Sources confirm to me exclusively that ex-Battlestar Galactica hunk Michael Trucco is joining the ABC mysteromedy for multiple episodes as a new love interest for Stana Katic’s methodical detective.

Trucco — whose character is described as a charismatic cop in the homicide division — will appear in this season’s final four episodes and could return next fall.

Thoughts? Do you give this relationship your blessing? Is Trucco a worthy rival to Nathan Fillion? Put another way, if your house was on fire and you could only carry out one man, who would you choose — Fillion or Trucco? Cast your vote in the comments!
