Stargate Actor Updates

Hey, we’re still here! Here’s a round-up of the various bits of news that have come out recently about our beloved Stargate actors.

In disappointing news, the US network NBC dropped the final two episodes of Saving Hope from its summer schedule. But US fans of Michael Shanks and Erica Durance can watch the episodes on-line at NBC.com’s Saving Hope videos page. Episode 12, “Ride Hard or Go Home” is up now, and we expect the season finale, “The Sleeper Awakes” to be up later this week. The show has been renewed by CTV in Canada for Season 2, to air next summer. We hope the show will be released in the US in some form, if not on a network! It’s a pity that 3 million viewers were not enough to keep it on the air in the states.

Meanwhile Michael Shanks has stayed very busy since Saving Hope Season 1 finished filming. As he has been tweeting (@MichaelShanks), he’s currently in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada filming a bio-pic. He’s playing the lead role of Gordie Howe in the film, called Mr. Hockey. Gordie Howe is a hockey legend, and Michael is clearly thrilled to be playing the iconic role, while using his real hockey skills as well. No word on a US release yet, but we will keep an eye out.

Jewel Staite continues to co-star in The L.A. Complex, which airs on The CW in the US. Martin Gero, a writer and producer on Stargate, is the creator and executive producer of the show, which is set in L.A. and is filmed in both L.A. and Toronto, Canada. There is no word yet on a Season 3. US ratings were low on Tuesdays, but improved when it recently got moved to Mondays. Follow Jewel on twitter here: @JewelStaite

Jason Momoa has been cast as a villain in the upcoming film Wolves, as reported here. He’ll play the evil werewolf patriarch of a town. This project was recently announced, so no word on release date yet. Jason appears in Bullet to the Head with Sylvester Stallone. It’s scheduled for release on 1 February 2013.

Paul McGillion is a new daddy of baby Hugh, born in early August! And he just filmed an episode of Fox’s Fringe. Follow Paul on twitter: @PaulyMcGillion.

Joe Flanigan has a couple of things coming up for release. First is Six Bullets, which he filmed with Jean Claude Van Damme in eastern Europe a while back. The film will be released on DVD in the US this Wednesday September 11 (order from Amazon here). A review of the movie is here, and has this nice thing to say about Joe:

One of the biggest surprises in the movie was Joe Flanigan who was great as the desperate father willing to do anything to get his daughter back. He definitely has the potential to become the next big action star.

Joe’s other role filmed a while back was an episode of Metal Hurlant Chronicles, which appears to be nearing release in France, then possibly in Germany and the UK. There’s no word on a US release yet. You can view a trailer here at Collider.

Many Stargate actors attended DragonCon 2012 in Atlanta last month, including Richard Dean Anderson, Joe Flanigan, Torri Higginson, Cliff Simon, Robert Picardo, Tony Amendola, Peter Kelamis, and probably others we don’t know about! We didn’t hear word of any new projects from the actors, but that could simply be because we’re not watching the right internet spots. Likewise Joe Flanigan, Michael Shanks, Paul McGillion, and others attended the Creation Stargate convention earlier in August, but not much word of new work has gotten out. If you heard of any big news, please let us know!

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.

Mallozzi & Mullie: Still Partners in Sci-Fi

DARK MATTER #1
DARK MATTER #1
JOSEPH MALLOZZI and PAUL MULLIE joined the Stargate production crew during Season Four of SG-1 and were there when the television franchise ended. They’ve written a new comic book series, Dark Matter, which will hit shelves January 11.

Two articles centered around the writing partners can be found at Nerd Trek: Interview with Joseph Mallozzi (Stargate) covers the writing and production partners’ time with Stargate, while Teaser! – “Dark Matter” Comic Series by Joseph Mallozzi & Paul Mullie (Stargate)” is an exclusive sneak peek at the Dark Matter comic book series.

Lou Diamond Phillips in Celebrity Cook-Off

LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS can be seen tonight (January 1) in the premiere of the Food Network’s Celebrity Cook-Off at 9 PM ET. 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.

Stargate Briefing: Bridges, Carlyle, Momoa

Beau Bridges Interview

BEAU BRIDGES co-stars with George Clooney in one of this year’s Oscar-hopeful films The Descendants. In response to the movie’s popularity, as well as the actor’s own, I Am Rogue got a chance to talk with Bridges about The Descendants, “working with director Alexander Payne, his love for Hawaii, George Clooney, how filmmaking has changed over the years, and the book his father gave him about acting that he has now passed on to his own daughter.” The introduction includes a brief mention of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.

Carlyle Film Debuting at Sundance

ROBERT CARLYLE’s independent film California Solo will debut at the Sundance Film Festival this coming January (January 19-29, 2012) in Park City, Utah. The film tells the story of a “Britpop ex-rocker now living on a farm outside Los Angeles [who] must deal with personal demons.” It was directed by Marshall Lewy and also stars Alexia Rasmussen, Kathleen Wilhoite, A Martinez and Danny Masterson. Variety reports that the film does not yet have distribution rights in place.

If you’re interested in some of Carlyle’s previous work, Barbara Barnett of Blog Critics has compiled a list of must-watch projects, including Stargate Universe. She warns, “This little guide to the films of Robert Carlyle is hardly comprehensive. I struggled with which of his film and television roles to include, but decided to focus on those that have gotten to me on an emotional level, which is why I’ve suggested these as ‘favorites’ rather than ‘the best of…'”

First-Look Photo of Jason Momoa in Bullet to the Head

BULLET TO THE HEAD
Sylvester Stallone and Jason Momoa in fight scene in BULLET TO THE HEAD (IM Global)
Coming Soon has published the first image of its star Sylvester Stallone in a fight sequence for his new film Bullet to the Head. As it turns out, this fight sequence is with our very own Jason Momoa!

The movie’s storyline: “Stallone plays a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York City detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of Washington, D.C. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.” From the picture, you can guess that Momoa’s character is among those who “stand in their way.”

The movie premieres April 13, 2012.

Update on Beau Bridges

Beau Bridges and George Clooney in THE DESCENDANTS
Beau Bridges and George Clooney in THE DESCENDANTS
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 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.

Update on Joe Flanigan’s International Sci-Fi Series

Metal Hurlant Chronicles is an upcoming international sci-fi series project that JOE FLANIGAN is a part of. Variety.com has some more information about its distribution schedule:

Earlier this year, Universal Pictures Germany picked up home video and VOD rights for the first two seasons (comprising 12 half-hours). Sony Pictures Television nabbed the series for distribution in various European territories, notably Germany, Austria, German-speaking Switzerland and Luxembourg via its pay TV network.

The first season will be delivered in April and the second will bow in November 2012. Each episode will adapt stories from the original graphic novels.

Created by comic artists Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) and Philippe Druillet in 1974, “Metal Hurlant” became a sci-fi phenom in the 1980s.

The level of Flanigan’s first-season involvement still isn’t known, but we’ll keep an eye out for more information. Hopefully, the busy actor will update his Twitter account soon!

In the meantime, we can enjoy this interview conducted earlier this month at the Entertainment Media Show in London. He talks about his recent projects and filming abroad.

Jason Momoa at New York Comic Con

There are loads of reports about JASON MOMOA’s appearance at the New York Comic Con held a little while back. Just recently, the notification for Huffington Post’s brief interview with the Conan the Barbarian star hit our inbox. Here’s a Stargate-mentioning snippet:

Q: With your characters on Stargate Atlantis like Ronan Dex and Game of Thrones, do you gravitate towards these warrior types or is that just something because you’re 6’4″ and huge?

JM: When I did Stargate Atlantis, I wanted to work and it was a great opportunity, four years of working on that.

I think when Drogo came along, that’s a once in a lifetime chance to play anything like that. I’ve never seen a character like him in the movies or on TV. He’s such a powerful, raw character. That role was the first time I’ve ever wanted a character in my life.

Because of that, the same casting director came on Conan so everything just kind of lined up that way.

I don’t know, we’ll see. Hopefully there’s a rom-com in there somewhere coming up.

Momoa’s most recent project is his movie with Sylvester Stallone, Bullet to the Head (aka Headshot).

Michael Shanks in Lifetime’s The Pastor’s Wife

Our COMING SOON feature has been updated with the premiere date of MICHAEL SHANKS’s television movie project for Lifetime, The Pastor’s Wife. We got the date of November 5, 2011, from this recent announcement about co-star Rose McGowan’s titular role at Monsters and Critics:

Lifetime is set to premiere the original movie The Pastor’s Wife, starring Rose McGowan and Michael Shanks in a film about the shotgun slaying of a small town minister and revelations of his dark secrets involving sex, lies and betrayal — shocking his God-fearing community and changing it forever.

The Pastor’s Wife will debut on Saturday, November 5, at 8 pm ET/PT.

Based on a true story that made national headlines, The Pastor’s Wife centers on the 2006 death of Matthew Winkler (Shanks), a beloved minister and community leader who was mysteriously shot and killed in his Selmer, Tennessee, home. During their investigation, the authorities soon zero in on Matthew’s wife, Mary (McGowan), as the crime’s prime suspect.

Make sure to visit the link for more on the project.

Amanda Tapping Sanctuary Interview

Season Four of Sanctuary is currently airing on Friday nights on Syfy and Space, and AMANDA TAPPING provides lots of interesting behind-the-scenes details concerning its story development and production in an in-depth interview published at The Morton Report. This season is comprised of 13 episodes, a reduction from last season’s 20, and Tapping commented on the benefits of a shortened season:

“There’s a whole trigger effect of what Helen has been doing, and, again, I think this season is highly ambitious and it sort of blows the lid off anything we’ve done before. It’s a beautifully shot and written season, and I actually don’t mind that we were taken back down to 13 episodes this year. I know that that’s kind of Syfy’s mandate right now- they’re not commissioning 20-episode series. They’re commissioning 13 and sometimes less, so when we found out that we got a 13-episode pick-up, some people said, ‘Oh, man, you guys got ripped off,’ and we were like, ‘No, it’s all good, because now we can make 13 really kick-ass episodes of television.’ We’re not spread too thin and we knew we could do that. Twenty episodes was a big order and we were thrilled to have it, but we have a really good solid season with these 13. Believe me when I tell you that there are no duds episode-wise.”

Tapping also talks about directing, sets, motion capture, and Stargate vets DAMIAN KINDLER and MARTIN WOOD, so make sure to visit the link for more.

Update on Shanks’s New Film Project

MICHAEL SHANKS is filming a new zombie movie he referred to as Eerie 13 (aka 13 Eerie). We’ve got more information about the plot from this article in MJ Times, the news site for the movie’s filming location, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada.

“The film is a zombie movie,” Richelle Bourgoin, publicist for Minds Eye Entertainment, told the Times-Herald.
“It centres on some forensic undergraduate students who are undertaking a scientific expedition on a remote island that was formerly used as a biological testing ground for life-term criminals left for dead, but they are not dead. They are undead as they find out,” she said.

Bourgoin said filming is taking place in and around Moose Jaw and is due to finish at the end of October.

The film stars Katharine Isabelle, a Canadian actress, who played the lead role in Ginger Snaps, as student Megan; Michael Shanks from Stargate as the professor; Brendan Fletcher from The Pacific as student Josh; Nick Moran from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as Larry the driver; and Brendan Fehr from CSI Miami as student Daniel.

In a similar announcement, Dread Central published the name of Shanks’s character as Professor Tomkins. We’ve added Eerie 13 to our COMING SOON feature and will update it when more info becomes available.

New Tapping Webseries Looking for Theme Composer

AMANDA TAPPING has teamed up with sci-fi legend William Shatner to provide their voices to a new animated webseries entitled The Zenoids.
