BEST – CAST DINNER – EVER!  And I’m not just saying that because I ended up sitting at a table with Alaina Huffman, Elyse Levesque, Jennifer Spence, and Julia Benson.

Okay – maybe that had a lot to do with it.   They were lovely company and, as an added bonus, were completely stuffed after the pasta course, leaving me to tackle the entire pork platter all by my lonesome.

Elyse Levesque (Chloe), Jamil Walker Smith (Greer), and Patrick Gilmore (Volker) – best of buddies?
Director Will Waring says: “Hey, it’s Carl Binder!”
Brian J. Smith (Scott) and Patrick Gilmore (Volker).
Louis Ferreira (Young) and Rob Cooper (creator, writer, director, exec producer)
The waiter came by and offered us some veal appies. “You mean veal tongue,”I said. Yes, indeedy. Veal tongue. And delicious.
Kaleena Kiff (co-creator of Riese).
The always awesome Alaina Huffman (Tamara).
The sablefish – which Brad likened to butter.
Julia Benson (James).
Saffron risotto. Carl's favorite!
Our main course: the porchetta.
Jennifer Spence (Park)
Elyse Levesque (Chloe).
Michelle Mullie, Paul Mullie, and Carl Binder.
Michelle enjoys the vino while Paul feels a migraine coming on.
Jen Spence wonders where the hell dessert is.
Oh, there it is. As usual, these desserts are served with never-quite-enough ice cream and/or cream. In the case of our table, it was cream but in the case of the other tables, it was ice cream - which, quite frankly, I would've preferred. What gives?
Brian J. Smith says: "Good night."

And finally – Hey!  The new network trailer for the back half of SGU’s first season is up at SyFy.  Head on over to the SyFy website to see out and check out the other goodies (http://video.syfy.com/shows/universe/promos_trailers_4/the-ride–stargate-universe/v1206467#self) or scroll down to the bottom of this blog’s right sidebar.

My goodness, director Will Waring is a handsome man! I’ve always enjoyed watching him on the DVD’s special Director’s featurettes.

WOW!!! Nice picture of Alaina Huffman. I didn’t realize who the hot blonde was until I scrolled down and saw her name.

Nice pics (aside from Jen Spence whose photos seems mysteriously dark; is she hiding?).

Joe, the BC Film Commission website is listing Robert Carlyle as directing SGU. Is he directing an episode and if so, which is it? (and the big question if he is: will it all be improv?)

Cool pix, Thanks Joe. Our dinner the other was a blast but I think your cast party kinda blows ours out of the water. We had a great time Tuesday night, Sheryl, Deni and Deni’s daughter Lauren are a lot of fun to be around. It just amazes how your blog has brought so many people together in so many ways. I have pics but I gotta get permission to post them. I think they all came out great!

Looking forward to SGU.

I loved the trailer. Now I’m feeling the effects of the Inverse Time Law: The fewer days left until April 2, the longer the apparent length of the day.

It’s like all the men grew out their hair during the hiatus!

The trailer is A-A-A-W-E—–S-O-M-E. Michael Shanks? Wait–was that a female wraith? Rush kissing someone? What in the world are Volker and Brody up to?

I’m hyperventilating.

BTW missed posting on the last few blogs–

Huge welcome to Remi (love your work on Caprica and 24) and Linda (loved Chicago Hope). Fantastic additions to Season 2. Definitely agree with the sentiments of adding a woman to the writing staff. It can only make things even better.

@aveddy: My sympathies about Simon.

Hey Joe

You know, I’ve ate a pretty wide range of things over my life. Including Hagis, steak & kidney pie, snails, oysters as well as a host of critters that roam, crawl, swim or slither around Africa and North America. But for all that, I just can’t put something in my mouth that was in something elses mouth. Yes, I’m talking about tongue… I just can’t do it. You’re a better man than me, Joe, a better man.

OMG the HAIR!!!

And by the way, Paul Mullie has the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. I’ve been meaning to say that for years.

bummer, and nice pics and the second half looks amazing.

And by unsolicited submissions, do you mean to your email, or unsolicited by MGM/Stargate peoples?

All those ladies??! Joe, I think you went straight from ‘international playboy’ to ‘man-ho’. wink

Good-looking bunch of folks – and food – and good to see Brian all smiles! smile One thing about Brian though (and Brian – if you’re reading this – PLEASE – take it as a compliment)…

For some reason, he reminds me of Jeff, from Coupling…and I LOVED Jeff:

Maybe it’s the hair…

Just curious, what kind of camera did you use to take this shots? The close-ups are pretty good. Specifically how many mega-pixels?
Thanks

All I see is a black square…..they must be blocking folks from overseas from seeing it, but if it was the video the awesome Carl Binder sent around this morning then wow!! I wanna know who Rush was kissing. Lots to see in that promo. I watched it over and over and over and…..well I had to go to work then.

Cheers, Chev

not fair. I was just saying to Das earlier this evening that I wasn’t going to be continuing on. SGU just wasn’t me (too much drama) and I had held on to the mid-season break and was done. Now you guys throw in Shanks as well as give a bit more action?!
I’m so torn and yet how can I miss Shanks? argh!

Everyone looks fantastic! Louis has hair! I nearly didn’t recognize him.

Yay. Same week as Doctor Who comes back in the UK (assuming Sky plays it a few days later). Looks like a good scifi week!
