General O'Neill Will Return

I was expecting Richard Dean Anderson to make an appearence as Major General Jack O'Neill in the series finale of Stargate SG-1 recently, but it didn't happen.

MGM just announced however that he will return in the upcoming DVD movie Stargate: Continuum. Anderson will join cast members Ben Browder and Amanda Tapping in shooting on location in the sub-zero climate of the Arctic, where the production is working in collaboration with the U.S. Navy's Applied Physics Laboratory Ice Station during this week.

"We're thrilled to have Richard join us for Stargate: Continuum," Brad Wright, co-creator of the Stargate franchise and writer/executive producer, said in a statement. "As Jack O'Neill, Richard brings both a sense of history and familiarity to the continuing adventures of the Stargate team. And we all recognize his value as the much-loved hero among the fan base."

Translation of Brad Wrights statement ( Courtesy of the oxford dictionary of Hollywood Bullshit/English for beginners)
" Oh thank god , this meagre Cameo allows us to somehow claim that this is the same Stargate that you all used to know and love instead of the Farscape refugee camp it has become!
Richard not only brings a sense of History to this production but also the allure of getting all those fans to actually buy this on dvd so I can go and buy that second holiday home in Fiji!

Come now Vaughan. Surely a soon-to-be-Hollywood man like yourself doesn't have to resort to a dictionary for Hollywood Producer's Bullshit. I'm unimpressed.
