Actor and Stargate News

More updates from the past couple of months, in case you missed them elsewhere on the web!

In exciting and mysterious news, both Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping have tweeted that they’re voicing their SG-1 characters for an SG-1 game or app. Michael tweeted: Rumors are true: voicing new SG1 app game. #stargateUnleashed #epicness#badassery pic.twitter.com/OMOfCTS2 We haven’t found other news about the app, but this would be at least the 3rd attempt at a Stargate game, and we hope it finally comes to pass!

Michael’s show, Saving Hope, has been renewed for 18 episodes for Season 2. It will air in Canada and has been sold to foreign markets, while as of now it hasn’t been picked up by a US network. NBC canceled it just before the end of its first season run, but perhaps another network will pick it up for next summer.

Ming Na has been cast as a lead in Joss Whedon’s upcoming super-hero Avengers’ spin-off series, S.H.I.E.L.D. This is a huge deal, as the show is highly anticipated in the US markets at least. We give Ming our hearty congratulations!

Paul McGillion appeared in an episode of Fringe a few weeks ago. Try to catch it if you missed it — it’s called “The Recordist”. Paul was also recently filming another episode of Once Upon a Time, presumably to reprise his role as the Knave of Hearts. Keep an eye out for that one.

Joe Flanigan recently traveled to Austin, Texas to film a pilot for a possible new series on the Lifetime network called The Secret Lives of Wives. He would play the husband of Reed, who is played by Salli Richardson, who co-starred on Syfy’s Eureka.

Ben Browder will appear in an episode of the hit series Arrow. More details here.

Brian J. Smith tweeted that he’ll be appearing in the Tennessee Williams play The Glass Menagerie with Zachary Quinto and others, in a Boston, MA production. More details here at Playbill. He will also be in one episode of the new Syfy series Defiance.

Louis Ferreira appeared in four episodes of the second season of The L.A. Complex. Fans should look for the show on-line or hopefully soon on DVD.

Finally, Stargate writer-producer Carl Binder will be heading back up to Vancouver, this time to be the show-runner for Hallmark’s new series Cedar Cove, starring Andie MacDowell.

A few weeks after it was revealed that director Christopher Nolan was planning the same type of prologue that he utilized for the Dark Knight back in December 2007—attached to I Am Legend IMAX showings—the MPAA has officially rated a similar block of video to be shown off when Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol arrives in IMAX theaters on December 16. As with the other Batman features under Nolan’s direction, the 6-minute prologue has been officially rated PG-13 for “some violence”.

Lou Diamond Phillips an Honorary Wildlife Guardian

This announcement from Imperial Valley News:

San Diego, California – San Diego Zoo Global is expanding its conservation focus through the launch of its new Wildlife Conservancy. By bringing the worldwide conservation efforts of San Diego Zoo Global under a single umbrella, the Wildlife Conservancy provides people around the world an easy way to support and become involved with the organization’s efforts to save critically endangered species.

Although in its infancy, the Conservancy has already gained strong support from notable personalities and a sizable donation. Celebrities Lou Diamond Phillips and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have been named honorary Wildlife Guardians, helping to encourage others to become involved in this effort.

The Wildlife Conservancy is dedicated to bringing endangered species back from the brink of extinction by helping to preserve imperiled wildlife, bank crucial genetic resources, prevent wildlife disease, conserve habitat, restore nature, and inspire change. For nearly 100 years, San Diego Zoo Global has worked with rare and endangered species, managing them in both captive and wild settings, including more than 15 successful programs where species have been reintroduced into the wild. By sharing groundbreaking work on endangered species such as the giant panda, African elephant, Hawaiian crow, and California condor, and giving people a glimpse into these animals’ lives and the measures taken to preserve them, individuals will not only develop a better understanding of these species but will also be inspired to join the effort. With 100 conservation projects in 35 countries around the world, the Conservancy needs help from supporters like Phillips and Ferguson to grow its efforts.

Stargate Briefing: Browder, Flanigan, Hewlett, Shanks, Tapping

Update on Ben Browder’s Projects

Here’s a new trailer for Bad Kids Go to Hell movie, BEN BROWDER’s most recent film project, which is to be released sometime in 2012:

The Naught for Hire webseries, for which Browder co-produces and stars, is still in “development.” We thought we were getting a premiere of it at July’s San Diego Comic Con, but a new contract with Paramount Digital has apparently caused the premiere to be delayed. In an interview conducted in August with fansite Naught P.I. Agency, producer/writer Jeffrey Berman stated, “Naught, obviously, has a completed script for the entire series and most of the cast is in place. What we are still working on is securing the funds to shoot the project. Since we’re aiming for a web telecast, the funding process is not traditional and as this is still new territory it’s taking longer than we had hoped.” The new launch is now slated to be sometime in 2012.

More on Joe Flanigan’s Metal Hurlant Chronicles

The Sun has a report on the Twitter updates from JOE FLANIGAN and co-star Kelly Brook as they filmed scenes together for the new series Metal Hurlant Chronicles. Flanigan tweeted, “Fighting Turtle Sapiens outside of Brussels with @IAMKELLYBROOK. Who said Halloween isn’t real? Call it Heavy Metal.” He also published a relevant page of the comic book series that is the foundation of this new TV series, which will debut in April 2012 (not yet in the US, though). Brook gave readers an idea of what they’re doing by posting a picture of her posing with two of the “Turtle Sapiens.”

David Hewlett Chooses His Favorites in a Pumpkin-Carving Contest

DAVID HEWLETT was honored by Blastr to be the judge in their sci-fi-themed pumpkin carving contest. Make sure to check out the results at the link.

Update on Michael Shanks’ Projects

MICHAEL SHANKS’ Lifetime movie The Pastor’s Wife premiered last night, but they’ll be airing repeats in case you missed it. Daemon’s TV described his performance, “Michael Shanks shines as the Pastor who is charming to the outside world, but a monster in his own home.” Check your local listings for the repeat schedule.

Saving Hope‘s home is Canada’s CTV, but it’s possible that American viewers will get to see the new show. The Hollywood Reporter recently posted, “Entertainment One and ‘Rookie Blue’ creator Ilana Frank will pitch the Erica Durance and Michael Shanks-starring medical drama in Los Angeles next week.” Rookie Blue, also a Canadian show that stars SG-1 guest star Ben Bass (Dr. Steven Rayner, 4.14 “The Curse”), airs on ABC in the United States.

New Project for Amanda Tapping

AMANDA TAPPING has a new film project! This news from Fans Share:

It appears that there is a new big screen, double team supreme developing as Smallville actress Kristin Kreuk and Lord Of The Rings star Billy Boyd are set to team up yet again.

[…] Now they have both signed up to star in the Armen Evrensel, sci-fi comedy movie Space Milkshake, which will begin filming early next year.

Space Milkshake centres around four space workers on a rundown orbital sanitation station, who run into a few problems when they salvage a strange device from a space ship wreckage. Director Armen Evrensel penned the screenplay for the movie, which will also star Amanda Tapping and Robin Dunne. Space Milkshake is expected to be released late 2012 or early 2013.

Kreuk and Boyd aren’t the only pair doing another project together; Robin Dunne is Tapping’s co-star in her hit sci-fi series Sanctuary.

Visit the IMDb record for the movie for more information.

Select Your Top Stargate Icons

SFX Magazine did a survey to find out who their readers’ sci-fi favorites were, and the results show that many of their readers are Stargate fans!

SFX Magazine’s Top 100 Sci-Fi Icons: Stargate Icons

99. Nicholas Rush

Nicholas Rush in MALICEA recent addition to the Stargate saga, Dr. Nicholas Rush, portrayed by Scotsman Robert Carlyle, is the type of character that you don’t know whether to love or to hate. Always thinking ahead several moves—he is a chess player, after all—Rush saw the discovery of Destiny as one of the most significant events in human history—and he had a major part in that discovery. His goals were often out of sync with the rest of the Icarus Project’s personnel, but he was depended upon to get them through the tough spots, and he often did.

95. Jack O’Neill

Jack O'Neill in ONE FALSE STEPHe was the first to walk through the Stargate in the movie and has been with us ever since to watch our backs! A Sci-Fi Icon list would not be complete without him. We got to love him as Colonel Jack O’Neill, leader of the flagship team SG-1, and now he’s all grown up to become Lt. General Jack O’Neill, commander of Homeworld Security. As the only military man who could say he’s been there and done it all, Jack has always been there for his people. Portrayed by TV legend Richard Dean Anderson, we cannot imagine anyone else filling Jack’s boots!

63. Daniel Jackson

Daniel Jackson in THE PEGASUS PROJECTIt’s only appropriate that the man who opened the Stargate and made regular travel through it possible should be the top representative of Stargate in the poll. Dr. Daniel Jackson might have been a “dweeb,” but he certainly knew his stuff and learned how to adapt quickly to his changing role as the expert on human cultures that had been transplanted across the galaxy by the Goa’uld. And after the defeat of the System Lords, Jackson continued to show how closely linked he was to the Stargate by becoming the foremost expert on the Ancients, the builders of the Stargates, Destiny, and Atlantis. Ever resourceful and quick-thinking, Daniel’s ability to solve riddles and puzzles, as well as negotiate treaties, made him Stargate Command’s most respected civilian employee the military had ever had and his actor Michael Shanks one of the Internet’s most closely followed television actors.

Our Own Stargate Icon Poll

Admittedly, we don’t have the same readership as SFX, but we thought that it might be fun to choose our own Icons, limited to our main Stargate characters. We can have another poll for Top Villain, Top Secondary, etc., later—just let us know—but right now we’re concentrating on the main cast of characters. Choose your Top 5 here:

The Rest of SFX’s Poll

You can see the rest of the 100 Sci-Fi Icons as declared by SFX readers by visiting SoEntertain.Me: Science Fiction News: SFX Names Top 100 Sci-Fi Icons, wherein you’ll see that Ben Browder’s John Crichton made 49th. Thanks to our LJ subscriber ivanov_vladimir for the heads-up and link.

Coming Soon: Levesque, Luttrell, Shanks, Staite

Stargate Solutions Coming Soon FeaturevWe’ve updated our new COMING SOON feature recently with the addition of projects for ELYSE LEVESQUE, RACHEL LUTTRELL, MICHAEL SHANKS, and JEWEL STAITE. Additionally, we’ve discovered some more details for projects done by BEAU BRIDGES, BEN BROWDER, ALAINA HUFFMAN, and ROBERT PICARDO.

So, without further ado, here are the announcements and updates!

NEW PROJECTS

ELYSE LEVESQUE was mentioned in an interview with Twilight Saga‘s Tinsel Corey at Celebuzz.com about a new project she’s just finished called Fishing Naked. “It’s a comedy, I’ve been looking to do more comedic stuff. It’s called Fishing Naked, and I know the title sounds a little risqué but it’s more like your connection to the earth. Bronson Pelletier is in it, and also Elyse Levesque from Stargate Universe. And it is sort of like American Pie with a little bit of a supernatural twist. Its hilarious – I was reading it last night again and I was cracking up! It is a really funny movie.” The movie is being released in September 2011, but we don’t have a poster for it yet, so Elyse’s Coming Soon placeholder image sits in its place.

Way back, we reported that RACHEL LUTTRELL got a guest spot in Stevel Seagal’s new show True Justice. Since that report, Rachel said that it was a recurring role as a police officer, but we don’t have the names of the episodes in which she appears. The show debuted in the UK on 5USA on July 6 and it is still airing on Wednesday nights. The police action drama takes place on the dangerous streets of Seattle, Washington. While it was being produced, the show went through some name changes, and there’s talk that it will be released in the United States as a series of DTV movies. We’ll see, but in the meantime, Rachel’s recurring role status has been added to COMING SOON.

MICHAEL SHANKS has been busy going back and forth between Vancouver and Toronto lately because he’s working on projects that are being filmed in both locations. Not long ago, he filmed a pilot called Saving Hope in Toronto, then he returned to Vancouver where he shot The Pastor’s Wife. Then, back in Toronto, he filmed a guest spot in Flashpoint, and is now back in Vancouver filming a small role in the Matt Damon movie Elysium (aka Baja Dunes), which is “…a sci-fi story set 100 years in the future, with Matt Damon playing an ex-con and Jodie Foster playing the head of state of an alien race. A colonization plot thread has been rumored as part of the movie,” according to SlashFilm.com. The release date currently set for this movie is March 1, 2013! All of these projects, except the pilot, have now got posters in COMING SOON.

JEWEL STAITE just revealed via her Twitter that she has a role in Stargate alum MARTIN GERO‘s new six-part, hour-long series for CTV called Highland Gardens (working title). Details for this project can be found at the Bell Media PR website, which describes the series: “Set in and around an apartment-style hotel that draws aspiring performers from Canada, the U.S. and all over the world, HIGHLAND GARDENS is a no-holds-barred, character-driven relationship drama that follows the exploits of six young hopefuls in search of celluloid and stardom in Hollywood. Full of heart-rending moments, salacious temptations and hilarious escapades, HIGHLAND GARDEN’s coming-of-age dwellers grapple with life’s defining moments as they deal with the unreality of the show-biz industry.” Jewel plays the “street-smart Haligonian Raquel, who’s frightened of becoming yesterday’s news.” They’ll be moving their filming from Toronto to Hollywood in the fall. There’s no premiere date set.

UPDATED PROJECTS

We reported that BEAU BRIDGES will be in the Family Movie Night special Home and Away, and now we’ve got an update on that project: It’s title has been changed to Game Time: Tackling the Past and it will premiere on September 3 on NBC at 8/7c. If “Family Movie Night” sounds familiar, it’s because JOE FLANIGAN starred in one of its installments, Change of Plans. The Family Movie Night website has not been updated for Beau’s movie yet, but we expect that to happen soon.

We also reported that BEN BROWDER got a role in Bad Kids Go to Hell, but inadvertently left his Coming Soon poster out of the feature’s launch! We also knew about ROBERT PICARDO‘s role in The Legends of Nethiah, but we left out that poster, too! We’ve now corrected our errors of omission!

Syfy put out a press release about their new show Alphas (posted by TV By the Numbers), so now we have the name of the episode and its premiere date for ALAINA HUFFMAN‘s guest spot. Her episode will be airing this coming Monday, August 8, at 10/9c, and another Stargate alum, PETER WINGFIELD, will also be guesting in the same episode.

THAT’S IT FOR NOW…WE THINK

As our Stargate actors move on from the franchise into new roles, we’ll do our best to keep up. You’ll see all that we’ve got in the COMING SOON feature. We’ll do our best to give you a “heads-up” for the coming week in our regular STARGATE PLANNER feature that’s posted each Sunday. And then after the movie and television spots have been screened or aired, we’ll add images of the actors in their new roles to their galleries on their profile pages in our ACTORS…BEYOND THE EVENT HORIZON feature. Even with all of this research, we’re bound to miss something, even though we’re monitoring their Twitter accounts in our STARGATE TWITTER SUPERFEED, and that’s where you come in. If you hear of a new role or a release date or anything like that, please contact us so that we can update our readers. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our actor-specific features.
