Danny DeVito as a Ferengi. Would've been AWESOME! Still probable?

How in the wide, wide world of sports did TPTB&B miss that one

Whether playing a Ferengi on TNG, DS9, V'GER, in one of the ST films, or all of those, it wouldn't matter

Danny DeVito is such an obvious must-cast as a Ferengi who'd think TPTB&B would blow that

pprtunity


Here's hoping Trek 11 is a $ma$h Then, in Trek 12 &/or a new Trek series, if J.J. Abrams &/or whoever TPTB are, have Ferengi, they'll have The Golden Opportunity to make up for the huge mistake of not having cast DeVito as a Ferengi in the past

Seriously, makers of STAR TREK

How could you miss, blow THAT?

In addition to Danny DeVito, I think Gene Hackman would make great casting as a Ferengi also

If Danny DeVito ever did a Trek film, he would better cast as a Tellarite. He already has the rough voice and is great with attitude (anyone remember Louis DePalma?)

heheheheh...

I'd like to see him as a Vulcan or a Klingon. Go against the expected!

Why the overkill on the smileys and tags?

Take it easy. I'm sure there are trekkies who think the same about Mel Gibson, Britney Spears, Anne Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson. Seriously, one would think Michael Jackson would be natural at playing an alien.

In your post, you have a shitload of smileys, several of which are irritatingly mixed into your words. Also, you have a lot of, a few of which make no sense in connect to your post.

Funnily enough, I remember there was a rumour going round at the time of FC's production, that Michael Jackson would be playing a Klingon in the then upcoming film. I almost believed it, too. I can picture MJ as a Klingon.

Thanks for the tip(s) Broccoli

I figured if TrekBBS has these things available for we aficionados to use, why not make good use of themAs we should yes?

Why let all those smileys & tag limits go to waste sitting unused up in them thar hills?

Where's the fun, &/or the point, in that?

Now that the issue(s) of alleged smiley/tag over-application has been addressed & is now water under the bridge:

Broccoli, do you have siblings named Spinach, Kale, Brussels Sprouts, & Corn?

I'll ask about who your relatives are another time

It's funny you should say that, since Jacko had a cameo in 'Men in Black 2' where he was supposed to be playing an alien agent of the shadowy government organization...

I'd rather see Joe Pesci as a Ferengi. Or Mr. T as a Vulcan....

I second Mr DeVito as a Tellarite. We never see enough of those lads.

And Mr T as a Vulcan, , Pure Class!
