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.

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.

When the authorities and his former gang (led by Bradley Cooper) learn he is back behind the wheel, they hit the road to chase him down. Desperate to stay one step ahead, Charlie upgrades to an even faster car as the story shifts into high gear; cranking up the horse power and increasing the speed to make it to Southern California in time and, more importantly, in one piece.

Stargate for Halloween?

Visit Hatboro-Horsham Patch for a photo gallery of the home of Glenn Fitzgerald of Hatboro, Pennsylvania, who has placed a Stargate among his decorations for Halloween!

Fitzgerald, on the other hand, says his large display began about a dozen years ago with one light-up Frankenstein piece that sat in his front yard.

When his brother-in-law, Brad Richardson, an Emmy-award winning Hollywood set designer, moved into his house 11 years ago, Fitzgerald’s display really took on a whole new life.

Featuring hundreds of movie quality props including a 20-foot-tall spider, a Stargate (from the film “Stargate”) and a huge crocodile, many of the one-of-a-kind objects are made by Fitzgerald and Richardson.

“There is tremendous detail in the props,” Fitzgerald said. “People are always discovering new details.”
