    Do you mean the actors or the characters?

    The characters are British (Beal), Egyptian (Wasif), Abydonian (Kasuf) and I think American (Langfords). Although the Langfords were Swedish, I think, in Stargate (1994).

    The actors are all American, except Ellie. She's Australian, and Aylam (Brücke) is Isrealean.

    Indeed, the Langfords are meant to be American in the SG-1 continuity. In the movie it's ambiguous. The actress who played the young Catherine is American (who also had a cameo in Origins), the actress (Viveca Lindfors) who played the older present day Catherine was Swedish, and the actor that played Prof. Langford (Erik Holland) was Norwegian. The only non-English dialogue spoken by any of them is Prof. Langford and his partner (identified as "Taylor" in an early script and the novelization) during the prologue. They spoke Swedish (and the subtitles identify as such), but I believe there was criticism that their pronunciation was terrible (I don't know for certain, so don't take my word for it).

    Funny note: despite the obvious Swedish/Scandinavian heritage of the characters in the movie, and the apparent retcon to American in the series, the RPG book states they were German.

    Does anyone else remember Scarecrow and Mrs. King? What do those red hats mean?

    I have no idea about what that title refers to, but I assume the red hat is about Wasif's fez?

    So, on that notion, everything you ever wanted to know about the fez as part of military uniforms (and otherwise -- according to the Doctor they are cool afterall).

    Kasuf looks like Punch from the Cowboy Bebop movie.

    There's something about the uniform - is this navy rather than air force?

    Nope, both Wasif and Beal wear the British military land army uniform of the time (Wasif with a fez).
