Who Would You Cast As Captain Picard In A New Series or Movie?
 
Let's say you have a new Star Trek series or a movie sometime in the next ten years that has some kind of flashback or flashforward to the era of Captain Picard aboard the Enterprise-D.

Assume you had to get a new actor to portray Picard of that era.

Who would you suggest?

Tom Hardy might be a logical choice.

Dame Judi Dench, perfect choice.

She has the acting skill and gravitas to pull off the role.

Jason Isaacs.

Not only a logical choice, but a pretty damn good one. The man can definitely act and has box office appeal.

Though I'm not sure how I'd feel about a Picard with hair. :eek:

My immediate thought too.

Ditto. I mean, the guy basically has already played Picard... albeit an evil clone.

He simply needs to master the Picard Speech. :lol:

Alan Rickman.

Another vote for Tom Hardy. I've been thinking about this too and he seems like the logical choice indeed.

Tom Hardy, or... James McAvoy.

I meant play Picard as he appears in the ST:TNG series.

Sir, Patrick Stewart, CGI him like they did they did in X3 and Wolverine

Impossbile. Picard is one of the few characters that I think is impossible to recast with a new actor.

Yes, Patrick Stewart was THAT good. ;)

I'd really rather have another crew than yet another reboot. But really Hollywood seems to be in a reboot decade where instead of coming up with anything original they just recycle old characters and plots.
