I have read some of the news reviews that have been here on GateWorld about the upcoming Stargate Universe and all I can say is if they want as good a programme as it all started with Richard Dean Anderson, then they couldnt go wrong with casting Adam Baldwin in the lead role. They want the same humour yet a star to take the lead role and I personally think he would be the rightr man for the job. Having played in SG-1 previosuly he's a known part of the Stargate franchise to fans already and to newcomers would be a welcome face in a cast of new characters. In my oipinion he has shown he can be just as funn as RDA if anyone has watched the series Firefly and Angel they can see he can play funny when needs must and also has the RDA factor of being cool at the same time. He gets my vote and all I can say is I hope to see him soon resprisng his role as Col Dave Dixon, hopefully promoted to a higher rank - to lead the new team into Stargate Universe.
Thats it my little rant and I hope you'll all agree with me a very good choice, RDA topped it all when he played Jack, so there can never be another Jack, ok Cam's tried and Shepherd too but hey RDA nailed it big time. But lets see if Adam can fill his shoes in a new role.
long live Sci fi and Stargate - may it reign forever
