Ben has been busy with a number of projects. What surprises might he have up his sleeve?
JT Mollner has included Ben in his upcoming movie Outlaws and Angels. Ben gets to go deep into a character, so much so that Ben lost some of his hair for the role.
Ben was a presenter for two awards at the 41st Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank on June 25, 2015. He and actress Laura Vandervroot presented the awards for Best Actor (tie: Andrew Lincoln and Hugh Dancy) and Best Actress (Caitrion Balfe) in a TV Series.

[Update 06-26-2015] Ben is a character in the new Call of Duty Black Ops III video game. Check out some images on our Facebook page.
Ben is one of many sci-fi icons who participated in artist Martin Firrell's project entitled 'metascifi'. The project has interviews with the participants on 'Public conversations of social value'. You can download an iTunes Store app of the project for under three bucks.
The Adventures of RoboRex is now out on DVD in the US and UK.
Ben starred in the Syfy channel movie Dead Still by the film-making team The Booth Brothers who are known for their spooky, paranormal movies. Ben also got co-director and co-producer credits for this movie.
[Update] Ben returned to his role of prep school custodian Max Rainwater in the upcoming Where the Bad Kids Go movie due out in 2016. He was also behind the camera on this one as director. Filming started at the end of July 2014. The movie is currently in post-production.
Farscape creator Rockne O'Bannon announced that he and a team are working on the second script draft for a Farscape movie. Ben is expected to return as John Crichton, father of Deke (little D'Argo) Crichton.
On December 21, 2014, Ben guest starred in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, episode 15. It's titled Dead Woods. Be makes a short but critical appearance.
So what else is Ben gunning for in the future? Series? Movies? Variety show? Theater? Since Ben plays his career cards close to the vest, we probably won't know until we know or, as Ben always puts it, 'until the deal's in escrow'.
But Ben's career is seeing new opportunities and his current popularity, shown by the number of articles about him being on Doctor Who, may be a clue that the future holds many good things for him and his dedicated fans from Farscape and Stargate SG-1 and beyond.
