Esai Morales' run on "Jericho" may have ended, but he's finding life on another planet.
The actor is the second to join "Caprica," the two-hour pilot and prequel to the Sci Fi Channel's acclaimed series "Battlestar Galactica," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Set 50 years before "BSG," "Caprica" follows two rival families -- the Greystones and the Adamas -- as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies. Morales will portray the integrity-laden yet ruthless Joseph Adama, the father of William Adama, the future admiral of Battlestar Galactica.
