Interesting choices. I think It’s a good decision. And a 45 year old actress.. What happened to all these “young strapping, Stargate 90210 people that you guys were talking about?

I can’t wait, this show looks like it’s got a lot going for it. I’m getting excited.

Yup. 45-years old. This gets more and more like 90210 all the time… oh wait… no… no it doesn’t.

I like this so far.

Elyse Levesque was in the TV movie Journey To the Center of the Earth, not the theatrical movie.

Hmmm, very interesting choices. They aren’t no bodies. And Elyse Levesque is HOT too. And having a 45 year old really blows the whole 90210 idea out of the water…. I think I may enjoy this show….

strider is correct, and her role on Smallville was very minor, a guest stint in two episodes.

Still 90210. I’m betting Ming-Na will be recurring. Same for Lou Diamond Phillips. Notice how MGM won’t comment. Phillips’ character will be dead before the third episode airs. :)

I’m kind of hoping the writers will have some sort of AI on board with a personality that compliments the crew. They should also flood the first few eps with actors they can kill of quickly.

Make it more interesting.

So, Wray is this show’s Weir. Are they playing anagrams now? I just can’t help it but the regular cast is almost blindingly white (and even blond). They have, what, eight regulars and six of them are white. I know that people called SGA too white but half of the regular team were POCs, if you want to call them that, with Rachel Luttrell of mixed background, Rainbow Sun Francks African American and Jason Momoa of Hawaian descent. I just don’t get why the only minorities that they use have to be African American and Asian. Some of the SGU’s… Read more »

Sorry sorry sorry sorry for being such a butt wipe, apparently, SGU won’t suck as much. HOPE LIVES AGAIN, HOPE LIVES AGAIN.

Like others have said, what happened to a younger cast to appeal to a much younger audience?
Still i like the choices made so far. Truth is an older cast is more likely to stay with the show.

I knew TPTB wouldn’t fail us! I’m really liking the cast so far, quite a few of them look like they have some pretty good experience and they are not all 20-somethings.

I have to say that I am even more looking forward to the premier! :D

Katikatnik, Aside from the fact that between 65 and 75% of the US population is Caucasian, on SGU we have: Lou Diamond Philips (Col. Telford) who, like many Americans, is of mixed descent including Spanish, Chinese, Filipino, Hawaiian, and Cherokee heritage. Justin Louis (Everett Young) who was born in Portugal. Jamil Walker Smith (Ronald Greer) who is African-American. He is also the grandson of Greg Morris, so as a Mission Impossible fan I’m looking forward to this! Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (Darren Becker) is an African-Canadian. I know you complained that the only minorities in it were either back or Asian, but… Read more »

: First off, great observation Crabtree. Not only is there a wide range in the age of the cast, but they are pretty diverse.

Anyways, I am exited. This show is gonna be great.

this show is going to crash and burn. We will call it StarGaze not Stargate.
