    I really liked him in The Full Monty, although haven’t seen any of his other roles.
    Guess time will tell if joining the SG universe was a good career move?

    Actually the American Version of CRACKER was called “CRACKER” over here in the States. The US version was called “FITZ” over in the UK. I urge everyone to check out the UK “Cracker” episode, “To Be A Somebody”, Robert is STUNNING!!! And I am addicted to HAMISH MacBETH, GREAT SERIES!!!!!

    Geeeze people, anyone see Hitler: Rise of Evil? Takes a lot of guts to take that one on. Especially since, as far as I know, Hitler wasn’t a Scots.

    I was cruising on Netflix a week or two ago and I a picture of a younger Robert Carlyle. I immediately put it in my Que. It was Called Monroe: Class of ’76. In the IMDb it is listed just as Class of ’76. It is a crime/drama/mystery/thriller which is very “British” and does move slowly in the first half. However, the story overall is interesting and keeps you guessing a bit. But the real fun is watching Mr. Carlyle’s nuances in his performance.

    Also, he had a role in the Kiefer Sutherland made for TV movie 24: Redemption. This movie was released between the 6th & 7th seasons of 24.

    Carlyle is awesome. He’s like SGU’s answer to RDA back in the early days of SG1 in terms of the established actor who could carry the show on his own.

    I’m stoked for more Rush in season 2. I can see … oh screw it. I can see a Universe of possibility in Rush’s character.

    Robert Carlyle was brilliant in Hamish Macbeth, he was young there and I fancied him like mad!! and everyone loved wee Jock the West Highland Terrier, A must see film is The Full Monty for all Roberts fans it really highlighted the problems the mine closures caused over here in England and how those men overcame the hard situation they were put in but a great film that wouldn’t have been the same without Robert at the lead.

    One of my favourite actors! “Trainspotting”…”The 51st State”…”28 Weeks Later”…”The World Is Not Enough”…”Gunpowder, Treason, & Plot”…all amazing to watch and all showing a wide-variety of Robert Carlyle’s acting talent! When I heard he had been cast in “SGU” I was surprised and completely overjoyed at the news! It’s been brilliant seeing him as Nicholas Rush and I can’t wait to see more of him as this character in Season 2 next month!

    Mr. Carlyle is one of the most underrated and best actors out there. I’ve seen everything of his except for a couple very early tv performances that are impossible to find. But from his ‘working man’ in ‘Riff Raff’ to his determined bus-driver in ‘Carla’, his gangster in ‘Face’, his tender lover in ‘Priest’ and his ‘bad boy’ in the Full Monty, Mr. Carlyle shows a remarkable range and incredible subtlety of expression and emotion.

    I’m enjoying the hell out of seeing him on ‘regular tv’ in Stargate, and urge anyone reading this to seek out his older movies and tv shows and just…dive in. You won’t be disappointed!

    He is a superb actor, but im maybe biased because im Scottish.

    I was delighted when he joined SGU, a brilliant actor from my homeland, who joined my fave program.

    I actually met Robert at the Edinburgh festival a good five or six years ago, got my photo taken with him and an autograph.
