- Trivia & Quotes
Bear made his onscreen television debut in the "Deadlock" episode of the Sci Fi Channel television series Battlestar Galactica. He is seen in an uncredited role as a bar patron. His presence in the scene was signaled by the inclusion of a piano, which was Bear's first primary instrument. Katee Sackhoff (playing Kara "Starbuck" Thrace) made a comment about never noticing the piano before. Then a minute or two later, Bear appears in the picture, a few feet behind Katee. Bear confirmed the cameo role on his official blog.
