    I think it is quite possible.
    One of the (ex)presidents closest!
    Has anyone concidered him being a cylon so far?

    I hadn't particularly, but I do really like the idea. Although other than for the purposes of bringing back the actor, I'm not sure what's to be gained from it. If another Billy-Cylon showed up, all the characters would be shocked for a minute and then say "Boy, good thing he got shot last season..." and then move on. Cause anything that the previous Billy had done to sabotage the humans would be pretty much moot at this point. Still an interesting idea.

    I hope not.

    It would be a safety net for the writers that shows don't need to have.

    "Hmmm we killed off (insert character name), but he isn't working on anything else, so we should bring him back as a Cylon!"

    Sometimes people just die. Much more dramatic when they don't come back.

    I had thought about it and i think it would be a really good idea. think anout it,Rosilin put so much trust in Billy and treated him like family. If he became a cylon it could show just how the cylons can completly infiltrate the humans.

    I don't think this would work dramatically at all. If they want to bring the actor back, Billy could appear in a flashback or in Roslin's dreams. I don't think he was that interesting a character. Not enough to play such a central role on the show if he were revealed to be a Cylon. For many reasons, this would be a bad idea.

    I've been thinking this too...

    ... thay said all the actors had signed up for next season - so him too ??

    It could be interesting because he would still rival Lee for Dualla and girls like bad boys - and being a male cylon is bad :-)

    although his web site says "Soon to be unemployed..." so maybe not.

    Actually....when yhey say things like this, they mean the core cast...Adama, Apollo, starbuck, six, baltar , roslin,and boomer.

    characters like D, the cheif, cally, Cottle, ..et al...are not necessarily contracted.

    RDM said in one of the podcasts that Billy wanted to move on. So they wrote him out.

    I have thought Billy was a cylon from the beginning, so I wouldn't be surprised!
