Re: Who Would You Cast As Captain Picard In A New Series or Movie?

Michael Fassbender or James McAvoy come to mind.

Tom Hardy, perhaps.

I'd really rather have another crew than yet another reboot. But really Hollywood seems to be in a reboot decade where instead of coming up with anything original they just recycle old characters and plots.
Maybe they'll try after the reboot Trek with Kirk? They better get a hell of an actor for Picard and Data though. It will be tough.

Hmm... Fassbender would be an interesting choice. Mind you, why not go French and have Jean Dujardin (The Artist) as Jean-Luc Picard? That'd solve the French issue.

Never considered Michael Fassbender. He could work... or he could be a great Tomalak opposite of McAvoy's Picard.

I meant play Picard as he appears in the ST:TNG series.
I'd like to see Hardy play Picard in a Stargazer movie.

Impossbile. Picard is one of the few characters that I think is impossible to recast with a new actor.

Yes, Patrick Stewart was THAT good.
As a die hard trekkie I had no problem with re-casting the role of Kirk and Spock et al. But the thought of another playing Picard is tantamount to blaspheme!

And I grew up on the original series in the 70s!

Re: Who Would You Cast As Captain Picard In A New Series or Movie?

Depends whether this is meant to be an absolute reboot, a quasi-reboot like the current movies are to TOS or a prequel/ sequel to TNG and the movies.

If they want someone who resembles Stewart, Hardy has to be the obvious choice, even though I never found him that convincing as a Picard clone in Nemesis. James Marsters might be an interesting choice. Kevin McKidd might also fit the bill.

If they're after someone who is not really physically like Stewart but brings similar authority and presence, then the likes of James Purefoy, Ciaran Hinds or Jean Reno would also work.

He's perfect for ALL the roles, particularly the villains:

I see him as a rival Vulcan, competing with Spock behind a veneer of calm.

Re: Who Would You Cast As Captain Picard In A New Series or Movie?

I'm generally of the belief that actors don't have a monopoly on a character. Admittedly, it's a tall order to play a role someone continuously inhabited for 15 years, but not impossible. Technically Patrick played Picard more than Shatner played Kirk, but the latter actor was associated with his role far longer, and they rebooted HIM.

Not sure TNG has the public recognition for them to ever attempt a JJ Abrams-style reboot, but I could see a fan-made adaptation in the style of "New Voyages".

Considering the recent trend, especially in the movies to make Trek characters into action heroes...

Brice de Nice as Picard? No, just no.



How about Tom Hiddleston?
Sure, physically he's not very close but anyone that can nail the following speech (without hamming it up) can do Picard:
