    The casting audition sides for Stargate Universe characters are starting to emerge. These audition sides are not in context of the pilot of the new television series, which won’t start production until February 2009, but are apparently meant to determine character types and the actors’ ranges.

    The three sides available thus far are for Tamara Johanson, Eli Hitchcock, and Jared Nash. Each actor will be reading from previous Stargate scripts, which have been somewhat modified for the auditions.

    In the case of Tamara, the actor will be reading the part of Jennifer Keller from the Atlantis episodes “First Strike” and “Missing”. Like Keller, Tamara will be thrown into a medical leadership position before she is ready, but will also be required to show compassion and understanding. She will show the insecurity that Keller did in her conversation with Elizabeth Weir about taking over for the late Dr. Carson Beckett from “First Strike” and her distaste for local cuisine like Keller did in “Missing”. That time was also when Keller learned of Teyla’s romantic involvement with Kanaan.

    Eli’s audition sides are Rodney McKay’s part from the SG-1 episode “Redemption” concerning Anubis’s attack on Earth through the Stargate. He converses with Carter about how to knock out the technology Anubis was using to bombard the Stargate. The actor will most likely face the same level of technobabble that David Hewlett faced in portraying a math and science genius, as well as demonstrate a rather acerbic, sarcastic attitude. The audition also includes McKay’s conversation with Carter in the infirmary about wanting to be a pianist to show a more affable side to the character.

    The actor reading for Jared Nash’s role will audition from John Sheppard’s rescue-our-people balcony conversation with Elizabeth Weir from the Atlantis pilot “Rising”. Like Sheppard, Nash will be thrown into a military position of leadership. It isn’t clear, though, that Nash’s commander, Col. Everett Young, will face the same fate as Sheppard’s commanding officer, Col. Marshall Sumner. Additionally, Nash’s actor will have to read from Daniel’s part in the SG-1 series finale “Unending” where Daniel confronts Vala about her constant sexual solicitations and breaks down his wall of emotional self-protection.

    All three characters are in the age range 20 to 25.

    Keep up with the latest on the new series in Solution’s Stargate Universe Guide in the Stargate Wiki.
    The above is from the site linked.
    I guess that they don't have a pilot script for them to read and they need a feel for how the actor will play a "type" of character.

    But, what annoys me is that it just reinforces the fact that these new people are "established characters-lite". I liked the original versions and don't want to see younger clones of them. It would have been nice to see fresh new people that aren't carbon copies of Shep, McKay, Keller.

    Whats wrong with Torri and Paul? Theres very few people who don't like those characters or their actors.

    Ten Years, A Lot Of Enemies, A Presumed Death, A Complete Back Story Rewrite....But Still Looking Good!

    and what about , god do i hate him with a passion, but thats just me, i thik i hate the character more than the actor, although I have yet to see him in anything else so i wouldn't know for sure.

    Either way, i with you on the 'they haven't made any mistakes yet' (bar shep) every other character i love, I have less love for Rodney, just because he's so arrogant, i mean come on man, eat some damn humble pie lol

    As for the cast, i hope they get someone like Summer Glau for Chloe Carpenter, I think that would help people like the character more, or better still, get Summer Glau, although that is never gonna happen lol

    these are just basic scrips. if they can find the people with these basic abilities, then they can go develop the character
