Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

I've thought about Daniel Dae Kim as a captain, maybe even Sulu if you wanted to go that way. I've also thought Phil Morris would excel in a role like that.

But one actor that came to mind recently was Kyle Chandler. I know some people don't want to go the white male route (personally, I don't think it matters, create a great role and have an open casting call, cast the best actor possible, don't limit your choices) but I think this man would make a great captain. If you count Early Edition and Super 8, he's done a little bit of genre work, but he's not known for it like some of the other choices are. Looking at his work on Friday Night Lights, he's great as a figure of authority but can also be relaxed and cool as well. He can say a lot of things without actually saying a word. And he's an Emmy winner, that doesn't hurt in publicity...
