Rear Admiral
Picardo on 'Stargate: Atlantis'

After playing a holographic doctor, the leadership post on Stargate: Atlantis should be a piece of cake for Robert Picardo.

As reported by SyFy Portal, Picardo is ready for the challenge of taking on the role. "I've never enjoyed the challenge of playing someone who is one way happy with the way he is and not about to try to change or to grow," said Picardo. "I think that that's an appealing thing for an audience to see a character that wants to reinvent himself, who realizes what his character flaws are, what his weaknesses are, and wants to try to overcome them. So that's the part that I'm most enjoying."

Picardo relishes the thought of playing a character in transition. "He clearly wanted it (the leadership position on 'Stargate: Atlantis). I can tell by how they're writing the character. This is something that he wanted very much to prove himself in. And from an actor's perspective, it's fun to play characters that are trying to reinvent themselves."

Woolsey will premiere as the head of the Atlantis expedition when the fifth season of the series airs later this year.

I think he'll do great and I wish him well. I'm looking forward to Season 5 of Stargate Atlantis.

If the writers do something interesting with the character, it will be fun seeing Picardo in the role. But if they're just going to let the guy stagnate at the cliche level he's currently at, it will just be frustrating.
