Stargate Atlantis actor news

Update on the Stargate Atlantis folk! It's not the entire cast, but the key folk. If I've missed any  news, just add it to the comments below so others can read :)

Joe Flanigan
Alas his Fox/Walmart movie CHANGE OF PLANS had lukewarm ratings although good fan reaction. It will be out on DVD at Walmart on March 22nd. Otherwise, he seems to be taking a sabbatical from Twitter, despite fans’ pokes at him to tweet.
However, he did attend the Flight and Fable gallery opening – links and more at http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/465283.html
A video trailer came out of THE OTHER SIDE (at http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/464413.html) and screencaps and irreverent dialogue are at http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/464729.html
IMDB shows that his humorous scifi movie SPORE is in pre-production. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1770742/

David Hewlett
David’s RISE OF THE APES has been pushed back from a summer airing to a Thanksgiving 2011 release.
David did another podcast interview with Geekdad. You can download and listen to his interview at http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2011/01/the-geekdads-episode-83-every-games-better-with-zombies/
He’s been busy tweeting (if you have twitter and don’t follow @dhewlett, what’s wrong with you???) ;) – He noted humorously “
dhewlett: Looks like there is a PIN remake in the works! Guess I better start campaigning to play my dad?! bit.ly/dPO5AC
And he’s back to writing! “dhewlett: Thanks to chat yesterday with @Syfy I'm currently tapping away at a little something called Starcrossed...Keep those fingers crossed!”
A flashback to PIN, an odd movie David did years ago. http://www.fangoria.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3333:fango-flashback-pin&catid=59:fango-flashback&Itemid=189 An excerpt: “
However what the emotionally detached Dr. Linden does not realize is that his son Leon (SPLICE’s David Hewlett) is in fact a schizophrenic with traits of disassociative personality disorder with no real friends and believes Pin is actually alive.
A photo of him recently appeared from his ‘evil snow monkeys’ movie – it’s at this journal entry - http://wraithfodder.livejournal.com/466046.html
And he’s been blogging over at Blaster.com at http://blastr.com/2011/01/david-hewlett-my-hilariou.php and it’s got a record number of comments.

Torri Higginson
Remember the SyFy movie STONEHEDGE APOCALYPSE? Well, an enterprising fan screencapped the movie, mostly for Supernatural actor Misha Collins, but she also capped Torri as well. Details and download instructions at http://community.livejournal.com/rawr_caps/270961.html and, ohmygosh, they screencap a LOT of shows… NCIS, White Collar and more!

Rachel Luttrell
Will be releasing her first album, I WISH YOU LOVE, which is scheduled for a February 2011 release. You can watch a sample video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0KX82Cj4iM

Jason Momoa
There are a number of articles on the CONAN THE BARBARIAN movie, but nothing with too much news in it (mostly comparisons to the Arnie S version). However, in an interview with actor Stephen Lang at http://collider.com/stephen-lang-interview-terra-nova/69631/, he said “And, I’ve got to say that Jason Momoa, who plays Conan, was just spectacularly good. He was terrific. He did a great job and was a real stud, and I enjoying beating the hell out of him. That was fun.”
And Jason will soon be seen in the HBO miniseries
(premieres April 17th). Here’s a quote from an interview with producers at http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/01/09/game-of-thrones/  - “
And Jason Momoa [who plays Dothraki leader Khal Drogo] is just the coolest kid around.”

Kavan Smith
Will be in the Febraury 12th SyFy movie (9pm ET)  called IRON INVADER, in which an alien bacteria comes to earth, animates an iron sculpture, which of course stomps the living beejesus out of the redshirts in a small town cuz it’s cheaper to have just a few people in the cast rather than a lot ;) Kavan, at least according to video at http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/42084/syfys-iron-invader-goes-viral, is one of the heroes. Paul McGillion is in the cast as well, see below.

Paul McGillion
See above. Just saw an ad for it in SyFy. Paul plays the sheriff in IRON INVADER. Somehow, that’s just about 50/50 with being a doctor and dying horribly on a SyFy movie.

David Nykl
Oh wow, he’s got a cute dinosaur picture on his January 26th entry at http://lettersfrompegasus.blogspot.com/.  So visit his blog. He’s doing cons and such, but no new news to really report. Hmm, he needs to do another SyFy movie.

Rainbow Sun Francks
Plays the “computer maven” Corp. Dev Clark in this series that airs on CTV (and once aired on NBC, but got yanked due to low ratings). The Canadian series THE LISTENER comes back to CTV on February 8th.
Full press release at http://ctvmedia.ca/ctv/releases/release.asp?id=13424&yyyy=2011 and the series has a Facebook account at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=37939960589 where you can find promotional photos.

Jewel Staite
Her short horror movie THE PACT premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival (on January 24th). She plays a woman alone in a house of her late mother, and a sinister presence. More details and photos and trailers at http://www.fireflyfans.net/mthread.asp?b=36&t=47226&newsid=0

Jessica Steen
The first Dr. Weir, is in the season finale of FLASHPOINT, which will air right after the Superbowl, in Canada on CTV, not the US on CBS, alas.  However, CBS will be airing more episodes of Flashpoint in the summer of 2011, and ION TV has bought the entire series, so eventually you can see all of Jessica’s episodes, when she stepped in to fill the void for six episodes when Amy Jo Johnson was pregnant and temporarily off the series. UPDATE: Just got informed by @klharris39 on Twitter that Jessica has a recurring role as the character Lisa Stillman on the Canadian tv series HEARTLAND.

And that's it!
