LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Battlestar Galactica" alumnus Rick Worthy is joining the cast of another sci-fi drama.

Worthy is in negotiations for a recurring role on NBC's "Heroes" next season, playing the new partner of Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg): an experienced and capable Los Angeles cop and someone who Matt can lean on for advice.

Worthy is a sci-fi veteran, having appeared on such series as "Enterprise," "Star Trek: Voyager," "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Stargate SG-1," "Dark Angel" and "Odyssey 5."

On "Battlestar," he played humanoid Cylon Simon. He appeared in the recent Julia Roberts/Clive Owen feature "Duplicity."
