I've had a few ideas since we played this the last time, so here is, finally, my list of cast choices. I've stolen, I mean borrowed a few I really liked from other people, i.e. PSGarak and in one case, Temis the Vorta (these are marked with * or **).
Eamonn Walker / backup choice: Lance Reddick*
Asia Argento* / if you can't get her, backup choices: Christina Cox, Katee Sackhoff**
John Noble* (PSGarak changed his mind, but I'm sticking to him as Odo rather than Tain)
Julian Bashir: Karim Saleh
(from BBC docudrama Hamburg Cell
David Patrick Kelly
Noah Gray-Cabey* (cast a white actress as Jennifer to make this more believable)
Elizabeth Mitchell (20 years older)... wait, can I do this? It's fantasy cast, after all. Oh, you said if it was starting now? OK.
Dianne Wiest (I'm having flashbacks of Wiest as the Evil Queen in The 10th Kingdom)
Charles Martin Smith
Grand Nagus Zek:
Michael J. Pollard
* borrowed from PSGarak
**borrowed from Temis the Vorta
I've done my homework on short Ferengi-like actors.
I've also recently realized that Christopher Meloni really has to play a Cardassian one day!! During the discussion about Oz
on the TV & Media subforum, and watching this video
, I've been reminded what a loooong, massive neck the guy has!
Not to mention a body that would great in a Cardie uniform!
Then I realized that his two best known roles have been as 1) a devoted family man & authority figure dedicated to his job, and 2) a dangerous, manipulative, charismatic, sociopathic sexual predator/murderer obsessed with making people love him... If that combination doesn't qualify one for playing Dukat, I don't know what does.
