Yes, the striking resemblance between Alexander Siddig (or whatever
he's calling himself these days) and James Callis has been noted many
times. They often even get mistaken for each other at conventions. The
fact that they both worked for Ron Moore at some point led some
(including myself) to speculate that Moore may have originally
intended to have Siddig play Baltar in BSG, but cast a look-a-like
when he couldn't get him (for whatever reason). Several other DS9 and
Trek regulars went on to appear on BSG, incidentally (incl. Siddig's
own ex-wife, Nana Visitor).

Whatever the reason behind it, there is no way it was just a
coincidence (like Ron Moore of all people didn't notice?).

The resemblance was so striking that it wasn't until I looked at the
end credits of the BSG mini-series that I realized Baltar WASN'T
played by Siddig.

Maybe it's because I key in more on voice than appearance, but I never
thought it was Siddig. His voice resonates less than Callis.

Probably the usual thing that happens when a non-Muslim woman marries
a Muslim male. They get sick and tired of the "Allah sez all woman is
to be treated like property/shit/whore/demon and is only good for
fracking and beating when she's not raising the kids" bullshit. I've
known quite a few women who married Muslim guys they met in college,
and except for the two that got suckered back to the Middle East, they
divorced the bastards before the sting from the first backhand had
subsided. Those other two managed to get back home, but one of them
had to leave her three kids behind to be raised as ignorant
towelheads.

You're a mighty good cretin -- Sid's about as 'muslim' as I am 'christian'.

I would suggest that you actually perform a minimum of research on
people, before shooting your dirty mouth off about them - particularly
if it is riddled with ignorance and stupidity.

And, just for the record, I hold no love for mulsim or their dumb religion.

The reason why their relationship broken apart is for the oldest of
reasons -- infidelity.

You're an uninformed idiot -- his birth name was Siddig Al-Fadil, and
he is a Muslim. He changed his name to Alexander Siddig because he
found his real name was causing him casting issues. He's been quite
candid about that, especially after 9/11.

Now, kindly go I love yourself. I've seen your posts around here before,
and everyone hates your guts because you're such a troll.

I love you. Read my post, you whinny little troll. I have done research,
and have taken personal testimony. If you had read my post you'd know
that.

Go to hell and burn, troll. People like you should not be allowed to
post on boards like this.

I guess based on shempo's polite outburst, which followed his racist
spoutings, we can assume that he's got a wounded nerve to tend to.

Thanks, you pretty much validated my earlier comment about you.

Yeah, I guess you also believe that Barack Hussein Obama is a muslim --
I mean, after all, that's his name, so he *must* be, according to your
logic.

We aren't discussing his name, but his alleged Muslim fanaticism and
mistreatment of women - though, nice effort at distracting the argument.

I guess being a personal friend of his definitely makes me an
uninformed idiot. Seeing as how you got all your valuable information
from teh internetz, I guess you are Teh Rulerz...

Sorry, I've known Sid since around 1996, and he is none of the things
you make him out to be, in your short-sighted blunders of racial hate.

Yeah, right Daffy. And I've known George Lucas since 1956. We have
lunch together twice a week, and he brings Britney Spears with him on
occasion too.

Lying troll.

Ah, these reactionary outbursts of pure, unfethered envy make it all
worthwhile.
