sci-fi crew just went into production yesterday (Aug. 18) on the Galactica movie, and he hopes die-hard fans realize the film is made especially for them.
He says, The movie is for people who really understand the show. Its going to show a real portrait of whats going on in the Cylon world during the first season.
