Okay, Peter wingfield on Sanctuary was like the bestest, loveliest little surprise I could have imagined in these depressing final times of SGA. Its going to be hard filling the void that Stargate is leaving in the part of my soul dedicated to Scifi. And damn the hair, mustache the whole outfit including the thing that looks like victorian era fetish gear just works for me on all kinds of levels. He's one of my scifi gods whose still looking as hot as the first time he graced my tv screen. The other one is obviously Richard Burgi because hello! that body is psycho insane cut.
Why doesn't this man have his own show? He's awesome, methos was one of the coolest characters to hit scifi an in turn fandom ever. He's like the little black dress of crossover fic. I know people who never watched Highlander but they know about methos. Could you imagine anyone else playing that character the Peter Wingfield did? No, because just thinking about it will break your brain. Maybe I should start a campaign like "Give Peter Wingfield a show damn it" with online petitions and ads in variety. There was a cool article a few years back about how he was the quentissential everyman of scifi with the cross section of roles he's played and how well he's played them.
With the exodus of SGA the is a power vacuum in the scifi tv universe and someone has to fill the void. Why not a show with an actor that has a nice cross section of fans from across said universe?
If I were casting a show it would be the who's who of fandom's greatest It'll make for great fanfiction potential, especially in crossovers.
Peter wingfield would be my male lead (Naturally) and I don't know what everyone else would be doing but here's would I would want gracing the screen:
Gina Torres (kick ass female lead)
Katee Sackoff (villian, she was the best thing about the bionic woman revamp and she was the guest star)
Stephanie Romanov (we need more fierceness in this cast)
Callum Keith Rennie
Nathan Fillion (potential love interest of peter's character?)
Ben Browder & Christian Kane (can't have to many sexy drawls can we)
We'll need some young wipper-snapers to round things out so here's a few:
Michael Rosenbaum (he can be clyde to Katee's Bonnie or Stephanie's boytoy, I can't decide)
Summer Glau (she just rocks)
