I would have had Shinzon played by Patrick Stewart and had him the same age as Picard.
A lot of people say that, but I just can't imagine it being anything other than dismal. But then. I like Tom Hardy in the role.
Why can Brent Spiner have two roles as good guy and bad guy in the series, but with Stewart it would suddenly be dismal?
Because of the nature of Spiner's characters.

Not to mention... that Spiner's already playing two characters, would just make it an eye-roller if another actor did the same thing in the same movie.

Would have ditched the awful B4 subplot anyway, so no problems with two Picards for me.

Man, it would have SUCKED if B4 teamed up with Thomas Riker.

Re: What did you like about Nemesis?

I'd also say the Picard-Shinzon dynamic works better with Shinzon visually younger than Picard. There's almost a father and son nature to that, and two Patrick Stewarts doing that would have felt awful, no matter how good an actor he is.

Re: What did you like about Nemesis?

I’m not sure if this is quite relevant or what the OP had in mind but seen as it was shot an even had all the cg work in place I’m going to say that for me possibly the best scene in Nemesis was the cut ending, with the new first officer. Like FF is bad but has the great character moment with the three camping this where the film felt like tng to me.
For one it felt like a much more upbeat ending to the standard one. Number two Picard felt like Picard, to me he was a bit off in all the movies but this one most of all but his face when the xo calls him Jean-luc even when its stated that it was a leaving prank by will really reminded me of the stern faced captain I’d grown to love through the series.
