Stargate Planner: Week of January 17-23

We’ll update this article if something comes to our attention during the week. Also, if you’ve got more to add, please don’t hesitate to announce them in the comment section below.

Calendar

Monday,   January 17 Today is David Blue‘s birthday.
Tuesday,   January 18
Wednesday, January 19 Today is Rachel Luttrell‘s birthday.
Thursday,   January 20 Tonight at 10/9c is the premiere of the new USA network series Fairly Legal in which Richard Dean Anderson will be making five appearances over the first season as David Smith. Fairly Legal is the new title of the series; it was formerly called Facing Kate. The pilot is 90 minutes and the remaining nine episodes will be one hour each. The premise: “Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi) is a firm believer that justice can always be found-even if it’s not always in the courtroom. Once a lawyer at her family’s esteemed San Francisco firm, Kate’s frustration with the legal system led her to a new career as a mediator. Thanks to her innate understanding of human nature, thorough legal knowledge, and wry sense of humor, Kate is a natural when it comes to dispute resolution. Except, it seems, when it comes to conflicts in her own life” (Show’s official homepage).

Beau Bridges will be among the hosts at the premiere of the documentary Elephants and Man: A Litany of Tragedy at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood.

From PR-USA: The film, executive produced by Melya Kaplan and directed by Jacek Kropinski, chronicles the history of elephants in captivity. Kaplan, founder of the nonprofit Voice for the Animals Foundation, contends that zoos and circuses are not capable of properly caring for elephants due to their size and their need for vast amounts of space in which to roam. Many celebrities have joined Kaplan in a campaign to persuade zoos to close elephant exhibits and transfer the pachyderms to larger sanctuaries.

The host committee for the premiere of “Elephants and Man” includes Cher, Alec Baldwin, Kathy Griffin, Billy Bob Thornton, Jane Fonda, Robin Williams, Ed Begley, Jr., Paul Haggis, Fisher Stevens, Ric O’Barry, Karen Black, Lainie Kazan, Ken Davitian, Sally Field, Beau Bridges and others. Special guests will include actresses Lily Tomlin and Tippi Hedren, who have been outspoken on the issue of elephants in captivity. They will participate in a panel discussion, which will follow the screening.

Friday,   January 21
Saturday, January 22 Today is Jennifer Spence‘s birthday.

Robert Picardo will be at the opening review of “Star Trek: The Exhibition” at the Louisville Science Museum, which formally opens January 23 and runs until May 22. This evening review is part of the Museum’s largest fundraiser event, which will include a screening of Quantum Quest, an “animated IMAX movie featuring the voice talents of several Star Trek alums, including William Shatner,” according to Louisville’s Courier Journal.

Sunday, January 23 Today is Richard Dean Anderson‘s birthday.

  • The Cast of STARGATE UNIVERSE
    Cancellation – After Syfy’s announcement via Twitter that Stargate Universe will not be renewed for Season Three, the Internet is abuzz with the news. Because of the sheer volume of these announcements, you’ll be able to find the majority through an online search, but in case you missed it, here it is from Solutions. Make sure to visit this article to leave your thoughts about this sad event which has many fans concerned about the future of the Stargate franchise. We’ll be hearing more about this from the production office—namely Joseph Mallozzi via his weblog—once everyone returns from their vacations abroad. This much-anticipated reaction may reveal the future of the franchise, as Mallozzi has made statements in the past that SGU would possibly get a movie (or two) if the five-year plan were cut short.

News Flashes and Brief Follow-Ups

Jason-Momoa-GOT-Teaser3
Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo in GAME OF THRONES (HBO)
  • Jason Momoa – His Conan movie was renamed to Conan the Barbarian, but still has the same release date in the United States: August 19, 2011. For his other project, HBO’s Game of Thrones, there are some rumors going around that HBO might already be renewing the new series for a second season, even before the first has been aired. Speculation as to why this might be the case can be found at the fansite Winter Is Coming. This fansite is very active in posting the latest news on the new HBO series and this editor highly recommends it. There’s also a recent article that includes an image of Momoa as Khal Drogo entitled “MGoT update: Join the Dothraki horde.”
  • Michael Shanks, Lexa Doig, Steve Bacic – Filming has wrapped for Hangar 14. Shanks plays a bad guy, a Russian gangster named Demetrius, and Doig plays a SWAT team member along with Steve Bacic, Michael Jai White, and the movie’s star, former wrestler Steve Austin. Doig published a few pictures on her Twitter while on the set of the movie: “Me as SWAT chick” and “The Boys :).” Currently, IMDb lists Doig in her role, but not her husband Shanks! The storyline: “A training exercise for the LAPD SWAT Team goes terribly wrong when they find themselves pitted against two rival gangs while trapped in an abandoned Hangar, armed with nothing but blanks.”
  • Stargate Universe – Our Stargate Wiki now has all of the transcripts for the first half of Season Two. SGU will be returning to Syfy in the Spring, possibly early April 2011.

David-Nykl-Fringe
Last Week’s TV Appearances: David Nykl in Fringe; Michael Shanks in The Good Guys; Robert Picardo in Supernatural.

  • Robert Picardo – Apologies to Picardo fans! We hadn’t heard that he’d be a guest star on Supernatural on November 19 in the episode “Clap Your Hands If You Believe …”! Good news, though: The CW will be posting the episode online soon so you can still catch his appearance!
  • David Hewlett – He wasn’t in last week’s episode of Hellcats as we were expecting. The show will be on a brief break and will return December 1, so we’ll be on the look-out for him as Dr. Eagan then.
