I'm assuming there is one because Tomorrowland has the following three Stargate actors:

David Nykl(SGA-- Dr. Zalenka),

Paul McGillion (SGA-- Dr. Beckett),

and Garry Chalk (SG1-- Colonel Chekov).

Perhaps it is just that they are all filmed in the Vancouver area, but the coincidence seems bigger.

    Huh. I didn't even notice that. Didn't recognize any of those three in Tomorrowland when I saw it. And I'm a big SG fan. – BBlake Jun 2 '15 at 17:54

    i mean its been what 5+ years since the end of stargate, and these are like b/c/d tier cast members.... – Himarm Jun 2 '15 at 18:00

    Yeah you might be clutching at straws here. If it was Jack, Sam and Teal'c, maybe there could be a connection but these three are right down the list. – Daft Jun 2 '15 at 18:02

    I noticed them, too, and thought "HEY! SG Easter Egg!" But that was about it. – PiousVenom Jun 2 '15 at 18:06

    it's very common to see genre actors reappear in future genre shows, especially when they're filmed in the same area. AFAIK all three of those actors live in the Vancouver area. – KutuluMike Jun 2 '15 at 18:15

Comparing Tomorrowland and Stargate: Atlantis gets quite a long list of cast and crew the two have in common. However, since you're asking about shared actors, let's look at casting.

Corrine Clark and Jennifer Page are listed as the Casting Director on Tomorrowland, and back in 2008-2009 they worked on Stargate: Atlantis and in 2009-2011 they worked on Stargate: Universe. So they're your likely suspects for why a handful of Stargate actors ended up acting in Tomorrowland.
