for some reason I kept seeing Bruce Greenwood as Sonek Pran in A Singular Destiny
he was superbly cast as Pike so maybe that's why he stuck with me for Sonek . . .

Yeah, Sonek Pran is your old hippie grandfather who did a lot of LDS in the 60s.

I tend to imagine Ron Glass as Sonek Pran, actually

For Sonak Pran, I'd go with Earle Hyman who played Cliff's father on The Cosby Show.
Greenwood's an excellent actor, but he's a bit too -- I dunno, sonorous? -- to be Pran. Pran's a bit more loose and freewheeling. I can see either Glass or Hyman in the role with little difficulty -- though, again, the template for the character is Arlo.
