*Miranda Kadohata-Stephanie Jacobsen

The girl from BSG:Razor who is of mixed ancestry, and Australian. I believe they have her picture on Memory Beta as an idea for the character anyhow...
She's a good choice for Kadohata (if maybe too young), but she also seems much like I picture Prynn Tenmei.


I like a lot of David Mack's choices for the Vanguard characters. (I see a few differently, though.)

Diego Reyes - Edward James Olmos
Rana Dasai - Parminder Nagra
Dr. Fisher - Morgan Freeman
Cervantes Quinn - Stanley Adams
Ming Xiong - Jet Li
Lurqual - Katherine Heigel
Ganz - Ving Rhames
Oriano D'Amato - Monica Belucci
Atish Khatami - Catherine Bell
Aledard Nassir - Ben Kingsley
Vanessa Theriault - Molly Quinn (in a few years)

I have a very specific image of Zhao Sheng in mind, but don't know of an actor who fits it - something along the lines of Chow Yun Fat crossed with Brad Pitt, but less handsome (and slightly gray at the temples).

A new photoshop of Chaves-Jacobsen as Kadohata (except the rank, it could as easily be Tenmei).

Agreed. That's impressive. It also reminds me that I should do more of mine, although I'll admit they aren't as good as that one.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Late to the party, but I've been fancasting AOS versions of TOS novel characters, and fell in love with the idea of Gina Holden as Enterprise Chief Engineer Caitlin Barry from Vulcan's Glory and The Rift.

Also, I could totally see Natalie Morales as a young Charlotte "Caliente" Chavez in Who Much...? mostly cos Wendy Watson could SO hold her own against Jim Kirk. (This particular fancasting came out of a long Livejournal thread about Noser playing "Stump the Band" with the current Enterprise senior staff.)

I've already posted this in other casting theads, but here's my Cait:

Could you put names to the faces, please? I think that's Jennifer Garner as Number One and Mark Harmon as Boyce, and you said Gina Holden (mmm, Gina Holden...) as Barry, but I don't recognize the other two women.

Really like your choice of Chapel. Is that Rosamund Pike?

For recasting Colt, I like Molly C. Quinn (who's also my choice for Vanessa Theriault; I need to watch more tv and movies).

Christopher, Robin Tunney is her Colt.

Sorry--since they other characters are from TOS, I didn't specify. But Colt = Sprague Grayden and Chapel = Rosamund Pike

Columbia: Nope, not Robin Tunney, tho in retrospect, she and Grayden could be sisters. And I originally had Jen Garner as both Number One and Chapel, but I swiftly adopted Rosamund Pike due to the insane amounts of inappropriate-for-siblings chemistry she had with Urban in Doom.

Well, actually I have it on DVD cos I like Dwayne Johnson, and there was bonus dodgy-American-accent-having Dexter Fletcher (I don't suppose there are any other Press Gang fans here?). But I only watched it again (with friends) after STXI for Karl Urban.

For Karl Urban being pretty, the Rock being insanely funny, and Rosamund Pike being awesome? Yes. Is it quality? Oh honey, HELL NO. However you're talking to someone who saw the remake of Death Race in theatres. Twice.

Ah, that would explain why she looked so familiar, I'm a big Jericho fan. I knew the face, but it's been a long enough time since I saw an episode that I didn't realize it was her.

oh, i know it ain't quality, but given the source (video game where you run around killing monsters) i think it's pretty good. i just some times think i'm the only person on the planet who liked it.
