12 JAN 04:

Adam Baldwin, best known to SF fans as the mercenary Jayne on Joss Whedon's Firefly, told SCI FI Wire that he is pursuing a role on the upcoming Stargate Atlantis, a spin-off of the SCI FI Channel's Stargate SG-1. "I'm hoping that can work out," he said during an interview at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention. "We're working on it. Nothing set in stone just yet. I'm actually trying to convince them to hire me."

Baldwin said that he is up for a supporting character not unlike his role on Firefly. "He's a military guy," he said. "I would be one of the supporting ensemble guys. Not the lead guy. I'm a little past my prime. They want someone in there in their early 20s. You've got to launch a show with a 20-something guy. That's just the nature of the beast these days. So I hopefully could jump in and add my experience to any new show."

In the meantime, Baldwin can be seen in the recently released box set Firefly: The Complete Series, which came out Dec. 9.

Stargate Atlantis is a weekly series set to premiere in the summer of 2004, alongside the upcoming eighth season of SG-1. Production on 20 hourlong episodes of Atlantis is set to start in early 2004. Meanwhile, the remaining episodes of the current seventh season of SG-1 will return to SCI FI on Jan. 9, 2004, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
