Formerly named Eli Hitchcock (now the fourth main character to be renamed since early casting documents were released in September), the character is described as “a total slacker who just happens to be an utter genius with anything he puts his mind to — mathematics, computers, video games. A lack confidence has left him with an acerbic sense of humor.”
Born on Long Island, New York, 29-year-old (30 on Saturday, according to Wikipedia) Blue studied at the University of Central Florida. In addition to his acting talents, he is also skilled in tap, jazz, hip-hop, ballet, and is a champion swing dancer.
The actor has appeared in seven episodes of the ABC hit comedy, according to the Internet Movie Database, playing Cliff St. Paul. He has also appeared on Moonlight, Scrubs, and Veronica Mars.
Blue will join Robert Carlyle (“Dr. Nicholas Rush”) and Brian J. Smith (“Lt. Matthew Scott”) and others still to be announced when filming begins early next month. Check out his official Web site at David-Blue.com, and learn more about SGU in GateWorld’s Launch Center!
