Actually I don't get what you meant with this post.
Actually I have simmilar body build like Carlyle, I have a lot of facial hair usually too, unless I cut it, but I never cut it whole and didn't for a very long time and now I have even longer hair than him. So I would fit when I would be to act Rush in a parody IRL. I can show you photo(upload it and show it here publically), only I am afraid some people can stalk me, when they will see me, it is at least year old photo and I am grinning there anyway, but still.....or I could send it to your email. Well it is basically the only decent photo I got here.
I agree with this. And, the producers (BW at least) even said that they thought that if they got Carlysle to be on SGU, then they would be taken seriously in the industry. They were wrong. There's no doubt that he's a good actor, but SGU is a bad show. A good actor can't save something that is as terrible as SGU. I would think that Ming-Na was a horrible actress if I had never seen her on ER, where she was great! I think that Carlysle is supposed to be the "big guy" for the show, and BS is supposed the be the "eye-candy, cool-kid, jock" that everyone is in love with. But, I don't see Carlysle as leading man material for a show like SGU.
I don't get it either, because neither of those characters do anything for me. It's really Greer, TJ, and Eli that have a chance at carrying this show, IMO.
You probably look just fine Leo (T.C.K). No worries.
Would Sam Carter, Vala Mal Doran, and Dr. Lam be shown rubbing their horn-dog hormone crazed bodies over say, Daniel Jackson for a promo shot for no apparent reason? I thought Johansen was supposed to be the reserved one, Camile is a lesbian, the only one that makes sense is the slut Chloe who I guess just couldn't resist growling and pawing like a pussy. Meanwhile the one man who wants nothing to do with anyone is all cool about it. Just what audience is this photo targeted to?
He could use Data's line "I am FULLY functional, programmed with multiple techniques!"
Well, i actually think that Carlyle could actually carry the show, as a sort of corrupted Weir character. A superior they all agree has the situation under control, but throws hard balls and dubious commands. Rush would be perfect in a position of real power, where he can call the shots. For example if he would order Eli in the control-chair, thats real tension. Not some fat bloke sitting in it that nobody gives a fuck about, not even Young. Young wasnt outraged about what happened to the dude, he was outraged that Rush went over his head in making a decision.
Young can go fucking die, i had enough of wise boyscout daddy commanders. You sir are not Admiral Adama, i knew Admiral Adama!
For me a 3 part team would be fully enough, Greer, Eli and TJ supervised by Rush. Then they can have some guest stars on and off the show as the 4th member. The 4th member could be a wildcard, like they take whatever specialist they need for the job.
Greer can certainly keep his cool and make decisions, Eli is smart enough to figure shit out (he could be mentored by Rush more) and TJ is at least competent enough to realize shes not a fucking doctor.
Wray can be a IOA badguy, let her be on earth and plot and try to sabotage Rush.
Scott can be the gay cook and wear a pink skirt for all i care.
Also on offworld missions Eli is required to wear a fursuit and woof like a doog if he found something. This way Greer can say "Whats that Eli?! Were out of coffee?! Good boy!"
I'd love for Rush to come back to the ship and than really be the mad, plotting scientist and get rid of some of those whiny characters one by one, sorta like SGU goes Dexter
Young has to go, not only is he extremly anoying with all this wife/ex-wife stuff, but either he just abuses his power or when it comes down to making any crucial decisions takes the easys way out - not leader material
Scott, very close second! Try comparing Scott with Sheppard, as they were both in similar situations at the end of the pilot.....and then go rewatch some good Stargate and forget about Scott
Chloe. 'nough said!
Sorry, little rant. Just got here. Very, very disappointed Stargate (-/SGU) Fan
if you haven't seen Carlyle in anything good yet, go watch "The Tournament" - funny movie and gives you ideas of what should happen in SGU
Jackson: I wouldn't say this to anyone else, but for the first time, I'm scared.
O'Neill: I'm hungry.
Looks like the site grew a bit since i left.
But what i really love to see are the votings and ratings at amazon.
that's the true battleground right now.
i'm also looking forward to imdb numbers.
I'm loving the new signature man! That google automatic drop-down list is still hillarious, and correct, to me. LOL. And don't forget about the crapy DVD sales, we have that on our winning side of the battleground too.
