The present team seem pretty good,and as the Show hasn't aired yet,it's difficult to speculate (for me,anyway) ! :D

I meant just completely remaking the team as if the origanal members were not there.

I don't think it can really be changed, since who's to judge yet

I would have added Jonas, for starters. But speculation about whom I would have added is as pointless as trying to recast SG-1. The fact remains: the cast is what it is.

Why not, as an alternative, suggest characters for an original team? It can be the theoretical second group that will/would be sent to Atlantis. That leaves the field much more open, IMO, and I'd still have Jonas in there somewhere. ;) I'd also consider Dr. Michaels from the ep Frozen, Grogan and/or Major Pierce. Or maybe Grogan and that Russian military woman from The Tomb. It IS supposed to be an international team, after all. Michaels could be from a foreign country, too. Then someone from China and someone from England to round out the group.

OK ! I can do that,at least. (Wish lists are fine ! ;) )
Had a quick think,and came up with these actors........

Nathan Fillion (Sheppard)
Gillian Anderson (Weir)
Denis Leary (McKay)
Hugh Jackman(Beckett)
Will Smith (Ford)
Eliza Dushku (Teyla)

Sheesh .........No way would my choices get picked, anyway.
They'd cost way too much ! :eek:

True ! I choose to see it as a fun exercise ,but I suppose it could be seen as futile really.
Passes the time nicely,though,IMO. ;)

Have you(or anyone) got any ideas for a truly international team ? :D

Elwe Singollo
June 26th, 2004, 02:35 PM
Hehe, I liked your pick for Nathon Fillion and Eliza Dushku, haha... Only reason i like them because they were apart of Buffyverse, haha...

I have made up my little mind, of course Jonas would be stuck somewhere in the new group :) But Jonas needs a buddy, but yah, that would be SG1, haha... Gosh, possibilities, possibilities, makes my mind smile :)

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 02:41 PM
I have to be honest,lmj ! I turned into a Fillion and Dushku fan because of Buffy TVS ,but I really like their screen presence in other things too ! :D

(I like Nathan in Firefly and Eliza in Tru Calling,but due to RL getting in the way,I've yet to see all of those Series. Hope Sci-Fi or Sky repeat them.... :o )

I'd include Jonas,but the rule was "no SG-1 personnel",so I thought,maybe he wasn't allowed ....*Sigh* :(

Elwe Singollo
June 26th, 2004, 02:49 PM
Wah :( I missed that memo part :( Haha... Well, i'm disregarding the original rules, and heres my team (same actors/actresses playing them of course)

Simple and Clean...

SG1 + Jonas Quinn :)

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 03:01 PM
Well,if you're going to pick SG-1 and JQ .....hmmmm.....how're they supposed to do two shows at the same time ? :confused:

AHA ! Use Harlan's Duplicates,(assuming he made more) and, er, fiddle the plotlines about, so JQ can join SGA too !! ;)

Solved ! :D

Elwe Singollo
June 26th, 2004, 03:05 PM
I was talking about SG1's :) Haha, like i said, i'm not following the rules, haha... Ok, period :) Haha... I think it would be weird seeing Hugh Jackman playing the doctor, haha..

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 03:09 PM
Ah phooey,all that thinking up a way to have them do both shows wasted ! LOL ! :D
Hugh Jackman :*Sigh*.....I can dream .... ;)

Elwe Singollo
June 26th, 2004, 03:14 PM
Hehe... I would like to see Eliza do a guest spot on either Atlantis or SG1, but i wouldn't know what she would play ;p

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 03:26 PM
Hmm .... Jaffa priestess? Goa'uld System Lord ? Atlantean diplomat ? USAF Fitness Instructor or Prometheus Officer........
OMG ! I have no idea really !
(On the other hand, I've no idea if she'd even want to appear on either show,nor if the PTBs would even have her on their "Wish Lists". :o )

ShadowMaat
June 26th, 2004, 03:32 PM

Well, the way I see it, TPTB never considered Jonas a part of SG-1, so why should I? :P

And if we're just re-casting the same roles:
Nick Lea as Sheppard
Kristen Cloke as Weir
Gordon Michael Woolvett as Ford
Christian Bocher as Ingram (no one other than David is playing McKay on MY watch!)
Leanne Adachi as Teyla (she hasn't been in much that's recognizable, but so what?)
Tony Todd as Beckett

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 03:42 PM
Good point about Jonas,IMO. ;)
Even better point about McKay ! (I can't really see D. Leary in that role....even in full rant mode !)
OK, I'll recast Leary as Dr Ingram then.... :D

I really like Kristen Cloke (Space Above And Beyond,etc) :cool:

Embarrassingly,I don't know the other Actors on your list .*Hangs head in shame *

Urgo, Harlan, Charlie (crystal), Chaka, Lt. Tyler.

Nick Lea was Krycek on X-Files. I believe he's now Catherine's boytoy on CSI.
Gordon Michael Woolvett is Harper on Andromeda. Nice actor in desperate need of rescuing from a crappy show.
Christian Bocher played the Daniel Clone (Ray Gunne, AKA Dr. Levant) in Wormhole X-treme!
Leanne Adachi I kinda picked at random from a Who's Who of Canadian actors, but she's been in a few shows I like and does the voice of Luk-Do on Sagwa the Chinese-Siamese Cat. ;)
Tony Todd has been in a bunch of things and it's surprising he hasn't been on Stargate yet. He's probably best known for his role as Candyman. :D

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 04:20 PM
Right ! Now I remember Nick Lea and Christian Bocher ! :D
Excellent choices, IMO ...Oh,I'm useless with names sometimes !
I haven't seen much of Andromeda,so I haven't a clue about "Harper".Or the other Actors.Sorry ! :o

ShadowMaat
June 26th, 2004, 04:57 PM
Harper is a cocky wise-cracking smartass, but he's also the best thing that could have happened to Andromeda, IMO. I also remember the actor from Mission Genesis, which was a SCIFI show a number of years back. The role was a little more serious, I think, but he still did well with it.

Tony Todd is this gigantic towering black guy with a deep voice who tends to bring a certain scary intensity to all his roles. Loved him as Candyman, loved him as the Mortician in Final Destination, loved him in his guest role on Andromeda... sensing a pattern, here? ;) He's also one of two or three people I think might do justice to voicing the character of Death in any Discworld movies.

Bagpuss
June 26th, 2004, 05:10 PM
LOL !! I've got to check out the repeats of Andromeda,as soon as possible .

Voice of TP's "Death",.....Hmmm,difficult to cast, IMO,but sounds like Tony Todd could be the one ! ;)
I think Christopher Lee did the voice, on the animated version of one of Terry's books ,...but I can't remember for sure.
(I'm tired, and the grey cells are trying to pack up for the day! I'll try to look it up tomorrow .)

I think, originally the Tok'ra Lantash was suppose to be in Atlantis but he died. I would still like to see a Tok'ra from SG-1 crossover to Atlantis.

For me, Death is somewhere between Tony Todd and James Earl Jones.

International Atlantis team (based on US and Canada at NORAD + the permanent Security Council members and drawing basic characterisations from past roles):

Representing the USA, Nathan Fillion as the slightly cynical commander with a quick temper and a heart of gold;
Representing the UK, Richard Coyle as the slightly nutty linguist and folklorist who's seen too much;
Representing Russia, Milla Jovovich (because I'm blowed if I can name any Russian actresses, so I'll have to go with the only Ukranian I can think of) as the slightly dodgy physicist with a guilty conscience;
Representing France, Jean Reno as the slighty mysterious intelligence man with a shadowy past;
Representing China, Zhang Ziyi as the slightly jaded special forces veteran in search of her own humanity;
Representing Canada, David Hewlett as Dr Rodney McKay, since I don't want to have Shadow all up on my case.

Jprime
June 27th, 2004, 07:31 PM
LOL how much time did you spend thinking that up? Looks complex....

More than my life's worth to leave him off :D

Do you in the States know Richard Coyle at all? Did Strange ever make the trip?

If you could pick anyone who has appeared on SG-1 (guest stars, stars, recurring characters) to be in Atlantis as either a starring or reccuring role, who would you choose? You can choose SG-1 members, but no one who is dead is eligible (sorry Dr. Frasier fans).

David85

You really need some spoilers about the Doctor there, not everyone has seen it.

I would bought Jonus there so he can become his own charater and not just a Daniel clone, and put the real Dr. Weir, not the new one, but Jessica Steen. :)

Erik Pasternak
June 30th, 2004, 12:46 PM
OK, spoiler warning added. I would like to see Jonas appear in Atlantis as well, but I think we should see how Torri Higginson does as Dr. Weir before we choose between the two.

David85
June 30th, 2004, 01:20 PM
My point is pick one and stick to it because my mom is a "little" slow and I will have to explain who that is when season 8 starts.

I had this topic but they started talking about actors...

I would put...
...Chaka(Unas)
...Jonas
...Umm I 'm out of characters :D

The other thread is called The Team (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=1539) and yes, it's pretty much like this one. However, the original post never specified characters or actors, all it said was "who would you put on the team" which is partly why it diverged into actors rather than sticking strictly to characters.

There's also the issue of limiting things to ONLY those seen on SG-1. Atlantis can hardly become unique if all it ever has is castoffs from the main series.

That being said, my fave castoff is still Jonas and I think it's borderline criminal that he wasn't included in Atlantis. And don't tell me "it wouldn't have worked story-wise". Given some of the last minute hack jobs TPTB have spit out, I think they would have been perfectly capable of finding a logical reason to include Jonas in Atlantis... IF they wanted to.

I think I already listed my other character choices on the other thread.

I've merged the 2 threads because they're basically exactly the same topic. And I would have loved to have seen Jonas on Atlantis but I'm not holding my breath. Or maybe Alec Baldwin's character for absolutely no reason other than that I think he's completely drool-worthy. What can I say? I'm feeling shallow today.

Adam, Alec, they're all the same. ;) I don't think ANY of them are attractive, not the Baldwin Boys and not Adam. So there. :P

Well, I'm not going to comment on Adam's attractiveness, but he is in 3 of my favourtie tv shows (SG-1, Angel, Firefly) so he gets loads of cred for that! :P

Doug Hutchison would be cool in a guest appearance. I dunno if he's really "team" material, though, unless he's the strange teammate who ultimately ends up betraying his species and trying to get his teammates killed by joining the bad guys. ;)
