SG-1's Michael Shanks will guest-star in an episode of Sanctuary

Former Stargate SG-1 star Michael Shanks will appear in an episode of SCI FI's Sanctuary in its upcoming second season, Shanks' managers at JDS in Los Angeles told SCI FI Wire.

Shanks reunites with his former SG-1 co-star Amanda Tapping, who stars in and produces Sanctuary, in episode 209, entitled "Penance," which begins filming next week in Vancouver, Canada; he'll play a character named Jimmy.

Shanks will also be seen in an episode of SCI FI's upcoming Stargate Universe, reprising the role of Dr. Daniel Jackson.

Sanctuary follows the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic and always surprising Dr. Helen Magnus (Tapping), a brilliant scientist who holds the secrets of a clandestine population—a group of strange and sometimes terrifying beings that hide among humans. Along with forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), they seek to protect these threatened phenomena as well as unlock the mysteries behind their existence.

Sanctuary returns with 13 new episodes in the fall.
Michael Shanks dishes Stargate Universe, other projects

Shanks spoke exclusively with SCI FI Wire last week about his slate; following is an edited version of that interview. Stargate Universe debuts with a two-hour premiere in October on SCI FI. (Spoilers ahead!)

Michael Shanks on His Return Trip to Atlantis

Since Stargate SG-1 closed its portal, Michael Shanks has popped up on such non sci-fi shows as 24 and BRudolphurn Notice. On Sept. 26, he steps back into his sorely missed role of whimsical archaeologist Daniel Jackson to guest on Stargate: Atlantis, which ends its five-year run in January, to be resurrected in TV movie/DVD form. — Ileane Rudoplh

TV Guide: Is this two-parter your first time guesting on Atlantis?
Michael Shanks: I've never actually been on Atlantis since the pilot, but I always bugged the guys about it. My character spent seven years on the show looking for the lost city of Atlantis and they even made a gag about the fact that he was dying to go but wasn't allowed to.

TV Guide: Why is Daniel there?
Shanks: He comes to find a secret lab that contains important technology. Then a batch of unexpected villains shows up. Let's just say, Daniel has a history with them.

TV Guide: He has to work with the annoying Dr. Rodney McKay (David Hewlett.) Producer Joe Mallozzi compared the two of you to Abbott and Costello. Are you hurt? Shanks: [Laughs] The thing with David is that he's one of the fastest talkers on the planet and apparently I speak relatively quickly as well. They wrote six to eight extra pages of the episode just to compensate for the fact that they were going to be short. David's very good at the rhythmic gymnastics that's our banter. We had a lot of fun.
