The actor, who starred as Lee 'Apollo' Adama in Battlestar Galactica until it was cancelled early last year said that BSG's prequel is totally different to the main show.
"I saw the pilot but I'm not in any way involved - it's not something I think about too often!" he told DS.
"I liked it. I've got to be honest, for me it was a bit too teeny and domestic to really fire my imagination but they're trying to make a different show to Battlestar.
"The things I enjoyed about Battlestar was the social-political side of it and I felt it was a bit domestic."
Caprica begins Friday, January 22 on Syfy.
