Scott Bakula: (Talking about how he got his role of Captain Jonathon Archer) Kerry McCluggage and Gary Hart were both at Universal when I did Quantum Leap. We had a long and very good relationship. My production company was already at Paramount when they approached me. I was excited, but wanted to meet Rick Berman and Brannon Braga and read the pilot script. Once I read that and met with the guys it was kind of a no-brainer in terms of a role to play, a place to work, with great collaborators, and it would keep me at home for the next few years.
