Stargate Atlantis - TWO Video Clips from set of "Outsiders"

From Joseph Mallozzi's blog update for June 6, 2008:

June 6, 2008: Mime trapped in invisible box for 11 days. Bystanders assumed it was part of act.

Alas, it looks like I won’t be Comic Con-bound this July. Given the choice, I deferred moderation duties to Marty G. who, at the end of the day, will do a much better job than I would have (and, frankly, is in greater need of a tan). So, sorry to say no behind-the-scene snaps of the convention, party, and panels this year, but I’ll make up for it by posting video of my dog Lulu stripping the bark off my wife’s prized cedar topiary.


No mailbag today. I’m taking the night off. Instead, enjoy not one but two clips from my visit to the Outsiders set. Click on the links:¤t=Outsidersvillage.flv¤t=Outsidersvillagescene.flv

Stargate Atlantis' 'Outsiders' is scheduled to air Friday October 17 at its new time at 9pm on the SciFi Channel (US).

3-2-1 Haitus

Actor David Nykl (Dr. Radek Zelenka)


Well I wrapped out of the mid-season two parter today - my final scenes before summer hiatus. There's still a week of production before the break, but I got let out early for good behaviour. It's been a fun episode to shoot - and a great script -finally getting some screen time with the very fine Rachel Luttrell.

Next up: a guest spot on Sanctuary, (Thanks, Martin Wood!) That's going to be fun - I've never been to the Hindu Kush Mountains before. Then there's the second of the audio dramas I'm doing with Big Finish. I did one last week and the script was really really good. And they're a lot of fun to do. I think you'll like them a lot.

Two Presidents, A Secret Cylon & Starbuck: 'Battlestar Galactica's' Jamie Bamber Speaks

By Korbi Ghosh

June 05, 04:01 PM

Maybe it's commonplace in the U.K. -- I don't know -- but in my experience, guys as attractive as Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber aren't usually all smart and introspective too. However, instead of the boring personality that so many men of his beauty are saddled with, God gifted Bamber with both hands. A speaker of three languages, the two of us chose to chat in English today (a random decision and not at all because I have no understanding of French or Italian) about all things Lee Adama. If you're a lover of the series, this is a conversation (long, but I swear, worth it) you want to get in on...


Very interesting, because we actually have seen a different side of Lee as of late. He's resorted to a couple dirty trickster ways, talking to Tom Zarek behind President Roslin's back. Do you feel like he's lost some of his idealistic, moral center?

No, I absolutely don’t. I think Lee has always been someone who wants to contribute. He believes in sacrifices, he believes in service, he believes in helping those around him. I think what he sees in the beginning of season four is a vertical framework that is antiquated and does not fit this sort of fledgling society. The Presidency was a huge office back on Caprica and then it was like the United States presidency suddenly boiled down to the one state of New Hampshire. Is there room for two Houses and a judiciary and all this stuff when you have just one state? The answer is probably no. And I think what Lee sees with Roslin is that she’s someone he admires very much, but she’s been on a torturous journey as the president, personally and politically. She’s lost touch with the civilian voice, she’s become very cozy with Admiral Adama and they've become kind of a de facto autocracy. And I think Lee understands that it’s necessary and probably the right way to govern, but what he feels is that they could do a better job of at least having the illusion of being accountable to the rest of the fleet. So I think he starts off trying to help the President, trying to bring a new, fresh, young sort of face to this leadership, and one that could maybe involve the people, giving them some sort of voice. And then he realizes she’s very much set [in her ways] and she views him as a threat post-trial, and he decides that this isn’t the right way to do things. I think he’s still being the same Lee. He’s got a vision and he’s an idealist, but he’s not afraid [to make moves]. As I'm sure, if you were with Barack Obama in the back rooms and if you were really talking to him as part of his team, he would bare his teeth. He’s got to be ambitious. He’s got to be single-minded and he’s got to tread on some fingers sometimes. Lee’s no different.
