Chicago Day 2

Joining Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe for day 2 of the Chicago auditions was Fabrice Calmels from the Joffrey Ballet.

First up was “The Puppet” Paul Brushaber. He is 18 and from Mokena, Illinois. He makes it look so easy but I cannot imagine how difficult his style of dance is. I would send him to choreography just to give him an opportunity to partner with someone. The judges surprised me. Mary wanted to live in his world. Fabrice loved that he created his own style.

Emily James, a 21-year-old from North Kingstown, Rhode Island, auditioned twice before in seasons 8 and 9. She took season 10 auditions off so she could use her degree, but she discovered that it is dance is what she should be doing. I got a mini-set of goosebumps at times. She has power but there is something missing…

To Gate or not to Gate

When I first heard that Stargate was coming back I was jumping for joy.  I couldn’t believe that after all this time, it was returning.

Then I heard that it was to continue from the initial movie back in ’94 with James Spader and Kurt Russell.  I thought, hmm, ok,, how is that going to work?  Are they going to get the same guys to play Jack and Daniel?  Or are they recasting the whole lot.

But not only are they making a reboot,, they are making a trilogy.  There’s going to be THREE movies.  But then my obvious question,,, What about SG1, SGA and SGU??

I know that they wanted to continue from the story line from the original movie, but c’mon?? 17 years of Stargate because of the initial movie, to be ignored??  I do hope that they reference the 3 Stargate series we know and love somehow within this new Stargate.

Personally, I’m going to watch anything with the name Stargate in it.  Mind you, I never did see the cartoon version of it.  Though, from what I’ve been told by people who has seen at least a couple of episodes, I’m not missing much.  But still, I’d like to eventually watch that version so I can have my own opinion.

I just had a thought,,,, I know, dangerous.  But if they do recast some of the original people from the movie for this trilogy, will they have Alexis Cruz, Erick Avari and Mili Avital??  Personally, I liked her version of Sha’uri.  No disrespect to Vaitiare Hirshon (Bandera), but if you’re going to have the brother stay the same , then why change the sister?  Besides changing the person, they even changed the way you spell her characters name.  Sha’uri to Sha’re??? That’s what didn’t make sense to me. I’m sure there was a reason why Ms. Avital wasn’t picked.  Plus, they even kept their father the same,,, Kasuf played by Mr. Avari.  But anyway.

I’m going to keep an open mind when this comes out.  So we’ll see how it goes.  I am excited, even though it might not sound like it,, but I am.  It’s STARGATE after all, :)

Thx for popping by and reading my little rant of sorts.

Until next time.
