Some weeks ago we heard our first confirmation and casting of Starz's upcoming Ron Moore-helmed adaptation of 'Outlander,' casting Sam Heughan in the series lead role that brings Dianna Gabaldon's best-selling novels to life. Now, the Starz production has doubled-down on a dose of 'Game of Thrones,' adding HBO star Tobias Menzies in a dual role for the upcoming production.
Fans of the 'Outlander' book series have been eager to get a peek at Starz's upcoming adapted version of the sci-fi romance series, which earlier had been announced to series under 'Battlestar Galactica' helmer Ron Moore. Over the weekend, the premium cable network accidentally announced one of their top contenders for the leading male role, but will it prove true in the coming days?
As excited as we were for 'Battlestar Galactica' creator Ron Moore to return for Syfy's upcoming original series 'Helix,' it seems the prolific sci-fi vet has an even higher-profile gig at Starz! The cable network has officially issued a series order to time travel romance 'Outlander,' based on the popular Diana Gabaldon books of the same name, but just how involved will Ron Moore be?
