Rick Worthy, who was already a popular character actor in genre series such as "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Stargate SG-1" and even "Star Trek: Enterprise," is heading to "Heroes."

Worthy, who was last seen in a bloody mess at the hands of Adm. Adama in the series finale of "Battlestar Galactica" (he played Simon, one of the Cylon skinjobs), will take on the role of a Los Angeles cop in the NBC series that will work closely with Greg Grunberg's Matt Parkman.

He's not the only actor popping up on "Heroes" this season. Also coming on board "Heroes" this season is Robert Knepper 'T-Bag' from "Prison Break" and Madelina Zima. -- [The Hollywood Reporter]

Hollywood is a tough business, and Stargate franchise producer Joseph Mallozzi knows that. So using his popular blog, Mallozzi decided to give some of the strong guest actors in his three series over the years a little boost (and maybe some new jobs).

So who is he recommending?

First up is Michael Welch who played Young Jack in the "Stargate SG-1" episode "Fragile Balance." Right behind him is Neil Jackson who appeared in the "SG-1" episode "Prototype" and the "Stargate: Atlantis" episode "Vegas."

Jodelle Ferland also was recommended for her work as Young Adria/Harmony in the "SG-1" episode "Flesh and Blood" as well as "Harmony" from "Atlantis. Brendan Beiser was recognized for playing Tavius and Weaver in "The Tower" for "Atlantis" and "Memento Mori" for "SG-1." Reed Diamond also is getting some attention for playing Bryce Ferguson in the "SG-1" episode "Stronghold."

Also on the list are Ryan Robbins who played Ladon Radim in "Atlantis," Kari Wuhrer who played Nancy in the "Atlantis" episode "Outcast," Malcolm Scott who played Caius in "The Ties That Bind" from "SG-1," Mike Dopud who was the Bounty Hunter and Kiryk in the "SG-1" episode "Bounty" and the "Atlantis" episode "Tracker" and Reiko Aylesworth who plays Sharon in the "Stargate: Universe" episode "Life."

"All are gifted actors who would make a terrific addition to any cast," Mallozzi said. "But be warned! Snap 'em up now because I have a feeling they'll only be available for so long." -- [Stargate SG-1 Solutions]

It's Game On For SciFi Channel
'Battlestar Galactica,' 'Warehouse 13' among those featured

The soon-to-be Syfy channel is preparing to move its vastly growing media empire further into the world of online gaming, starting with some games based on some of the cable channel's favorite shows.

So far, the SciFi Channel Game Center already includes a series of "coffee break" style games such as "Frakjack" and "Star Gem," which are based on "Battlestar Galactica" and "Stargate SG-1" respectively, not to mention others that tie in with "Eureka" and "Ghost Hunters." Since its inception, the Game Center has been met with a positive reception, and according to senior vice president and general manager of Sci Fi Digital, Craig Engler, the response to these kind of games comes hand-in-hand with the genre itself.

"There is a tremendous overlap between people who enjoy the imagination-based entertainment on Sci Fi and people who play games," Engler said.

Leading this renewed charge into the digital world is "Battlestar Galactica: Cylon Combat Simulator" which will allow fans of the popular series to enter a Colonial Viper and fry some frakkin' toasters by shooting down Raiders and Baseships. Accompanying the simulator will be "Warehouse 13: Clean Up America's Attic" based on the upcoming series "Warehouse 13" that is expected to launch during the summer.

Both titles will be among 15 new adventures that will be introduced throughout the summer season and not only will provide a unique experience for fans of each franchise but will also benefit the advertisers. And, in turn, should help the network develop further programming.

"Expanding the Game Center is a natural fit not only for our audience but for our advertisers," Engler said. "By offering more casual MMOGs to our lineup, we're giving our visitors an experience that's much richer than a typical online game, but in a way that's still easily accessible from a simple browser window."
