Re: People who would make convincing aliens in Trek

Just to avoid spamming the thread with lots of huge pics, I'm just going to send you over to my Trek art gallery, where you can see Jude Law, Claire Danes, Katee Sackhoff, Gina Torres and Marc Warren as various Trek aliens (these were manips done for RPG characters).

Jude Law is an Andorian chan, Katee Sackhoff is a shen, Warren is a thaan, Danes is a zhen, and Gina Torres is a Klingon.

LOL So true!



It turns you're even more right than I thought, didn't even know this until I looked up his IMDB trivia page:

An avid Star Trek fan, he named his son (born 2003) after the Star Trek: Deep Space 9 character Dax and often refers to himself as a Klingon. He once claimed during his "Part Troll" tour that his ear-mounted microphone made him resemble "a wizard in a call center" and "a Klingon motivational speaker".

I can see him as Gowron's little brother.

Re: People who would make convincing aliens in Trek

I agree that Adam Baldwin would make a great Klingon, but I'd like to see him do it as a QuchHa' - that is, a TOS Klingon. Having him be a 'normal' one would be too Jayne Cobb-ish.

The Olson twins, one klingon, one romulan. Let them play off against each other.

Romulan's are fairly slim, let the druggy twin be Romulan.

James Marsters doesn't look anything like a young Patrick Steward. But that it seems wasn't one of the qualifications for the role.

I kept getting distracted watching the Auburn-Mississippi State game yesterday because the ref looked like a young Marc Alaimo. Not kidding.

Re: People who would make convincing aliens in Trek

I can't believe I've never thought of it before, but Christopher Meloni definitely needs to play a Cardassian! I watched this Oz video recently and was reminded what a looong, muscular neck the guy has! Look at the beginning and end of the video in particular:

Re: People who would make convincing aliens in Trek

Clancy Brown screams Klingon to me. And with her foot-long neck, Morena Baccarin is perfect for a Cardassian.

With just a little makeup, Mel Gibson and his beard could easily pass for a Tellarite.

Oooh! After his iconic Spike, and his guest spots in Torchwood and Smallville, I'm convinced Marsters would be great for Trek! That would be awesome! Apparently, he is a fan, so I think he'd do it. Or so I've read.

Conan O'Brien would look good as an Andorian.

Some people who could play Ferengis (yep, shortness is a prerequisite ):
David Patrick Kelly
Charles Martin Smith
Michael J. Pollard
Rhea Perlman
Willie Garson
Frankie Muniz

here's how I cast them all in the fantasy DS9 recasting thread

I can see that. After all, aren't the Tellarites PIG descendants?
