Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Yeah, I'm with Marco on this one: Roger R. Cross looks like he's far more capable of kicking some ass and taking some names than Michael Boatman. And damn, man, he was just frickin' cool on 24....

Yeah, Cross would be a great Bowers. I even used him as Bowers for my DS9R cast list I made a couple months ago, although I'll admit I did get that from checking out this thread.

As for Jesse L. Martin, I've actually pictured him as Jaza myself.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Ok, I'll have to remember that when I put my Titan cast list together. I haven't actually seen him in anything yet though, so I'm probably gonna stick with Martin at least until that changes.

Phil is my pick for Taran'atar (simply because his performance as Remata'klan always impressed the heck out of me).

Honestly, I'm sticking with Michael Boatman as Bowers, especially since I got to meet him tonight.
I'd never seen his picture before, but Boatman looks exactly as I've always pictured Bowers.

My choice for Ra-Havreii is James Callis (Galactica's Gaius Baltar).
Now that would make an interesting Photomanip!

I'd be fascinated to see our Giaus as a Efrosian, I just can't seem to visualize him with a Fu Manchu moustache, although An albino Nicholas Cage... hmnn

Despite the proclivities of Trek hairstylists, there's no reason to assume that every member of an entire species would wear their hair in exactly the same way.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Hmmm, I can't visualise Hounsou as Jaza. I think the characters more Shemar Moore or a younger Phil Morris. Morris feels too old though and Moore looks too young but Moore is more my choice.

I agree with you that Moore could work.

What about Jamie Bamber for Ken Norellis??

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Bamber seems too old for Norellis, to me at least.

Bamber also seems way too cool and smart for Kent Norellis. Norellis is kind of a doofus. How about, ohh, the guy who plays Fargo on Eureka?
