Richard Dean Anderson, who played (now) General Jack O’Neill on Stargate SG-1 for 8 seasons, will reprise his role in the upcoming 10th season of SG-1, as well as Stargate Atlantis, notably in the former’s landmark 200th episode. Also appearing in the episode, titled “200”, will be Willie Garson, who played the alien “Martin” in a couple episodes. The episode plot seems to be related to the last episode Willie appeared in, regarding a television show that closely resembles the Stargate team. The upcoming tenth season makes Stargate SG-1 the longest running American SF TV show, passing The X-Files at 9 seasons.
A day after it was announced that The Invincible by Polish SF writer Stanislaw Lem was in development, we learn that Lem himself has passed away. Lem’s most famous work was Solaris, which was made into movies twice – once in 1972, and again with an American remake in 2002 by Steven Soderbergh starring George Clooney.
