First off, I was prepared to dislike this re-boot, but I was pleasantly surprised. Then there were all the re-imaginings of the original series characters. And, seeing the actors who portrayed key characters in the original series showing up on this series. Like Bruce McGill and Michael Des Barres. It would be nice to see Elyissa Davalos, but my big question is --
Richard Dean Anderson?
I find it difficult to believe that he would refuse to participate in this series (especially considering the "I MacGyvered it" line in an episode of Stargate SG-1). Therefore, I have to inquire, has he even been asked? Or is it more that the producers cannot figure out what part to offer him? (I, personally thought it was going to be Mac's father, but that's not what happened.)
If it's the former -- why not? If it's the latter -- may I suggest Harry?
