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.
It wouldn't surprise me... if the Blade 2 commentary is anything to go by he was going to be a vampire...

DeVito as a Ferengi... I don't know what his asking price is, but I would have loved to see it. Though he'd likely be too recognisable beside the rest of the cast

Well, if they got Iggy Pop as a Vorta...

For the most unexpected, how about DeVito as an Orion slave girl?

Does Danny DeVito even like Star Trek?

Well, he certainly has the height factor working in his favor. I don't know, I think it would take seeing him in costume/in character to see if he would make a good Ferengi or not. He's such a recognizable actor. It could be difficult to suspend disbelief.

It doesn't matter if he likes Star Trek or not. An acting job is an acting job.

As soon as I read that name I just imagined him stealing Molly resulting in Miles and Julian having to search through a confusing planet to find her.

Perhaps, but I'd think that someone of his "caliber" would need to like trek to tolerate the Tellarite make up.

Naw. He'd just have to tolerate the money they'd be giving him.

Well, are there any other famous Trekkies who you can see donning alien make up? Tom Hanks was up for the Zefram Cochrane role in FC, and is a big Trekkie.

Bowie, as mentioned above, is another great choice. He already looks alien enough (and has played aliens in the past), so he wouldn't have to even wear make up! LOL!

How about he play a Ferengi alongside Arnie who is a Klingon. Star Trek XII-Twins! Dr Soongs genetic experiments go wrong, hilarity ensures.

I feel wrong for saying this - but I'd pay to see that.

Mr. T would be a very conflicted Vulcan. How would he reconsile living a life free of emotion when his defining characteristic is the pity he feels for fools.

It's very tragic.
