Or Mr. T as a Vulcan....
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.
The obvious choice would be Mr T as a Klingon, or maybe a Nausicaan.

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!
I watched Zoolander last night and seeing David Bowie made me wonder if Ben Stiller would do it. Considering how much of a fan he is (and the obvious inspiration of the villain in that movie) I'd say yes

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

And Mr T as a Vulcan, , Pure Class!

Hopefully any future treks have the budget for actors such as these (although Mr. T would be cheap to get I imagine) due to the possible success (gotta be positive and hopeful) of the new film.

Otherwise, no, they couldn't afford a good cameo even from these guys.

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.

I want to see Christopher Walken as a cardassian.

He'd be damned if any Federation slopes gonna put their greasy human hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this Kanar bottle up his ass. Then when he died of Rigellian fever, he gave me the Kanar bottle. I hid this uncomfortable piece of glass up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the Kanar bottle to you.
