CASTING: The Star Trek Lookalikes Directory
 
There are several known star Trek lookalike artists around the world, some, granted, are not actors, but many could and have played their respective roles on screen.

While I love shows like Hidden Frontier which feature brand new characters, it's always fun every once in a while to catch up with old friends. I have decided to leave out the regular casts of New Voyages/Phase II and Star Trek Continues

Here are just a few:

Jeff Trusk as [older] Captain Kirk - http://www.jtrusk.com/ - quite well-known, has made a few TV appearances including Jay Len's Tonight Show alongside Shatner himself. Was mooted to appear as Kirk's father in a German film based on Diane Carey's 'Final Frontier, but the project seems to have been abandoned

'Vulcan Willi' - http://www.der-deutsche-spock.de/index_en.htm - German Ninoy lookalike; played Spock in the abandined 'Das Vermachtnis' fanfilm, plus Borgwar3: Atlantis as another Vulcan captain in 1998

Spock Vegas - http://www.gigsalad.com/spock_vegas_las_vegas - Dunno if he can act but he is very tall and the resemblance is definitely there.

Carl Sheldon as [older] Scotty - www.youtube.com/user/einstein8395 - breaking my rule slightly, Carl will be appearing in Phase II: The Holiest Thing.

Giles Aston as Jean-Luc Picard - www.jeanlucpicard.com/ - played the part in Star Trek: Intrepid's upcoming 'The Stone Unturned' and another... 'parody'. He also works with Barron Toller as Sisko

Clynell Jackson as Ben Sisko - http://www.hiddenfrontier.com/episodes/ODY300.php - not a lookalike as such, but he gave a very good portrayal in Star Trek: Odyssey.

http://www.lookalikes.net/tv-celebri...lookalike.html - this has a few people including Seven of Nine.

There's bound to be more out there, I've seen cosplayers do good Data and Worf

Giles is a really fun, interesting, and likeable guy. And boy, can he party.

Interestingly, he's a lot nearer Frakes' height than Stewart's, so his Picard is a lot taller than you'd expect.
