Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature
What do you guys think of Tzi Ma
for Admr. Nogura?
Hmm, maybe, except he's Chinese instead of Japanese. And in the Vanguard
novels, the authors have definitely written Nogura as though he were being played by the late Mako -- particularly in Storming Heaven
, where there are repeated, colorful references to his gravelly voice.
I knew about Mako for Nogura, but I was trying to go with someone who's still alive. I know this is fantasy casting, so we don't have to stick with living people, but I was trying to treat this like I was actually casting this as a TV show that would be possible to make now.
And there have been plenty of situations where people of one nationality were played a character who was another.
