Maureen Ryan from the Chicago Tribune has posted a sneak peak at what the Top Ten will be.

 

Top Ten Reasons To Watch The New Season Of “Battlestar Galactica”

10. Chief Petty Officer Tyrol (Aaron Douglas): In the dramatic season opening episode, we save 15% by switching our insurance to Geico.
9. D’Anna Biers (Lucy Lawless): You’ll find out what’s in the hatch and who gets off the island – crap, wrong show.
8. Dr. Baltar (James Callis): My character creates his own line of “honey roasted space nuts.”
7. Lieutenant Sharon Valerii (Grace Park): What else are you going to do, read a book?
6. Number Six (Tricia Helfer): There’s a good chance you’ll get to see me naked.
5. Colonel Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan): There’s a good chance you’ll see me naked.
4. Captain Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber): New FTL drives will allow the colonial fleet to better adjust to gravitational variations and achieve maximum superluminal travel to outrun the pursuing cylon basestars – I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about.
3. Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff): We engage in a life-and-death battle against evil robots… you know, same **** as last year.
2. President Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell): I take on the most challenging task of my political career – doing a lame top ten list on a third-rate talk show.
1. Admiral William Adama (Edward James Olmos): Watch me lead us into war against the Cylons without an exit strategy.

 

UPDATE: The video is now up on the Late Show website.

Aaron to appear on Late Show With David Letterman (March 19, 2008)

It’s been previously reported that EJO, Jamie Bamber and James Callis will be appearing on Letterman on March 19th to read The Top Ten list.

I’m just watching a video of Aaron’s Q&A at the Dallas All-Con convention last weekend (that lucky63 recorded) and he said …..

“They’re taking the top ten cast to New York in a week and a half to do David Letterman. So we’re all going to be on Letterman. I think it airs the 19th. We’re doing the top ten list. The top ten reasons to watch Battlestar Galactica. Which is very cool. And they’re going to write something for me. But I’m not going to say it. I’m going to say something else [crowd laughs] And then I’ll never do Letterman again. No. I’m just kidding. I’ll say whatever they want”.

OMG!!!!! Aaron is going to be on Letterman!!!!!!
