Ben has been busy these past few months with a number of projects. What other surprise roles might he have up his sleeve?
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.
[Update] At the Phoenix Fan Fest in December 2014, Ben mentioned he was working on a project that would keep him young forever. He's under a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) not to say what the project is. Ben gave further info about his project - a video game. It's still 'top-secret' so he could only say it's a video game.
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 Bad Kids Go 2 Hell movie due out in 2015. 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.
