    Amazing newwws! Any Battlestar Galactica alumun is always welcome to my shows, but Michael Trucco was always one of my favs and Revenge is also one my favorite shows at the moment, so this is a perfect fit!

  2. Stella says:

    “It wasn’t immediately clear what impact, if any, the actor’s Revenge duties would have on his HIMYM stint.”

    He already finished shooting with HIMYM. He wrote so in one of his tweets. Jeez, aren’t you suppose to know this things??

  3. TMW says:

    Damn, from the headline I was hoping it would be Jamie Bamber as the eldest Grayson spawn.

  4. YES! Excited that Michael Trucco is all over my telebox. Good stuff.

  5. Jon says:

    I’m more excited about JR Bourne being on Revenge than Trucco.

  8. Dizzle says:

    Um…. So what about Fairly Legal? Any news on his regular gig being renewed?

    i don’t know what any of these shows are. Is this on cable? My nephew said he can watch battlestar on the calculator, but where do you find it?

    • mia says:

      Castle, Revenge and HIMYM are all on basic network tv (at least in North America). Fairly Legal is on USA which is a cable channel. Battlestar Galactica is over but it aired on SyFy. You can get the dvds for all the shows or stream them on several places on the internet. They aren’t hard to find.

    Why do you use phrases like “TVLine has learned exclusively?”
