Wikipedia says this about Richard Kind:

In 2006, he guest starred on Stargate Atlantis as Lucius Lavin, in the episodes "Irresistible" and "Irresponsible," making him the only actor to appear in both the original Stargate film, and in Stargate Atlantis as different characters.

Did anyone appear in both the original Stargate film, and in Stargate Atlantis as the same character? I can't think of anyone... Is it simply a misleading paragraph?

    I think that they are just making the distinction that he appeared in both, but as different characters. So that people don't get confused and assume that he plays the same character. – NominSim Nov 28 '12 at 12:30
  • @NominSim: OK - I think the language is slightly off then, since it's describing something he's the only one to do, not an isolated fact. – Lightness Races in Orbit Nov 28 '12 at 12:31

The statement is correct. Richard Kind played a scientist named Gary Meyers in the movie, and Lucius Lavin in the Pegasus galaxy in Stargate Atlantis. To my knowledge, he's the only actor that appeared in both the movie and Stargate Atlantis, regardless of role.

However, there were a few actors who appeared in both the movie and SG-1 as the same character.

French Stewart was in the original movie and played a different role in Stargate Universe.

  • It's certainly correct - it's just that it implies something else that I disagree with. And so you do :) – Lightness Races in Orbit Nov 28 '12 at 12:31
  • I'm not sure that I follow. Could you clarify your question? – Force Flow Nov 28 '12 at 13:13

    I'm not sure how. I think it's pretty clear! In my view the Wikipedia paragraph implies, with its wording, that there was some actor that played the same role in both the movie and SGA. Neither you nor I can think of one, so I will conclude that it's merely slightly misleading wording. – Lightness Races in Orbit Nov 28 '12 at 13:15

    You are basically complaining about punctuation in the Wikipedia article. I fixed it. – ThePopMachine Nov 29 '12 at 16:16
