Sci-Fi Storm

Big stars joining SG-1, Atlantis

by on Feb.07, 2005, under Television

The SCI FI Channel has announced three new cast members joining its flagship Stargate series: Emmy winner Beau Bridges (10.5) will join SG-1 as General Hank Landry, the new head of the SGC (Richard Dean Anderson’s role of Gen. Jack O’Neill moves to “Homeworld Security”, and likely offscreen); Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr. (Enemy Mine) has a recurring role on SG-1 as a Jaffa competing with Teal’c for control of the Jaffa; and Mitch Pileggi (X-Files) will have a recurring role on Atlantis as a hard-nosed Colonel giving Dr. Weir and Maj. Sheppard a tough time. Not sure how he gets there though…

    Spoiler for Atlantis!

    (Hm.. why can’t we just click on reply under the story, but have to go to discussions?)

    Anyway, bit of a spoiler for Atlantis I suppose:

    Towards the end of the season, Earth will find a way to open a gate and send reinforcements.
