I'm not sure who to play Burboyne 172. But the picture on the cover of Fire on High does remond me of a yound David Bowie. Something about the eyes. Though I do think the roll might be best played by a female unless you can find a feminin enough looking male with intense enough eyes.
How about John Cameron Mitchell as Burgoyne 172 from New Frontier?
Er, wait, she's always picked when it comes to androgynous characters...
