Now. What do we do about Councillors T'Latrek and Bera chim Gleer...?
Gleer, the way I wrote him at least, was patterned to some extent after Senator Bob Rumson, as played by Richard Dreyfuss in The American President
, so that might work.
As for T'Latrek, I was thinking Dame Judi Dench.
While we're doing councillors, Matthew Mazibuko was always intended to be played by Zakes Mokae.
