My first thought too. Or Sharon Stone.
Wasn't Djimon Hounsou one of Ra's guards? I guess he was fairly unknown at time, but when I later saw the series I always felt Teal'c was a more developed riff on his character. For the time movie made, was Michael Clarke Duncan around then?
Another element I'm glad they kept from the original film to the series was the Ra leitmotif. Really distinctive and helped add to atmosphere in tv show.
