    GateWorld Can SGU Benefit From Celeb(Minor or Major) Appearances?

    Title pretty much says it all. I'm NOT talking about recurring roles though but 1 time appearances in different roles both good and evil etc. Can SGU benefit in the ratings dept. by doing the same thing Law & Order does with guest appearances?

    well, the big problem i see is catching up viewers for one episode. the celeb episodes would have to be fairly stand alone ie: Time. but otherwise, i dont see why not!

    It really depends on the celebrity.

    Ahh, stunt casting. This isn't something new from the Stargate franchise. They have been there and done that, I expect it to happen in the future.

    Sure, why not? Most shows can.

    Yes it does. Suppose a couple of the characters visited Earth and went to a concert... nah, that would never happen.

    Only if they couldn't negotiate the price down. For all we know Angelina Jolie could be a fan of SGU and would love to be on the show, so she does the guest spot for the bare minimum.

    Stranger things have happened.

    I'll let the writers get away with another AU/Time Travel if we get more Shooter McGavin.

    Get Nathan Fillion or Alan Tudyk on and you'll get a good influx of viewers.

    There's an 80 strong crew and we've only met a fraction of them, if would be easy to introduce new characters from the group, just like Lost did. Plus, they don't have to be on the ship at all. If they want stunt casting then someone like Matthew Morrison or Christina Hendricks would go down well, either that or the obligatory Firefly alum. My choice would be Elizabeth Mitchell however.

    I can't see Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie, Will Farrel going in on something like this, an series i mean, for a long time. Those that have are minor or are near the end of the carrer. Who has the actor that was in charge of the stones in one episode, the one where Young found Telford on his house talking to Emily. He is rather known in the media. But can't remember the name. He reminds me of Tobey Maguire.

    This is the kind of actor SGU needs. Fresh and promissing actor that could grow up alongside SGU.
