STARGATE SG-1 UNLEASHED Gives Fans New Adventures for Original Team

The original SG-1 team is back for another adventure! This time in Stargate SG-1 Unleashed, a tablet game to be released on iOS and Android platforms. “Episode 1” is slated for release this coming March. Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, and Amanda Tapping have all tweeted about doing voice work for the game (we’re hoping that Christopher Judge recorded for the game, too, so that the original team is reunited once more)!

Embedded below is the teaser. What do you make of it? Will you be playing this adventure game from MGM and Arkalis Interactive? What season do you think is the setting and who is that Goa’uld that is threatening Earth?

Stargate Briefing: The Alliance, Bridges, Carlyle, Judge, Mallozzi, Momoa, Mullie, Phillips, Staite, Tapping, Wood

Happy New Year!

Here’s hoping that 2012 brings you good health and great happenings!

Stargate, Australian Style

Australia’s getting a Comic-Con of their own this year: Oz Comic-Con! A few Stargate stars have already signed up: JEWEL STAITE and TERYL ROTHERY. They’re hopeful that many more celebrities will be signing up over the next few months in anticipation of the con’s debut on March 31.

Australia was also the home of the developers of the never-released Stargate SG-1: The Alliance video game. They haven’t let termination stop them from creating a trailer featuring their work, however. The Gaming Liberty has extensive coverage of the ill-fated game. Below is the trailer, but The Gaming Liberty article has much, much more.

Beau Bridges Debuts on Broadway January 3

BEAU BRIDGES will be making his Broadway singing debut as corporate tycoon J.B. Biggley in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” to a sold-out audience on January 3 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Bridges got lessons from voice and dance coach Ben Toth.

In other Bridges news, his film Outrun has been given an August 24 release date.

Update on Robert Carlyle

ROBERT CARLYLE’s Once Upon a Time returns from the holiday hiatus on Sunday, January 8, at 8/7c on ABC. He’s made an impression on many in his dual roles of Rumpelstiltskin and Mr. Gold. As noted in ScienceFiction.com writer Jessica Naki’s article “‘Once Upon A Time’: Why Robert Carlyle Won,” some people believe that Carlyle came out a winner after Stargate Universe’s untimely termination after only two seasons.

Mary Seah’s Today Online’s article “Big Stars, Small Screen,” has a few of Carlyle’s thoughts about his American television career:

Robert Carlyle, who currently stars in the series Once Upon A Time, was of the same mind [as Sean Bean’s that the snobbery of whether one was a film star versus a television star has diminished]. “I have always wanted to do a bit of US TV because in the past five to 10 years they’ve raised the bar incredibly. Probably when 24 came along – that changed everything. And then the advent of cable TV,” he said, adding that developments in communications technology also helped change the game. “In the past … there was still an attitude that if you did film, you didn’t do TV, and vice versa. That’s all gone now. I mean, look at it – you can watch movies on the Internet, on the phone, whatever. You don’t have to go to the cinema to see a movie.”

Christopher Judge’s Projects

CHRISTOPHER JUDGE co-stars in the last installment of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight triology, The Dark Knight Rises. The movie premieres July 20.

Judge is currently filming To Have and to Hold. The movie has had several filming locations, including Virginia, Cayman Islands, and the Bahamas. Judge co-stars with Aiden Turner (“All My Children”), Kelly Greyson (“Alone Yet Not Alone”), Rusty Joiner (“Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Mark Dacascos (Hawaii Five-0) and John Rhys-Davies (“Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”). A release date has not yet been announced, but is set for this year.

Stallone About Momoa: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a guy move like this”

Catch a video interview with Bullet to the Head star Sylvester Stallone at Best Movies Ever News & Reviews as he talks about the physical demands of this action film that co-stars JASON MOMOA. The legendary action star praises Momoa’s moves in their fire-ax fighting sequence. Bullet to the Head is being released April 13 to American movie theaters.

Lou Diamond Phillips in Celebrity Cook-Off

There are six episodes and six celebrities: Olympic gold medalist swimmer Summer Sanders; Golden Globe-nominated actor Lou Diamond Phillips (The King and I); recording artist-actor Aaron Carter (The Fantasticks); singer, actor and founding member of ‘N Sync, Joey Fatone (Rent); recording star-actress Taylor Dayne (Aida); Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Coolio; comedian, writer and actor Cheech Marin; and Miss USA 2011 Alyssa Campanella. One of these celebrities will be sent home each week until there is only one still standing.

A brief interview about his secret weapon has been published at Zap2It Blog:’Celebrity Cook-Off’s’ Lou Diamond Phillips: ‘My new secret weapon: homemade Wild Turkey bourbon barbecue sauce’.

Interview with Martin Wood

MARTIN WOOD directed lots and lots of Stargate, and now he’s a producer, writer, and director for the hit sci-fi show Sanctuary, which stars AMANDA TAPPING and was created by Stargate vet DAMIAN KINDLER. Steve Eramo of The Morton Report got some time to talk with Wood about his career, which spans over 20 years, and the challenges he faced during Season 4 of Sanctuary. Although incredibly busy with Sanctuary, Wood had the opportunity to direct in Luke Perry’s Goodnight for Justice television movie series.

David Hewlett’s The Whistleblower Coming to Blu-ray

DAVID HEWLETT’s The Whistleblower is getting a Blu-ray release on January 24, 2012, according to High Def Digest. The movie, which Hewlett filmed in Romania in the fall of 2009, was screened at several independent film festivals prior to its recent limited release in American theaters. This description from High Def Digest:

Academy Award winners Rachel Weisz (‘The Constant Gardner’) and Vanessa Redgrave (‘Julia’) head a powerful cast that includes Oscar® Nominee David Strathairn (‘Good Night and Good Luck’) in writer-director Larysa Kondracki’s harrowing dramatic thriller. When Nebraska cop Kathryn Bolkovac (Weisz) accepts a U.N. peacekeeper position in post-war Bosnia, she uncovers a deadly sex trafficking ring. After learning that fellow peacekeepers and military contractors are involved in the ghastly practice and its cover-up, Bolkovac risks her own life to save the lives of others and expose the corruption. With masterful acting and a heart-racing plot, ‘The Whistleblower’ is an acclaimed film inspired by actual events and includes stellar supporting performances from Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”), Monica Bellucci (‘The Matrix Reloaded’) and David Hewlett (“Stargate: Atlantis”).

More on Christopher Judge’s The Dark Knight Rises IMAX Prologue

CHRISTOPHER JUDGE’s The Dark Knight Rises has a six-minute prologue that will be screened in IMAX theaters throughout the United States and Canada on December 16 along with the premiere of Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol.

Rachel Luttrell Guested on NCIS

Apologies to the fans of RACHEL LUTTRELL for missing her guest appearance on NCIS on November 22. Her role was that of Navy Lieutenant Commander Stephanie Mosner in the episode “Sins of the Father.” As a consolation, you can still catch her online on CBS.com’s NCIS video page. It will probably be available for another few weeks as CBS.com keeps the last four episodes for free online streaming.

Picardo Cuts Soundtrack for Scrooge

ROBERT PICARDO has recorded a re-imagined soundtrack of the 1970 musical Scrooge! According to Kik Axe Music, the new recording has just been released in digital (iTunes) and CD forms (December 1). Picardo was thrilled to perform as Scrooge and enthused, “The other wonderful thing about being in anything that is Christmas-related is that you are an evergreen. It becomes relevant again every 12 months. It’s fun to be in something that people can either punch up on their computer every year or pull the disk out of their CD cabinet and enjoy it, year after year, because the music is so great.” Visit Kik Axe Music for more information about the release, including a chance to obtain a CD signed by Picardo himself.

New Teaser for Amanda Tapping’s Space Milkshake

Hardly a day goes by that we don’t get an alert about BEAU BRIDGES, so we’ve gathered just a few links here for your perusal:

Christopher Judge’s Filming Projects and Convention Appearances

CHRISTOPHER JUDGE’s The Dark Knight Rises finished principal photography on November 14, according to Super Hero Hype, who has monitored co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s social media comments. The movie stars Christian Bale as Batman in this final installment in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. Super Hero Hype said, “In addition to India, the international shoot took place in England and Scotland and in the United States in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, New York and New Jersey.”

Speaking of filming projects, Judge canceled his appearance for the Official Stargate Convention in Los Angeles that was held this past weekend because “shooting his new movie prevents him from appearing at the show.” This new movie project might be To Have and To Hold, which Judge tweeted about starting on October 11. But given the time frame, this new movie project could be something else. We’ll let you know what we find out.

The next convention that Judge is scheduled to attend (that we know of) is the 2012 Emerald City Comicon, being held March 30 through April 1 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle.

Paul McGillion in Christmas Magic

PAUL McGILLION stars as a widower who is just about to give up on life because his restaurant is failing. He’s saved through the workings of angels in this new Hallmark Christmas movie. We just received notice that it will be premiering Sunday, December 18, at 8/7c on Hallmark.

Jason Momoa is One of the “Sexiest Men Alive”

JASON MOMOA was just named No.9 as People Magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive”! Now, we already knew that Momoa is one fine-looking guy, even under his dreads as Ronon Dex, but it’s good to know that he’s finally getting noticed by the rest of the world! Congrats, Jason!

Momoa’s sword-wielding, well-built body is on display in Conan the Barbarian, which you’ll get to see on DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D when they are released Tuesday, November 22!

Update on Michael Shanks

Michael Shanks as Dr. Charlie Harris in SAVING HOPE (CTV/BellMedia)
MICHAEL SHANKS co-stars with Erica Durance in the new Canadian series Saving Hope, which will be broadcast on CTV, but might also make it to American television like Rookie Blue, which was also created by Ilana Frank. MSOL got a photo of Shanks in his new role as Chief of Surgery Dr. Charlie Harris, and we thought we’d just pass it along.

MSOL has also confirmed that Michael’s guest spot on Flashpoint will be aired Tuesday, November 22, on CTV at 8 PM Eastern. The storyline: “Spike responds to a distress call from Sam’s sister and finds himself in a hostile situation. The rest of Team One races to a call at the ultra-secure Metro Evidence Depot and finds a deadly connection between the two cases – one that puts Spike’s life on the line.” Shanks plays David Fleming, a major participant in Spike’s “hostile situation.” US viewers will probably be getting this episode on December 6, 2011, on ION.

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.

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.

Filming Projects for Christopher Judge

A recent article about the filming of the movie To Have and To Hold mentions that the cast includes CHRISTOPHER JUDGE and a few other familiar Stargate vets, including MARK DACASCOS (Tyre, SGA). This is the first time we’ve seen Judge’s name in association with the film, which is set during the 1600s during the early settlements of Virginia. From Village News Online: Filming concludes at Henricus park:

According to the film’s location manager Tom Trigo, “To Have and To Hold,” which is an adaptation of a book published by the same name in 1900 by Virginian author Mary Johnston, is a family-based romance story – with a twist of action and adventure – set in the Virginia Colony as it expands westward. Though much of the film is shot in Henricus, its setting takes place mostly in Jamestown; however, scenes will be shot along the James River, as well as in or near various historical plantations and farms in the region.

Trigo, a native of Virginia, had been scouting Henricus for several years in his search for the perfect location to shoot the film. When he first read the script he knew Henricus was the ideal place to shoot.

Make sure to visit the article for more about the filming at Henricus Historical Park.

Another movie that Judge is cast in is also moving its filming location for its last few weeks of principal photography: The Dark Knight Rises. From Mania Beyond Entertainment: Dark Knight Rises in NY:

Warner Bros. Pictures and director Christopher Nolan have one more city to take on before they wrap up the production for The Dark Knight Rises. Cue the Frank Sinatra or Jay-Z songs because New York is where Nolan and his crew will be end their journey, beginning production in the Big Apple on October 29. The last leg of shooting is expected to last around 14 days and the Los Angeles Times’ 24 Frames reports that the “Occupy Wall Street” may even be used in some scenes though it won’t be a part of the storyline.

The Dark Knight Rises is currently scheduled to open July 20, 2012.

Recently we reported that ROBERT PICARDO had a reunion with his Star Trek: Voyager co-star Kate Mulgrew via his guest starring in her new Adult Swim series NTSF:SD:SUV. Now, we’ve just heard that he’s been reunited with his China Beach co-star Dana Delany in her new show Body of Proof, which is about Delany’s medical examiner Dr. Megan Hunt, her co-workers, her personal life, and her search for the truth when it comes to determining who caused the deaths of the victims she examines. We’ve got a little bit of information about Picardo’s episode from TV Line:

Dana Delany will reunite with her former China Beach costar Robert Picardo in a Season 2 episode of Body of Proof, TVLine has confirmed.
