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: Hewlett, Judge, Luttrell, Picardo, Tapping

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”).

Make sure to visit the article for further information about this Blu-ray release.

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. There will also be a UK release to a limited number of theaters on December 21. Flicks and Bits has reprinted a press release from Warner Bros. Pictures that lists all of the theaters that will be screening the prologue for the final installment in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, which will be released on July 20, 2012.

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

AMANDA TAPPING co-stars with Robin Dunne, Billy Boyd, and Kristin Kreuk in this sci-fi comedy about four spaceworkers who are “on a run down orbital sanitation station [and] run into a few problems when they salvage a strange device from space ship wreckage.” The movie has both an official website and Facebook page, but as of right now, no confirmed release date. Here is their first promo trailer that gives you a hint as to the humorous tone of the movie:

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.

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.

Another Reunion for Robert Picardo

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. The actress tweeted a picture of herself and Picardo, who will play an Italian-American restaurant owner, on the set with the message, “Me and Bob Picardo, together again! So happy.”

To see the image, visit Delany’s Twitpic link. Body of Proof airs Tuesdays on ABC at 10/9c, but right now, we’re not sure when Picardo’s episode will be airing. We’ll keep our eyes open for a date.

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.

Robert Picardo Reunites with Voyager Co-Star Mulgrew

Robert Picardo as Damian in NTSF:SD:SUV

Star Trek: Voyager star Kate Mulgrew has a new 15-minute series called NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle). It’s part of Adult Swim that shares channel space with Cartoon Network nightly between 9:00 pm to 6:00 am ET/PT. Here’s a snippet of the interview Mulgrew did about her new series in which her Voyager co-star and Stargate alum ROBERT PICARDO guest starred recently:

In “Twistin’ the Night Away,” the actress had the pleasure of being reunited with one of her former Star Trek: Voyager costars, Robert Picardo, who played U.S.S. Voyager’s Holographic Doctor. “That was my call. I was sitting next to Paul Scheer and [series executive producer/writer John Stern] and overheard them saying that they needed a guest-star who could play a really creepy character,” recalls Mulgrew. “I told them, ‘I know him. He’s one of my best friends – Bob Picardo. They both said, ‘Yes! Can you call him?’

“I called Bob right then and there. He came in the next day and was perfect. The thing is, Paul will do that all the time, which is one of the reasons why I love him. Any idea is a good idea and he’ll embrace it. At one point I suggested to Paul, ‘You should get all the Star Trek guys in here. It would be a riot,’ and he said, ‘You’re absolutely right.’ It’s a very collaborative set. It has a wonderful old spirit, you know, because we’re not talking about trillions of dollars here. We’re talking about a collaborative effort to make people really laugh.”

Read more of the interview at The Morton Report.

Michael Shanks Has a New Film Project

MICHAEL SHANKS sent a note to his official website, MSOL, to let them know about his new project: “Just a note to let you know that I am starting a new project next week. A “ZOMBIE” movie called EERIE 13. Everyone should do at least one zombie movie. This shall be mine. More info to follow.”
