So I’ve started the second season of Motive which is currently airing on CTV, the premiere episode of this season was Raw Deal which as usual featured a number of former Stargate actors in starring and recurring roles as well a notable guest star. So as usual Louis Ferreira stars in the show as Detective Oscar Vega and his boss Boyd Bloom is played by Roger Cross with Brendan Penny as Det. Brian Lucas. A guest star this week was the one and only Tom McBeath who played Dave Chissolm and I’m sure it’s not just me but I also look for familiar names who have worked behind the camera and in this case John G. Lenic who is the shows producer.

I watched the season finale of Motive yesterday which starred Amanda Tapping. She wasn’t one of the identified players in the story (the show tells you who the victim and murderer are) but it was an excellent role and performance plus some good makeup work to age her where appropriate. Motive is now being aired in the US on ABC and comes to the UK on the  13th June at nine o’clock on Universal.

I’ve just watched the episode “Ruthless” the twelfth episode of the first season of Motive a show that has finished it’s run in Canada but is now airing in the US and the UK.

In tonight’s episode there are quite a few guest actors who have appeared in various Stargate shows not counting any of the regular cast of Motive so I wonder how many you recognise and do you know the Stargate episodes they were in:)

I’m catching up on my Motive the hit Canadian crime drama and the episode I watched “Brute Force” starred Adrian Holmes the Welsh born actor who is a well recognised name in both movies and television. Adrian plays Mark ‘Machine’ Mason the victim in this episode of Motive and as is the style we see him in flashback looking good in and out of the boxing ring which is no surprise given it’s a passion of  his. Adrian can be seen in the upcoming Elysium and Debug and had recent guest roles on Arrow, Cult and further back two episodes of Stargate SG1.

It was great to see Alessandro Juliani back on the small screen last night  in a decent guest role in “Framed” the April 4th episode of Motive. He played a gallery owner (Serge Bisson) who was neither the victim or the killer of this story but for a small role he looked good and gave a nice performance.
Alessandro is perhaps best known for playing Felix Gaeta in Battlestar Galactica but he also guest starred in the Stargate SG1 episode “Scorched Earth” and “Moebius 1&2” as well as a recurring role on Smallville.

Peter Kelamis guest starred as Jack Carlin in the episode “Against All Odds” the fourth outing for the new Canadian crime drama Motive which is currently airing on CTV. The series identifies both the victim and the killer before any crime happens and the show follows the detectives as they piece together the circumstances and ultimately the motive. I wasn’t that impressed with the series premiere but the three episodes since have been excellent.

Peter played Dr Adam Brody in Stargate Universe and made two appearances in Stargate SG1 as well as doing voice work and stand up comedy.

I watched the premiere episode “Creeping Tom” of the new Canadian crime drama Motive the other day mainly it has to be said for Louis Ferreira but I also saw Roger R Cross so that’s two former Stargate actors for the price of one in the show:)
