He was also almost Picard.
You have GOT to be kidding.

I know of only one other actor who was up for Picard (Stephen Macht, i.e. General Krim from DS9). Are you seriously telling me EJO also was?
Olmos was up for the role of Picard, but turned it down, according to this recent interview on The View.

Personally, I think it would have been disastrous.
Yeah, I can't picture EJO as Picard at all. Apparently, Roddenberry also envisioned either William Campbell or someone like him as Picard, if I remember correctly. It was Bob Justman who "found" Patrick Stewart and pushed Roddenberry to cast him.

Also: Morgan Freeman as Tuvok's father. You *know* you want it.
Agreed. That would kick serious ass.
I'd rather he'd played Tuvok, actually.
