Stargate Atlantis fans are familiar with Paul McGillion who plays doctor Carson Beckett on the series. It seems his fan base is indeed mighty. After doctor Beckett was written out of season 3 of Stargate Atlantis, his fans launched the “Save Carson Beckett” campaign and successfully convinced producers to write him back into season 4 as a recurring guest star. His fans now have their eyes on McGillion playing a young Montgomery Scott.

Well, Beckett fans may get their wish. McGillion has confirmed that he has indeed auditioned for the role. It’s always fun to see fans get their way.
