Re: Actors you're surprised never appeared in Star Trek
I know Eddie Murphy was supposed to appear in ST IV (he would have played a college professor who sees the Klingon vessel decloak during the Super Bowl, and is the only one who believes it's real as opposed to a halftime special effect). I wonder how he would have played the role. Straight-up comedy, like he always does? Or would he dare to play it straight?
