Richard Dean Anderson - Cameo Appearance on Saturday Night Live

Reports are coming in from East Coast viewers that Richard Dean Anderson ("MacGyver," and "Stargate SG-1") makes a cameo appearance on the January 31 episode of "Saturday Night Live," on NBC in a MacGruber skit. Not as a MacGruber, but as one of the people trapped in a situation with MacGruber.

Hopefully, a video clip from HULU or YouTube will be available soon.

Chuck - New York Times: Adam Baldwin Interview

At the New York Times (New York, NY):

(Please follow the link for the complete interview.)


No Grumpy Guy, He’s 46 and in Repose

Published: January 30, 2009

NOW that Adam Baldwin has figured out how to make it look easy — this surly, deadpan, tough-guy thing he does every Monday night on NBC as the monosyllabic secret-agent sidekick on the action-comedy series “Chuck” — he doesn’t mind admitting how hard it used to be.

He was 18 when he got his first taste of movie-star limelight as the title character in the 1980 film, “My Bodyguard,” then roles in summer comedies like “D.C. Cab” in 1983 and smaller parts in prestige films like “Ordinary People” despite not having a clue about what he was doing.
“I was horrible,” he said of some of his early performances, particularly the one in “D.C. Cab” (in which his co-stars included Bill Maher, Gary Busey and Mr. T). “I didn’t know how to work. I didn’t know how to process a character, and, certainly, I wasn’t as funny as I should have been.

“But I did learn a lot of technical stuff, how to be on a set, where to stand, how to do a fight scene, things like that,” he said during a recent interview in a high-end Santa Monica coffee shop, one of those mad-scientist places where they grind the coffee in front of you and serve it in vacuum-sealed flasks on a silver tray. “But then I had to learn how to act. And that just takes some people longer than others. I’m no Leonardo DiCaprio.”

He can say this now that he’s 46, aware of his limitations, proud of the niche he has found. In “Chuck” he plays no-nonsense secret agent John Casey, protecting loose-limbed amateur Chuck Bartkowski (played by Zachary Levi), a computer nerd who has accidentally had the contents of a super-secret government computer downloaded into his brain. But even before “Chuck,” Mr. Baldwin had received sterling reviews and a growing cult following for playing similarly grumpy characters on “The X-Files” and “Firefly.”

... Now because of his “Chuck” fame, people no longer assume that he’s one of those other Baldwins (he’s not) or that he’s as grumpy as his characters. He envisions a future filled with playing strong, silent types, guys with enough experience to know how the world works, when to take it seriously and when to go with the joke.
“I always did think that when I turned 40, I’d start coming into my own,” he said. “Part of that is just growing and living, suffering and failing and going through the trials of life, having a wife and kids. It humbles you, and going through that humbling process lets you release that self-centeredness, and it’s a very liberating feeling. It lets you stop worrying. I’m enjoying that.”

Stargate SG1 / Atlantis - GateWorld: Author Sally Malcolm Audio Interview

At GateWorld:


GateWorld talks with Sally Malcolm

Since June of 2004, U.K.-based Fandemonium has regularly published full length, original Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis novels, including Elizabeth Christensen's 2008 Scribe Award winner, "Stargate Atlantis: Casualties of War."

Sally Malcolm is the joint-owner of Fandemonium, along with her husband, Tom, and she is the publisher's Chief Editor. She recently joined GateWorld for a discussion of Fandemonium's history, their process in working with MGM, and their future goals as a company. Sally also talks about writing her own Stargate novels and watching Michael Shanks perform "Gift of the Gods," the script Sally wrote for audio book publisher Big Finish.

You can learn more about the many novels Fandemonium has published in GateWorld's Books section, and visit their Web site at!

GateWorld's interview with Sally Malcolm runs about 25 minutes. Listen online at your leisure, download it to your MP3 player, or subscribe now to the iTunes podcast! The full interview is also transcribed [at the link above].

A brief excerpt:

GW: You mentioned that you work closely with MGM. Can you talk to us about what the normal process is like in submitting a book to MGM, and then how you work with them as the book is being written and is ready to be published?
SM: Sure. The first thing we get [from the author] is a one-page outline that comes to me, and if I like it and think we haven't got a book too similar, I'll ask for a 4,000-word outline of the story, which goes to MGM. They look at that and make sure it ties in with the feel of the show, and hopefully there's not too much of an overlap with upcoming episodes. Although, we have recently had a problem with a book that is going to be published soon by James Swallow -- and it's an excellent book, and we are publishing it and it's a wonderful book -- I'm not going to say what, but there's an element to it which has recently appeared in an episode.

Today's News: Our Take

Supernatural: More Reader Questions Answered!

Jan 29, 2009 - by TV Guide News

What's the difference between angels and demons? Will Sam ever reunite with his mother? Does Dean have more to tell about Hell? Why is Ruby so "different"? And what's coming up that is more than intense? Supernatural supervising producer Sera Gamble made time this week to answer a second batch of reader questions. So sit back and gain even more insight into the CW's spooktacular series (airing Thursdays at 9 pm/ET).

A brief excerpt:

I read the spoilers for Episode 18. Is there any chance you will play the character named Sera? — ckll
Gamble: Nope. There is a character named Sera Siege though. There are characters named after everyone on the staff. The episode starts out dizzyingly meta: Sam and Dean discover a book series called Supernatural, about the adventures of two demon-hunting brothers named Sam and Dean. Every detail is spot-on. Obviously, this is deeply alarming to them. Julie Siege wrote the episode, and she was very even-handed, in that she managed to take hilarious jabs at the writers, the fans and the boys. The story eventually twists in an unexpected direction that's more grounded and substantial — it's not just an amusing exercise. But if there was any doubt that we have a sense of humor about ourselves, this ought to clear it up.

EXCLUSIVE: Beau Bridges Steps Into the Dark with Max Payne

The veteran actor talks about working with Mark Wahlberg, possible Stargate endeavors and other new projects

Source: Brian Gallagher

January 29th, 2009

While Beau Bridges might have been born into Hollywood (both literally and figuratively), that doesn't meant he didn't have to work to where he is today. Born to legendary actor Lloyd Bridges, and older brother to Jeff Bridges, Beau has proven to be a constant workhorse, with over 160 film and television credits to his name, two Golden Globes, three Emmy's and a slew of other nominations and accolades to his credit, including a star on the Walk of Fame, right next to his father and brother. Bridges comes back to the silver screen for his role as BB Hensley in Max Payne, which just hit the shelves last week on January 20 and the disc topped all three home video charts in its first week in release. I spoke with Bridges over the phone...

... So is there any chance for any sort of a Stargate resurrection with you?
Beau Bridges: Well, I haven't talked directly with those guys for awhile, but I know they have a new show coming out called Stargate Universe. They've got a complete new cast, but there has been talk, just rumors, that maybe they'll have some of the Stargate SG-1 cast back, but I don't know. I enjoyed doing that. I did that for two, three years, maybe almost four years with the movies that I did. It was a good experience and I wouldn't mind at all going back and doing some more.

GateWorld talks with Connor Trinneer

For the time being it appears that the hybrid Michael is out of the picture. But Connor Trinneer is still very much in the game, playing daddy to his three year old son and going out for gigs in LA.

GateWorld sat down with Connor just before Christmas to talk about the latest -- and perhaps last -- developments for his character in Season Five's "The Prodigal," to discuss what worked and what didn't, and the subtext behind Michael's motivations.

GateWorld's interview with Connor runs 27 minutes, and is available in video, audio, and transcript form! The video version below requires QuickTime, but it is is also available in Flash format at GateWorld Play.

For the audio version you can listen online at your leisure, or download it to your MP3 player.

A brief excerpt:

GW: Either that or he's just shifting priorities. He's not exactly sure what he wants. Which I think is the case with this character. Once we meddled with him I don't think he knew what he wanted after that.
CT: He was. He was a man without a home. I think that that did play into everything that happened. He was grasping with straws, all of them. There was a time when he was working with [Atlantis]. It was for his own benefit. He was somebody who just didn't have a lot of grounding. It was a hell of a lot of fun to play.

Catching Up With Amanda Tapping

By Joseph Dilworth Jr. - January 26, 2009

Now that Sanctuary has been renewed for a second season, we thought it was time to have another chat with Amanda Tapping. This time around we discuss season one, where production is on season two and what it was like shooting the final episode of Stargate Atlantis.

... PCZ: When do you start shooting?
AT: We’re still waiting on word, ideally the beginning of March so that we can deliver for early October. SCI FI wants us to air October 9th. We will run concurrently with Stargate Universe. I think they premiere with a two-hour episode and then the following week we will run together. Anyway, that’s the plan. We’ll hopefully start shooting at the beginning of march at the latest.

... PCZ: My favorite part of the final episode was the little tribute to Don Davis and General Hammond. I think it speaks highly of the cast and crew that even in an episode where so much needs to get done, room is made to have a scene like that.
AT: Something had to be said that’s such a show of respect for an incredible man who…here come the tears…but something had to be said. I remember we were at Don Davis’ memorial and I was standing in his kitchen with his wife, Ruby, and Joe Mallozzi said “We’re naming the ship the General Hammond.” And we all just lost it. “Of course you are, thank you.” It’s a subtle, simple tribute, which is exactly - Don was a simple, beautiful man so that’s how they did it, it was lovely. You can’t overplay it, you’ve just got to say it. As an actor you wonder how you could possibly do justice to it. It one line and it’s so huge. So, it was just keeping it simple and lovely ...

NCIS Exclusive: Lance Henriksen Cops Sheriff Role

If you need an intense local sheriff to help Gibbs & Co. work a case, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better fit for the meaty role than Lance Henriksen. Awesomely, that's precisely who NCIS has nabbed to guest-star on the hit series later this season, has learned exclusively ...


I realize that NCIS is not a scifi show -- however, it is a very enjoyable series. In fact, in some ways, it is somewhat similar to classic Stargate SG-1 (seasons one through eight).

Stargate Magazine: Let’s talk about The Shrine. What an amazing episode!
David Hewlett: It’s really good. It was obviously a very McKay-centric script, as I think they all should be! Having said that, Brad Wright is great at writing for everybody, all his scripts have really nice moments – I think the Ronon moment was really nice. There were some really good opportunities for the rest of the cast to get in on that whole losing McKay thing, which you would think would be a happy thing! Other than the video footage stuff, I didn’t have much to say. Poor Keller ended up doing all the exposition.

Philip Glenister: On the Hunt for Demons

Playing Rupert Galvin, an American vampire smiter, on ITV's new series Demons is a complete change of pace for Philip Glenister, who took the role after playing Gene Hunt on Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes for three years. Despite turning down the opportunity to reprise the role of Hunt for the American version of the show, he's still found himself portraying a transatlantic character. He spoke to Total Sci-Fi about his new role…

A brief excerpt:

Do you think that Demons is suitable for the Scooby Doo audience?
We are making a family supernatural thriller and it is dark in places but there is also humour. Kids love to be scared but at the same they want to have some fun.

My daughters are six and three and they are obsessed with Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures. They love being scared – when they know it is comic book scary. I’ll never forget watching Doctor Who with my friend Paul when I was a lad. We’d half hide behind the door when the Daleks were on.

There used to be a series on Saturday nights years ago on ITV called Thriller. It was all different stories. They released them on DVD recently and I had to get it. I remember the music used to really freak me out. There were these great stories and there was one that I remember where this guy gets locked in this house in this chamber and he is left there to die. It’s a bit like being buried alive. I remember being completely freaked out by this story.
