Re: Trek actors in other roles

^ Sometimes it's not as important that they completely resemble the person they're portraying (Anthony Hopkins looked nothing like Nixon, and James Woods didn't much look like Rudy Giuliani either).

As for Robinson: He and Lane Smith nailed the upper class New England accent to a T. That's not an easy accent to imitate.

RIP Lane Smith, by the way.
