James Callis: 'Battlestar Galactica' Finale Would Even Make Hitler Cry

James Callis, who so brilliantly plays Dr. Gaius Baltar on 'Battlestar Galactica', promises that fans won't be disappointed with how the series comes to a close as it returns for its final string of episodes in January.

"I don't think anything could prepare you guys for what happens at the end. We weren't prepared," he tells 'LA Weekly'.

"It's quite — do we use the phrase 'space opera'? There is something operatic about the ending of the show, only in the sense that it's like a full orchestra. Imagine very single person in the cast represents an instrument, and you've heard their theme or fugue."

"And then all the instruments play together. Everybody involved in this thing together — it's like the '1812 Overture.' Not only have you got all of the violins and the flutes, you've also got the flipping cannons they brought off Napoleon's ship, blowing off the roof. It's going off with a bang, this thing."

"Honestly you can't be disappointed," he says. "I think if Adolf Hitler were back, he'd be crying in his handkerchief."

Meanwhile, Sci Fi Channel has officially greenlit 'Caprica', the prequel to the hit series that will be set fifty years prior to the seminal attack on human civilization by the Cylons. Production is slated to begin in the summer of 2009, and the series is expected to premiere in early 2010.

'Battlestar Galactica' will return to the network's schedule on January 16, 2009.
