Seeing how Gatecon always has a wonderful array of guests that cover many aspects of what went on to provide us as fans of Stargate with such a great viewing experience I wondered about suggesting a guest that would give us some insights into what life is like as an 'Extra'.

Bill Butt is a great guy who has appeared on Stargate Universe in a couple of episodes and SGA, as well as many other shows and movies filmed in Vancouver. He gained fame on Gateworld as the 'Balding Asian Guy' or B.A.G for short! He even signed up to Gateworld as he has a wonderful sense of humour and joined in with the light hearted banter about his role in the SGU episode 'Faith'. When he appeared again in the episode 'Visitation' a line was spoken by Rush that referred to him and the lack of hair. Even the writers on SGU joined in the tongue in cheek silliness! Forget 'Where's Wally?', spotting B.A.G in various TV shows is more fun! :P

He has some wonderful stories about his time on TV show and movie sets over the years.  :)

To quote him from his post on Gateworld.....  "so when and where is Gatecon? Who do I have to pay off to get invited, ha!! Ha!!"

I was thinking about him last week! Maybe I was channeling you. It would be great to have him come along. 😊

I was adding up all the autographs I want and I didn't see Chris Heyerdahl listed, just wondering if you're still waiting to hear from him and hoping he didn't cancel. Thanks, Kim

Amanda just tweeted that she has to back out of OzComiCon due to filming. I bet Reedpop is not happy.

She's scheduled to appear at the Stargate con in Chicago Sept 23-25 (one week after Brisbane).  So far she's still on the guest list.  Hoping she'll still make it as it's the last Stargate con in Chicago.

A very special message just received from Richard Dean Anderson, encouraging anyone who has not yet got their ticket to The Homecoming to do so
