Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Well, not for yourself. But try to think of all the people that like to watch you perform!

Getting back to the topic at hand, while tying it to current events: I'm reading Final Frontier right now, and it makes me wonder what it'd be like if Captain April were in the upcoming Trek movie. I have Robert Shaw firmly cast as April, but he couldn't play the part in real life. So, how about some speculation as to a contemporary actor that would be a good fit for Captain April, as portrayed in Final Frontier and his other Trek lit appearances?
Strangely enough, I've always envisioned Michael Palin as playing April.

(as for Sybok: Sean Connery was originally to play the role. I wonder how different THAT would have been...)
