Nothing against Tim Russ, but I never understood why the VGR producers didn't think any of the older African-American actors they looked at were suitable for the part. There were and are lots of great actors who could've fit the bill. Imagine Roscoe Lee Browne as Tuvok, for instance. That would've been something.
Perhaps Berman/Paramount had a hope that this crew would make it to the big screen, so they wanted younger-ish actors?
