Recasting was not necessarily a big deal. Remember that one plan for ST:TMP, that very nearly could have happened, was Paul Newman and Robert Redford as Kirk and Spock (or Spock and Kirk?), and Walter Koenig guesting as Chekov's father.
I didn't know that, but I can see the logic in using movie actors for a movie, for box office draw, among other things.

Do you have a link to that, by the way? Was it really more than just a rumor?
