February 23, 2009: Infoquake, by David Louis Edelman
What a day! We were on Icarus Base shooting a couple of HUGE scenes featuring Rush, Young, Scott, Chloe, Eli, Telford, Senator Armstrong, Dr. Damji, Lt. James, Sgt. Riley, Park, Brody, and Franklin. The set is spectacular, I'm loving the new gate set-up, and, surprise surprise, really loving those Icarus military uniforms. Stylin'! Chatted with David (Blue) and Brian (J. Smith), told them how terrific they were in the dailies we watched over lunch, then promised to say a special hello from them to their folks who have apparently dropped by the blog (specifically, Brian's mom and David's dad). So hi to Mrs. Smith and Mr. Blue. Your kids are lovely and wonderfully talented. We're taking great care of them and promise to return them in approximately a decade or so, whenever the show has run its course.
Andy Mikita, directing the three-parter, is running a tight ship - but everyone is enjoying themselves immensely. I got some nice behind-the-scenes pics of Bobby and Justin along with "the actor playing Telford" (not sure if his identity has been announced yet but I have to say - and did say - I've enjoyed his work, especially his performance in my very favorite Mark Wahlberg movie. And, no, it's not the movie you're thinking of. Or the next one. Or the one after that.).
Speaking of announcements, apparently TPTB are just getting their ducks in a row in preparation for the big announcement that should be coming ... very soon.
A truly phenomenal cast!
Stargate: Universe is tentatively scheduled to premiere October 2, 2009 on the SciFi Channel (US).
