BEAU BRIDGES JOINS THE CAST OF 'STARGATE SG-1'

MORE STARS BURST THROUGH THE 'GATE'

Beau Bridges, Mitch Pileggi and Lou Gossett Jr. Join the Casts Of SCI FI's 'Stargate SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis'

NEW YORK -- February 7, 2005 -- Hot on the heels of the exceptional January premieres of 'Stargate SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis,' SCI FI Channel and MGM Television Entertainment have scored a casting hat trick, welcoming three-time Emmy winner Beau Bridges, Oscar winner Lou Gossett, Jr. and sci-fi favorite Mitch Pileggi to the 'Stargate' family.

Bridges will join the cast of 'Stargate SG-1' as General Hank Landry, the new head of Stargate Command. When Jack O'Neill is promoted to oversee Homeworld Security, he hand-picks Landry to be his successor. In addition to being committed to a regular role on 'SG-1,' Bridges will also cross over to appear in a few episodes of 'Stargate Atlantis.' Gossett will also join the cast of 'SG-1' in a recurring role as a Jaffa leader who vies with Teal'c for political control of the new Jaffa nation.

Bridges and Gossett join returning cast members Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge and Michael Shanks, and newest team member Ben Browder, who plays Lieutenant Colonel Cameron Mitchell. With these fresh casting additions, 'Stargate SG-1' - currently the longest-running sci-fi drama on American television - is primed for even greater success as it enters its ninth original season.

X-Files alumnus Mitch Pileggi will take on 'Stargate Atlantis' in a recurring role as a hard-nosed colonel who butts heads with Dr. Weir (Torri Higginson) and Major Sheppard (Joe Flanigan).

Production on both 'Stargate SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis' is set to begin in March 2005 for summer premieres on SCI FI.

Robert C. Cooper and 'SG-1' co-creator Brad Wright will continue to serve as executive producers on both series, which are distributed by MGM Worldwide Television Distribution.
