Actor Ben Browder’s Fans Respond
excerpt:

When I suggested actor Ben Browder as a potential adventure hero, it was because I was immediately struck by that idea as I watched Browder in Farscape (1999-2003). I have only recently become aware of Ben Browder both as an actor and as the character John Crichton in the Farscape series, and it was quite by accident that I did. My son, serving in Afghanistan, ordered the complete Farscape series on-line to be sent home – you can tell he’s looking forward to a long leave. When it arrived I followed his instructions to open the box and verify the contents. Inside was the first season of the Farscape series, and I was intrigued by the packaging. I watched a couple of episodes, then the entire first season. I was hooked. When I wrote my son about how I looked forward to each new episode, he got a charge out of the fact that he had finally introduced me to a movie I liked - in this case, series. He's been force feeding me his own film and book choices for years, and we have never - until now - found one that we both like. We had fun talking about the Farscape episodes through e-mail exchanges during the time he was deployed (he has recently returned stateside).

She wants him to take on an action hero role, and there's nary a mention of his action role on Stargate. ;)

I'm sorry to say this amused me from the original:

Like George Clooney, Browder is an actor who could easily make the transition from television to film success under the direction of Tarantino or Spielberg; and with the right film vehicle – like an action adventure hero.
Yes, most actors could make an easy transition from TV to film with the right vehicle, and a massively talented director. :rolleyes:
