I haven't read it yet but something that struck me watching the Cast Reunion, Wil Weaton could pull off a new Riker in the Abrams-verse. It's not going to happen, but he does kind of look like a young Johnathon Frakes now.
I think he'd be too recognizable, especially to all us fans, as Wesley Crusher to ever cast him as Will Riker. Likewise, Wil Wheaton is now the age that Frakes was during TNG's season 6, so hardly a "young Jonathan Frakes." That's back when everyone started making fun of him for gaining weight.
