For a few years in the '90s Helen Mirren was renowned for getting naked in everything she was in. That'd be quite a Trek story if she played Bacco.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Not that I want to recast this one, but just given how much he's been used in the novels of late... is there anyone who could fill in as Tomalak? No one could ever replace Andreas Katsulas, and I would never even consider recasting G'Kar, but Tomalak isn't quite as iconic, and someone might be able to take over the role...

She's not even that far off from the shot of Bacco on the cover of Articles, even if it does remind me more of Admiral Janeway from "Endgame."
Other than Helen Mirren I couldn't think of any other fit old woman when I read Articles - other than Admiral Janeway. And to this day, it's elder Janeway I picture in the role.
If I am not mistaken, I think Bacco was written with Kathy Bates in mind and even if I am incorrect, Kathy Bates is the perfect choice for Bacco.

No, the first couple of times Bates was suggested in this thread, Keith said she wouldn't have been his first choice, but she could do the role justice. So he definitely didn't have her in mind. Keith has also said earlier in this thread that the physical and verbal template, and namesake, for Nan Bacco was his great-grandmother.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

There's not a single thing about Bacco that I would ever associate with Kathy Bates...

I think Kathy Bates has a lot of the same kind of sass, the same kind of down-to-Earth vibe, the same kind of assertiveness, that I think of Bacco as having.

I never said any such thing ever in my entire life ever. I never even thought about such a thing. Trust me, on the list of Things I Was Thinking About While Developing Nan Bacco, elder Janeway wouldn't crack the Top 10,000 of that list.

You are mistaken, as Christopher said, though I think Bates could do the role. So could Helen Mirren, but that's mainly because I'm fairly certain Helen Mirren can do anything.

Jessica Walter? Interesting. Not quite right, but not bad, either.....

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'm still going with Leslie Hendrix as Bacco. And also as the Klingon doctor, B'Oraq.

Jessica Walter definitely brings a more patrician attitude to the roles I've seen her in than I'd associate with Nan Bacco, but I was thinking about her in terms of her wit, her biting sarcasm, and her air of being in charge.

My apologies, then. I very definitely recall somewhere years ago seeing (either in a thread here or an interview somewhere) a short list of influences for Nan Bacco, "part this person, part that person, and a dash of Admiral Janeway," and I thought for sure it came from you.

This is a different character, but I can sort of see Wes Studi as Glinn Dygan!

^nice choice for a Cardassian, but way too old for Dygan.
