Good choice, very good choice. That guy knows how to play rotten evil scum.

Nice! he is a brilliant actor: Loved both T-Bag & Samuel Sullivan.

His character on Prison Break was truly despicable… He was a racist, pedophile serial rapist and murderer with no conscience. And yet he made it through all four seasons due to popularity with the audience. That says a lot, I think, about Knepper’s charisma and acting skills. Can’t wait to see him on SGU!

I put up with Season 4 of Heroes based only on the fact that Knepper was there. His inclusion in Universe in inspired. I am very happy about this.

after being more evil than Sylar ever wished, he better be the nicest guy ever…

from Heroes.. I don’t know him from any other shows and left a huge impression with me…

He’s very captivating, that’s for damned shure..

The point is you’re not supposed to like him, he’s a bad guy. Since I didn’t care for the Lucian Alliance in the other shows, it’s just another reason I don’t like this show. Even being the creative genius they claim to be I guess they couldn’t manage to pull off bringing back the replicators again. Looks like he’ll make a fine Lucian Alliance character.

Fantastic character actor and great news that he’s on the show. All the talent wants to be on the SGU train.

He’s a magnificent actor who I think will greatly increase show’s quality. Or at least make it more fun to watch – I hope…

Junebug

Cool. He will make a good bad guy.

Kosh

He’s a fantastic antagonist actor, that’s for sure.

Unfortunately, his character is being completely wasted as a Lucian Alliance spy or whatever… ugh. Congrats to Knepper on getting the job, I just wish it was with a character who had a more reasonable role than some rehashed Lucian Alliance silliness on Destiny. Hopefully with all the feedback they’ve gotten so far over Season 1, they can somehow make that work out… but man.. doesn’t give me hope.. Lucian Alliance?? blah..

You haven’t even seen his character yet.

Screw bringing the replicators back.

SGU is supposed to be in some other Galaxy how the heck does the Lucian Alliance tryes to get a Foodhole there? Maybe the lost Tribe Asgards were not strange enough….

Why in the World must we use old Enemys at all??

I like Knepper, but didn’t get into Prison Break and bailed on Heroes long before he joined. As others have pointed out, not terribly fond of a rehashed Lucian Alliance plotline. It seems impossible for the writers to sever the umbical cord to Earth or the Milky Way, and alas, any of the villians they createad. Willing to bet we’ll see Replicators soon ;)

I can’t stand this guy on Heroes. Hopefully this character is drastically different.

Robert Knepper was THE reason to watch Prison Break. He is an incredbile character actor. Check out his work on Carnivale. He’ll be great on SGU.

Quote from Brad Wright:

“One thing we decided, in our pursuit of realism, was to step away from rubber-faced, English-speaking aliens, and you will see none of those in the new show,” Wright said. “We will run into aliens. They’re just not going to be human, latex-faced, English-speaking aliens.”

The Lucian Alliance members are human, English speaking aliens. Sadly enough they aren’t even rubber-faced, which would make them more alien and more intersting. TPTB promised to have only truly strange aliens on SGU, but still they decided to reuse the lame Lucian Alliance from SG1. Couldn’t they be a little more creative?

Perfect guy for the job. By the time hes done with his part, everyone (the fans) will think Rush is not that bad at all. Knepper, although a great guy in real life im sure, knows how to play bad guys to perfection.

At least they are casting temporary quality actors.

@ Tanith
and yet they are still resorting to rehashing old human english speaking enemies for extended storylines.

Psw

@ Tanith

They still use for many episodes English speaking, human looking like aliens and they promised that they wouldn’t do it. I read some spoilers and I really got the impression that we will probably see MUCH MORE about the Lucian Alliance in the next 20 episodes than about the aliens in your link. And don’t forget that the Destiny is countless galaxies away from the Milky Way, which make using old lame Milky Way aliens even more uncreative.

Finally! SGU has an actual villain (or someone who at least comes into direct conflict with the crew). This raises my hopes. With that said, I do not know how and why the Lucian Alliance is being used in SGU. TPTB could have created a new enemy or used an already existing, but more terrifying, enemy to attack the Icarus Base. After seasons 4 and 5 of Atlantis where the Wraith were dying in one hit, I don’t see how gangsters are all of a sudden powerful enough to do so well against a fully armed military base with a… Read more »

Awesome!!!! I loooooved him in Prison Break and Heroes. He has charisma that you can’t ignore. I’m anxious to see him talk techno babble in a sci-fi series.

Now if only there was techno babble in this series.

He will “rock the ship” =)

Sorry couldn’t resist.

Sgbandnerd

Lucian Alliance all the way out there? I don’t know what I think about that. Wasn’t a fan of how they used the Lucian Alliance the first time. Maybe it will be better?

Adamtm
Member

sgbandnerd, afaik the spoilers and rumors suggest that the LA will arrive at the destiny in a modified Goauld cargo ship.

I wouldn’t count on it being better.

EvilSpaceAlien

@adamtm

Uh, no I think you’re wrong about that. I believe that they will gate in because were able to see Kiva stading infront of an open wromhole as a person shot through the gate, just like in Air.
I think you got the cargo ship from the eighteenth episode Subversion, where Kiva is supposed to be torturing Rush who is in Telfords body, on board a modified cargo ship.

I love the choice and he is a very talented actor but, for some reason, every show he is cast in dies shortly thereafter, e.g. Prison Break, Heroes (is falling VERY quickly despite it being one of my favorite shows), Carnivale and Presidio Med… Maybe this guy is the “black widow” of the industry.

Adamtm

K, my bad, confusing spoilers and stuff.

But its the scripts fault for being so convoluted with people in other peoples bodies in other galaxies and s**t lol

This guy has mastered the hart of playing evil. He also has his own fan base which is pretty large.
I am so looking forward T-Bag coming to stargate he will make the Gould look like amatours.

Lol, they are going to be laughing their heads of in Denmark.
“knep” is the F word and “Knepper” is the act – lots of lols when the credits come up *G*

I want to see Lucian Alliance. This would give SGU much needed relevance.

Looking forward to SGU to getting past the “Ship is Broken”.

I dont care that the ship is broken, but Stargate needs conflict other than interpersonal drama.

Season 1.5 cannot wait!!!
