Gate Geek – Thanks, Urgo

We interrupt my real life in the H1N1 response to bring some sad news to the Stargate family.  Dom DeLuise, talented comedian and the creator of the much-beloved character Urgo, has died at the age of 75.

Mr. DeLuise was also father to long-time Stargate director/writer Peter DeLuise and actors Michael (Colonel Danning from Wormhole Extreme) and  David (Sam’s boyfriend Pete Shanahan). 

Urgo once said, “I wanna live! I wanna experience the universe! And I wanna eat pie!”  Hopefully you’re now getting to do so.

    I’m watching his episode again right now… It’s one of my all time favorite Stargate episodes.

    That’s terribly sad. Mr. DeLuise was usually fantastic in whatever he was playing in. Tremendous loss as a comedic actor.
