Baltimore, Maryland (WiredPRNews.com) Heralding Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell as the “Only Real Choice,” fans of the classic television series, “Quantum Leap” (QL) are rolling out a direct-mail postcard campaign to press the writer, prospective studio, and yet-to-be-named producer of the movie to feature Bakula and Stockwell as the much-loved characters they originated on television.
The postcards state that “the very people who kept the show alive during its TV run” want Scott Bakula as Sam Beckett, and Dean Stockwell as Al Calavicci to play prominent roles in any QL movie.
Emphasizing that QL is synonymous with the characters of Sam and Al, which are in turn synonymous with Bakula and Stockwell, the postcards assert that part of QL’s timeless and enduring appeal is due to the outstanding performances of these two actors.
In a play on one of QL’s themes, the postcards affirm that fans want “God, Time, Fate, or Whatever” to know that the authentic Sam Beckett (Bakula) and Al Calavicci (Stockwell) need to play featured roles in this movie venture.
Addressed postcards and messages that likeminded fans may print, sign and mail can be found at the following link:
An online petition that similarly exhorts the writer/producer of the proposed QL film to designate significant roles for Bakula and Stockwell in the movie and allow them to reprise their characters, Sam Beckett and Al Calavicci, is located at this link:
