Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I also put together my own cast lists for each series (oh crap, I never did NF) with pictures of the chosen actor. Most of them are a combination of the authors choices, my choices, and the popular choices. I think I posted a couple of them here, but they never got much of a reaction. If anyone is interested I will gladly repost them, though.

I'm really sorry, but I don't see either of those working at all.
My pick for Vaughn has been Bruce Boxleitner from Babylon 5. I'd don't really have a pick for Mueller.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

For the last few years i've pictured Charlize Theron as Mueller. I'd also say Portia de Rossi if she actually had some meat on her bones...

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

While watching a recent episode of Psych, I started to think that James Brolin might make a pretty good Vaughn.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I can't not see Vaughn as being Sean Connery c. Hunt for Red October, it's always Connery's voice I hear when I read Vaughn.

Same way I always saw Sharleen Spiteri (c. 1996) of Texas as Soleta for years until Charlies Angels came along whereupon Soleta became Lucy Lui.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

So was Hugh Cambridge based on Hugh Laurie? He seems the obvious casting choice to me. Keeping his original British accent, of course.

Sorry if this one's been done, but as CLB pointed out, there's over 1500 posts here...

KRAD, you working on anything now? Got time on your hands?

If not, I'll set aside some time tomorrow. It's gonna be a looooooong day.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Well, I just finished reading the first Vanguard book. So...

Diego Reyes: Esai Morales

Ezekial Fischer: Bill Cobbs

Cervantes Quinn: Jeff Fahey

Tim Pennington: Kevin McKidd

Anna Sandesjo: Rekha Sharma

Ming Xiong: Charles Chun

Ganz: Michael Clark Duncan


Also, for me, the quintessential Elias Vaughn would be Christopher Lee. Though, that has probably been mentioned by others in the 70+ pages of this thread that I didn't read.
