How 'bout Gary Sinease?

Nothing like Lieutenant Dan to rise up and save the day!

Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

Gonna jump right in...

Dennis Haysbert is the epitome of a Captain, for me. When I was obsessed with BSG, I photoshopped him as an Admiral for a small tv movie script I was working on...



He bellows authority! As does Angela Bassett and if they ever reboot Voyager, she'd be my first pick.

Anyone thought of Olivia Williams? If you've ever seen her in 'Dollhouse,' you'll know she can be commanding, ruthless, and completely vulnerable all in one scene.

That make me crack up!

Haysbert seems much more the Star Trek type than BSG.

I agree. At the time I was looking for someone who could be commanding but was ultimately different than Adama. But yeah, he would fit perfectly within the Star Trek universe somewhere.

I'd love to see Famke Janssen in the Captain's chair, or at least as an XO. Her performance in Nip/Tuck was killer.

Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

I'd like to see Catherine Bell in the role. I really liked David Mack's "casting" of her as Khatami.

I think Lena Headey could carry the role well.

Anyone else think Kurt Russel could pull it off? He doesn't seem that busy lately.

Then again... ::fastens up his bunker gear:: ... I'd love to see them do a female captain well this time.

Gillian Anderson. I know, I know...she's already done an iconic character. But man, she would make a kick-ass Captain.

Re: Who would you want to play the captain in Trek series 6

Read the entire thread and unfortunately I don't have a clue who half the suggestions are (Im English so don't get to watch too much US TV).

I do however know a few British actors who I believe would make a decent captain in any new Star Trek series. If you are American I doubt you will have heard of many, most have evil (posh) accents.

My suggestions are as follows with accent in brackets: Laurence Fox (posh), James McAvoy (Scottish, posh, northern), Paul Bettany (posh), Damian Lewis (any), Catherine Bell (not sure)

Also, I think US actress Jennifer Carpenter would make a good captain.

If we are going for comedy captain then Brian Blessed every time, failing that Hugh Laurie using his 'Prince George' accent from Blackadder III.

I came here to say this. But James Earl Jones should really be an admiral.

EDIT: ACK! I can't believe I actually replied to myself (Kitsune was me before that account was closed). I'm so embarrassed

^ That's funny though. Funnier still, you're probably the only one who would have realised it! You would've got away for it if it wasn't for your pesky self!

I also reckon Peter Mensah would make a good captain.
