Sundance 2013 Video: Jane Seymour and James Callis on Austenland

[VIDEO]: The stars of two separate 'Battlestar Galactica' series are talking about their new comedy.

"Very, very silly, yes."

Austenland is one of the hit films coming out of this year's Sundance Film Festival. The comedy stars Keri Russell ("The Americans") as Jane, a diehard Jane Austen fan who spends her life savings to go to a fantasy camp run by Jane Seymour (The Wedding Crashers), where she can live through a Jane Austen novel and fall in love with her studly co-stars, which may include James Callis ("Battlestar Galactica"), J.J. Feild (Captain America: The First Avenger), or even one of the rebellious stable boy, who doesn't play by the park's tyrannical, historically-accurate rules, played by Bret McKenzie ("Flight of the Conchords").

James Callis and Jane Seymour talked to CraveOnline about their characters, Seymour's James Bond experience (she played Solitaire in Live and Let Die), and each of them appearing in different versions of the hit sci-fi series "Battlestar Galactica."

Austenland, directed by Napoleon Dynamite co-writer Jerusha Hess and produced by Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer, has already been picked up for distribution by Sony Pictures Classics for an upcoming theatrical release.
