Why Was The Actor Who Played Benjamin Sisko Replaced
 
midway through the series Benjamin Sisko's actor was replaced was there ever a reason given by the production crew?

They liked that guy from Spenser: For Hire better than the guy originally cast.

:shifty:

I liked the Sisko actor that played Hawk more.

Also, did anyone think the Sisko actor is really out there? Just listen to some of his interviews! :p

for a short period of time the second sisko wore a wig to ease viewers into the change of actor.

Bald and goatee Sisko was DEFINITELY better than the full head of hair Sisko.;)

What a difference a shaved head and goatee makes.

Avery Brooks is the only Sisko I'm aware of, who's the other?

What about the actor who had a goatee AND a head of hair? Nobody ever talks about him. :(

None of the actors who played Sisko ever had a goatee.

It was a van dyke. :)

They should get all the Siskos and all the Ziyals into one place and let them fight it out (the Ziyals are weaker so they get one extra). They could call it Clone Wars. I'm sure the OP would like that.

Speaking of heads...I have a sneaking suspicion that our favorite April Fool, StarTrekSlut, has reared its ugly head again.

Useless trivia, but THE LOO SANCTION (sequel novel to EIGER SANCTION) had a character named Van Dyke who was lesbian. Guess the real Trevanian had a little bit of Ian Fleming in him after all.

Same novel had a black bouncer named Petit Noel that Avery Brooks could have had fun playing ... till he was ultimately replaced by the other fella.
