Richard Woolsey visits Atlantis. From “The Seer”
Veteran actor Robert Picardo is most famous for his 7-year role as The Doctor in Star Trek: Voyager, and as Dr. Richard on China Beach. He also played Coach Cutlip on The Wonder Years, and has made guest appearances on a host of network series, such as The West Wing, C.S.I.: New York, and The O.C.
Picardo has appeared in five episodes of Stargate Atlantis to date, as well as seven episodes of Stargate SG-1. He was most recently seen interfering with Colonel Carter’s command in Season Four’s “The Seer,” and will return for the season finale, “The Last Man.”
Richard Woolsey was first introduced late in SG-1‘s seventh season, as a scrupulous N.I.D. agent and ally of Senator Robert Kinsey (“Heroes, Part 2”). He turned on Kinsey and impressed himself to the S.G.C. in “Inauguration,” and later left the N.I.D. to join the International Oversight Advisory — the organization that oversees the Atlantis expedition.
Season Five of Stargate Atlantis goes before cameras later this month for a full, 20-episode season. The show is expected to premiere later in 2008 on SCI FI in the United States.
