The Official Sci Fi Press Release On The New Characters
SCI FI Channel announced the casting of Justin Louis, David Blue, Brian J. Smith and Jamil Walker Smith in its upcoming original series Stargate Universe. The four join Robert Carlyle, who will play Dr. Nicholas Rush in the latest adventure in the Stargate franchise, which is produced by MGM television.
Production will begin in Vancouver, Canada, in February with an eye toward a fall premiere.
Edgier and younger in tone than the two previous series, Stargate Universe follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth.
Justin Louis (Hidden Hills) will portray Col. Everett Young, an experienced Stargate team leader. Married, with years of tough decisions under his belt, Young has learned never to take anything for granted and stays on top of his team so they remain alive.
David Blue (Ugly Betty) stars as Eli Wallace, a total slacker who just happens to be an utter genius with anything he puts his mind to: mathematics, computers, video games. A lack of confidence has left him with an acerbic sense of humor.
Brian J. Smith is Lt. Matthew Scott, a junior member of the Stargate team. Green and rough around the edges, he is thrust into the role of leader well before he’s ready for the responsibility and must learn to command, earn respect through action and manage the diverse personalities aboard the ship.
Jamil Walker Smith will portray Sr. Sgt. Ronald Greer, a Marine with a temper you don’t want to mess with. His past is mysterious, but it’s clear something dark formed the hard shell around him.
Brad Wright and Robert Cooper of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis will serve as executive producers and writers on the new series.
