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 (SCI FI Wire).
This is some of the best news I've read in a while. I love Michael Shanks. I love Sanctuary. Michael Shanks + Sanctuary = Brilliant!
I am really curious about the episode. With a name like Penance, I have to wonder if this might have something to do with a sin Magnus committed in her past. She has a long history, and I would love to learn more about it. It would be great if Shanks was a part of that.
More realistically, Shanks will probably play a character who has done something terrible to the Abnormals and has to make amends.
