Shameful Moments in SyFy Channel History #6: Edward James Olmos is Not a Leading Man

Known collectively as...

1. The one-note character actor who frowned in Ronald D. Moore's..."GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series....

2. The one-note character actor who frowned in...."Miami Vice"....

3. The one-note character actor who frowned in...."Blade Runner"....

Look, Edward James Olmos never had leading man potential. The guy is a frowner. Edward James Olmos is an unremarkable character actor who quite frankly...."Frowns" 95% of everything he is cast in. I think every role is just a paycheck to him. He shows up on stage....and just..."Frowns"....

Edward James Olmos did nothing to dethrone the legendary Lorne Greene as the great Commander Adama. The late Lorne Greene will always be Commander Adama and no one else.

Dare I say it? Lorne Greene as Commander Adama had more of a majestic, formidable, multi-dimensional, and warm screen presence than Alec Guinness ever did as Obi Wan Kenobi. You can't replace that with anybody. There, I said it. OK? 

I still look up to Lorne Greene with awe every time I watch...."Battlestar 1978"....reruns. 

As for Edward James Olmos, he does nothing for me as an actor. He's a frowner. A low-tier character actor.


 Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on 

And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
