Beau Bridges and his science fiction niche
Beau Bridges seems to be in a lot of genre stuff.

That is, he is a fantasy guy. I’m temporarily going to address any science fiction that is not hard sci-fi as fantasy for the present purposes. Clearly it is a false distinction. Beau Bridges plays ‘the General’ character on Stargate SG-1. I recognized him on at least episode of the last iteration of The Outer Limits. Here he is in an RHI/Ion gig. The funny thing is that there was one point which is pretty obviously and cheerfully an homage to a moment from Star Trek III!
I love that sort of stuff. Eventually I’ll see this flick. Perhaps the same year I’ll bother to sit through a whole viewing of Hogfather.
Fantasy and science fiction are different concepts again for the rest of the purposes.
