Picardo: 'I'm definitely an oddball choice'


Actor Robert Picardo reflects on Woolsey and his new full-time cast member status.

A brief excerpt:

When Amanda Tapping decided not to return for Season Five of Stargate Atlantis due to her commitments with new series Sanctuary, it didn't take long before a new successor for the role of expedition leader was chosen.

And while Robert Picardo's Richard Woolsey may not have necessarily been the top-of-mind choice with fans to take over in Tapping's absence, the actor feels that his character's presence full-time will be a good thing for the series.

Goodbye Don

July 1, 2008 in News, Television

I've had Stargate on my mind for much of the past week, ever since the Scifi Channel sent me a press kit for the fifth season of Atlantis. I've been throwing together some ideas of how I want to approach my early review, from touching on the good times and the few rough times from season four, where the series has gone since its inception, where the franchise is with the movies and what not. Exec-prod Joe Mallozzi (who got me that press-kit, thank you sir) reminded us that no show lasts forever.

It turns out the truly good people in this world don't either, and that's unbelievably sad.


With the past in mind and new things coming later this month, the future of the Stargate franchise is very bright, but on Sunday some of that brightness was stolen from us with the passing of Don S. Davis.

Burn Notice - Chicago Tribune: Jeffrey Donovan Interview

From the Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan's The Watcher blog:

July 1, 2008

'Burn Notice's' spy guy: A talk with Jeffrey Donovan

An interview with “Burn Notice” star Jeffrey Donovan, who plays ex-spy Michael Westen on the USA Network series, which returns July 10.

Donovan talks about the quirks of his witey donvan, maureen ryan, michael shanks, stargate sg-1, the watcher, tricia helferty character, Michael’s new handler, Carla (Tricia Helfer), his fellow burned spy Victor (Michael Shanks) and his manipulative mother (Sharon Gless). Donovan also talks about why he thinks “Burn Notice” will be overlooked at awards time and why he thinks his show is every bit as good as “Mad Men.”


MR: So Michael will meet another burned spy, Victor, this season. Matt said he’s pretty different from Michael?

JD: Yes [laughs]. Victor is what Michael would be if Michael had rabies.


MR: What’s the most fun about it [the job]?

JD: The humor. I love bringing the humor and that’s why I got the job. Matt told me, “You’re the only guy who brought humor to a dire situation.” And that’s our goal, every episode -- in the middle of this high-stakes espionage spy-world stuff, this James Bond, Jason Bourne stuff, I can be funny, but you still can believe I’m pulling this job off.

We don’t want to second-guess our audience. We go from a premise of our audience and our fans [being] as smart or smarter than we are -- we don’t have to talk down to them, they can catch up. We believe the audience is out there for a really smart television show that doesn’t dumb down because [people] want some Cro-Magnon to get it. Our audience is smart and we just want to stay one step ahead of them.

Stargate Atlantis -Season Five Premiere: A Summer Space Romp

From Multichannel News' TV Crush column by Mary McNamara:

'Stargate Atlantis' Season Five Premiere: A Summer Space Romp

July 1, 2008

Heading into its fifth season, launching July 11@10p., SCI FI Channel's Stargate Atlantis is enjoying something of a resurgence. The series concluded the previous year on a ratings upswing, and at some point during the upcoming season, the series will hit the landmark 100th episode.

First, a word about the Stargate Atlantis opening credits. I heart the opening credits.

The season five premiere, penned by executive producer Martin Gero, lets viewers bask in a happy place - at least for now. A little warmth? A happy resolution? What a unique concept. (Battlestar's Ron Moore: are you listening?) 0


So what does this mean for Atlantis as its fifth season premiere approaches? Can it go 10 seasons like it‘s big brother? To be perfectly honest - it’s highly unlikely....as a show moves past its fifth season, the odds are stacked against it. Ultimately, it comes down to the numbers - less the ratings and more the bottom line. The longer a show is on the air, the more expensive it is to produce. Throw in the resurgence of the Canadian dollar, once pegged at 63 cents to the U.S. greenback, it now hovers at par, an approximate 37 cent bump which adds a significant hit to the production budget.....

....And yet who knows what the future holds. WE certainly didn‘t nine years ago when we expected production on SG-1 to conclude after it‘s fifth season. But if and when Atlantis does come to an end, I don’t think it should be cause for anger or resentment. Both MGM and SciFi have been great supporters of the show and, if you go by SG-1’s example, fans can be assured that the end of the series will not be the end of Atlantis. Like SG-1, it will live on in longer form dvd releases.

SciFi Pi: Don S Davis (1942-2008) Has Ascended

From the Australian SciFi Channel's SciFi Piblog:

(Please follow the link for the complete blog update.)


Don S Davis (1942-2008) Has Ascended

Tuesday, July 1 by Captain

The man first introduced to Australian audiences as a crafty Salmon fisherman ("I don't know how he can live with himself!") in an iconic John West commercial and then went on to provide the military-man-with-a-heart in such iconic shows as Twin Peaks, The X-Files and Stargate: SG-1 died Sunday the 29th of a heart attack at his home at Gibsons, in British Columbia. He was 65.


A beloved member of the Stargate SG-1 cast and crew since its inception in 1997, he left the show in 2003 due to poor health, returning for guest appearances. However, he did make an appearance in the latest film, Stargate: Continuum. Fans and friends have always responded well to his generous and warm nature.

He was an accomplished artist and woodworker - his work can be seen at Don S Davis Art.


He will be sorely missed by fans and friends alike.

Stargate Atlantis - The Movie Network: Season 5 Updates

From Canada's The Movie Network:

The Movie Network site has updated their site with new SGA season five photos and episode synopses.

Stargate Atlantis season five premieres on The Movie Network on Monday, July 14 at 8pm.

There may be spoilers ahead in the episode synopses:

Episode 01: Search and Rescue

An injured Sheppard is trapped alongside Ronon beneath the rubble of Michael’s collapsed compound. Trapped in another debris pocket, McKay and Lorne realize that a subspace burst has already reached Michael. Light years away, Michael’s flagship Wraith Cruiser hurtles towards the compound. Imprisoned onboard, a pregnant Teyla begs Kanann, the father of her baby, to help save her. Carter leads a rescue mission to the planet. Her team succeeds in digging up McKay and Lorne, but Ronon and a rapidly deteriorating Sheppard are buried far deeper in the rubble. With Michael and his hybrids on their way back to deal with intruders, and the Daedalus already enroute, the question becomes: Who will reach them first?

Episode 02: The Seed

When Dr. Keller fails to report for her morning shift, concerned team members investigate and are shocked by what they discover: Jennifer, unconscious in her quarters - a mysterious web of tendrils attached to her body. Suspecting her condition may be linked to her research into the wraith data recovered from Michael’s lab, the team makes the decision to bring Beckett out of stasis. The beloved doctor leads the medical investigation while Sheppard and co. are quarantined under suspicion that they may have been exposed to the same virus that has affected Keller. As Beckett struggles to find a solution, the alien organism grows, creeping out into the adjoining corridors toward the main power grid. With Atlantis itself now under threat, Woolsey is ultimately faced with a decision that could cost Keller her life.

Episode 03: Broken Ties

Ronon is ambushed during an off-world mission and awakens, much later, a prisoner of his former friend, Tyre. The fellow Satedan, it turns out, has fallen on hard times since they last crossed paths. Abandoned by the wraith he once served, he is undergoing a physiological and psychological withdrawal from the reverse-feeding process once granted to him as a wraith worshiper. But he believes he has come up with a way to win back the respect of his former masters: by delivering them Ronon. Intent on turning their defiant captive, the wraith begin their process of reverse-feeding - stealing Ronon’s life, bringing him to the brink of death, then restoring his youth. Again, and again, and again. A tip, meanwhile, leads the team to an abandoned village. But Ronon and the wraith are long gone, and the only remnant of their former presence is a seriously injured Tyre who may be their only hope of rescuing their friend.

Episode 04: The Daedalus Variations

When a mysterious, duplicate Daedalus appears in orbit over Atlantis, the team is dispatched to investigate. Once aboard the deserted and severely damaged ship, the team discovers an ominous video message from the former captain. But before they can make sense of the situation, the ship is propelled into an alternate reality. As McKay tries to figure out what is going on, the ship continues to jump through various alternate realities, encountering an alien armada and the blistering heat of an expanding sun. Worse - the team realizes that if they don’t find a way back to their reality soon, they risk being lost forever.

Stargate SG-1 - Joseph Mallozzi's Blog Update July 1 '08: In Memory of Don S. Davis

Stargate Atlantis executive producer and showrunner, Joseph Mallozzi, has dedicated his July 1 '08 blog entry to the memory of Don S. Davis (Stargate SG-1's Gen. George Hammond). (Please follow the link for the complete blog update.)

July 1, 2008: In Memory of Don S. Davis


If there’s one thing I’ll always remember about the man, it was his willingness to put others before him. Back when Rick was reducing his workload to spend more time with his young daughter, and the writing department was scrambling to come up with in-story reasons for O’Neill’s off-world absences, Don came up to offices and offered a solution. “Have Hammond step aside and let O’Neill be General,” he suggested. I was floored. Here was a guy, perfectly willing to walk away from a plum role as a regular on a hit series, just to (in his mind) make it easier on everyone else. Of course we thanked him for his kind offer, but we weren’t willing to let George Hammond go just yet.


In my many years at Stargate, I’ve worked with many actors whose company I have greatly enjoyed, but only a few would I actually be bold enough to call my friends. And among those few was the magnanimous southern gent who used to greet me with that familiar “Hellooo, Joooe!”, the always affable Don S. Davis.

He’ll be missed.

'Twilight' Actor Michael Welch Auditioned For Edward Cullen But Found Right Fit With Athletic Geek Mike Newton

'As much as I appreciate my representatives thinking that I could pull off hauntingly beautiful ... it's not quite me,' actor jokes.

By Larry Carroll

SANTA MONICA, California — How much do Twilighters love Michael Welch? So much that when MTV News missed the 20-year-old actor during our set visit, fans began online petitions for us to give him the proper Twilight Tuesday treatment. Spider monkeys, consider your wish granted.


MTV: Believe it or not, there might be somebody out there who still doesn't know what "Twilight" is. So if you could, explain Mike Newton.

Michael Welch: Mike Newton is a cool guy. He's a fun character. He is hopelessly obsessed with the new mysterious, interesting, beautiful girl in high school. He's got some contrasts [because] on the one hand he's this athlete, a basketball player, and on the other hand he's a geek and socially awkward. He's like how "Family Guy" describes Shia LaBeouf: When Peter was like, "Not quite the nerd, not quite the hunk — Shia LaBeouf!" That's how I feel about Mike.

The new season of Stargate Atlantis is set to include a few landmark moments: not the least of which is the show’s 100th episode. The Stargate universe surprised many people when SG-1 became a decade long success story for the Sci Fi Network. We had a chance to speak with the new leader, Richard Woolsey, who is played by Robert Picardo along with executive producer Joseph Mallozzi. We’ll have the full transcript up for your dissection and perusal as soon as we can. In the meantime here are a few highlights.

Don S. Davis - News Articles

A variety of sites are now reporting on the passing of Don S. Davis:

Pop Culture Zoo

Screen Rant


Davis is one of the many versatile, unheralded character actors to have moved through Hollywood in relative anonymity. I wouldn't say he was a phenomenal talent, though he was certainly very good, but it so happens that he played two pivotal roles on two television shows that, more than any other works of art, shaped my taste in movies and stories when I was a young teenager.

Monsters and Critics


SG-1's producer, Joe Mallozzi shared that his favorite memory of Davis' was watching him work the conventions with fans. Many fans approached the General with trepidation (because of his character) but Davis was always incredibly charming with the fans and won them over immediately. Mallozzi also added that Davis was a true friend and, "had a bigger heart than his character that he played... and will be missed not just by the fans but by everyone who worked with him."

All Headline News

TV Squad

Coventry Telegraph

The TV Show Blog

I always loved Davis, and his portrayal of Hammond was both commanding and fatherly. He had a great career, and was an acting force in the ’80s and ’90s on television with roles on the hottest shows of the time. He will be missed.

SciFi Cool

Pop Critics

I am personally saddened by his passing as I am a longtime fan of his character on “Stargate: SG1.” He played the commander of Stargate command for seven seasons and was fantastic in the role, alternating between stern commander and more lenient father figure. After he left the show, or stopped being a regular, it always felt like something was missing.

Fused Film

I am deeply sad to see him go and though I didn’t know him personally I enjoyed his grandfather/father-like persona on the show and will always remember him has the caring and honorable Major General George Hammond.

The word epitomizes Serenity's unsinkable engineer, Kaywinnit Lee Frye, or as she's known to friends, Kaylee.

Now for the first time, Kaylee's shining spirit is captured in this limited-edition, hand-painted, animated maquette, designed by well-known artist Adam Levermore-Rich, creator of the Blue Sun Travel Posters and the best-selling Battlestar Galactica Propaganga Posters.

The stylized statue is a delightful melding of Kaylee's two seemingly contradictory aspects – engineer savant and girly girl. Smiling blissfully, the sculpted 4.75-inch maquette portrays Kaylee in her mechanic’s coveralls (complete with teddy bear patch), holding her trademark rainbow parasol and standing in her work boots on a black resin base.

Only 1,500 limited-edition "Shiny" maquettes will be made, after which this design will be retired forever. Shiny is the first in a series of QMx Little Damn Heroes™ Animated Maquettes, celebrating the spirit of Serenity's crew (and perhaps a couple of their most noteworthy enemies, as well.)
