Stargate Universe - Joseph Mallozzi's Blog: Photos of SGU Cast Dinner

March 4, 2010: The Stargate: Universe Cast Dinner at La Quercia! Check out the new network SGU 1.5 trailer!

BEST – CAST DINNER – EVER! And I’m not just saying that because I ended up sitting at a table with Alaina Huffman, Elyse Levesque, Jennifer Spence, and Julia Benson.

Okay – maybe that had a lot to do with it. They were lovely company and, as an added bonus, were completely stuffed after the pasta course, leaving me to tackle the entire pork platter all by my lonesome.

...And finally – Hey! The new network trailer for the back half of SGU’s first season is up at SyFy. Head on over to the SyFy website to see out and check out the other goodies or scroll down to the bottom of this blog’s right sidebar.

Inside the latest issue:

“They dropped us [from] these Huey helicopters. You’re very much in character because you’re in uniform, carrying a gun, and being dropped way off in the desert.” – Brian J. Smith

In the latest issue of The Official Stargate Magazine, newcomer Brian J. Smith tells us about his personal journey that led him to playing Lt. Matthew Scott in Stargate Universe. He also gives us his thoughts and feelings about the episodes so far, being caught in the middle of a love triangle, and the “life-altering experience” of filming in New Mexico.


“On my first day we lit a C-4 bomb, ran around a corner, and blew some stuff up. It was pretty cool.” – Jamil Walker Smith

Jamil Walker Smith has come a long way since starring in a TV commercial with baseball great Deion Sanders, and as Master Sergeant Ronald Greer, he is set to face a new set of challenges aboard the Destiny. In this issue, Smith discusses his relationships with the other crew onboard the Destiny, the dynamic between him and fellow military man, Lt. Matthew Scott, and how he’s not taking anything for granted.

“Landry was a hard-ass in the beginning, but I also wanted him to have a sense of humor. That’s what I thought Richard Dean Anderson brought to the show.” – Beau Bridges

Hailing from an acting dynasty, Beau Bridges brought a touch of class to SG-1 as General Hank Landry in seasons nine and ten. In the latest issue of The Official Stargate Magazine, Landry reveals how he hit the history books in preparation for the role, what it felt like being a newcomer to a long-running series, and his feelings on being nominated for an Emmy!

Also, GateWorld has an excerpt from the Robert C. Cooper interview.
