4400 GETS RAVISHING NEW CAST MEMBER: Fans of the Vancouver-shot series The 4400 — particularly the male contingent — will have an additional reason to tune in to the show’s fourth season this year. A second Australian cast member (the first being Jacqueline MacKenzie) has joined the series, actress Jenni Baird — who was last in Vancouver in 2005 to shoot the TV movie, Global Frequency. The strikingly beautiful Baird will play the new head of NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command), Meghan Doyle. Perhaps more intriguingly, she will also serve as a love interest for Tom Baldwin (Joel Gretsch). Doyle debuts in the fourth season premiere, Wrath Of Graham, which airs in Canada this September on SPACE.
STARGATE: CONTINUUM WRAP THIS WEEK: This week promises to be an emotional one for the cast of Stargate SG-1, whose direct-to-DVD movie, Stargate: Continuum — which includes scenes filmed at the U.S. Navy’s Applied Physics Laboratory Ice Station in the Arctic — completes shooting tomorrow. In the story, Carter (Amanda Tapping) Daniel (Michael Shanks) and Mitchell (Ben Browder) race back to a world where history has been changed, and the Stargate program has been erased from the timeline. Executive producer Brad Wright has stated that the project will be a stand-alone movie, and it’s hoped the project will launch a continued series of films based on SG-1. June 22 marks the finale of the long-running series itself, which has been a significant fixture at Vancouver’s Bridge Studios for the past 10 years.
