^nice choice for a Cardassian, but way too old for Dygan.
Good point. If he were a few years younger, though, he'd fit the role well.

Other contenders for Cardassians (not Dygan) include Robert Patrick, Sam Neill, Jeremy Irons and Ed Harris.

Any characters whom Emily Blunt could work well as?

^ Jeremy Irons would be perfect for Adrik Thorsen (the Federation novel).

^Jeremy Irons would indeed be a good Adrik Thorsen.

As for Dygan, how about Matthew Gray Gubler?

Could work! I've not seen him in anything, but he fits the part.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I stand corrected, gentlemen...

Javier Bardem as a Klingon or Cardassian, maybe?

Javier Bardem is too creepy for Star Trek, IMO.

How about Cristine Rose for Gell Kammemor?

^I like Rachel Weisz for Kammemor, personally, but Rose looks the part.

KRAD said he had Endgame Janeway at least partially in mind when writing the character.
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.

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.
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.....
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.
And now I really want to see one of the Protection Detail code named Duchess.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Just looking at David Mack's casting for the Vanguard series, I agree with most all of those.

Steve Buscemi as Dr. Leone is a class choice! We know from Reservoir Dogs and Armageddon he can do serious and funny all at once.

What do you guys think of Janina Gavankar as Jasminder Choudhury?

I was the one who originally suggested that in this thread back in August 2008, and you replied an hour later with "Cool, I like her look to so I think I might go ahead and change my Choudhury entry." There was a general consensus that she was a reasonably good choice.

This thread's gotten so old and enormous that I find it's a good idea to search it for any names of interest before posting. You never know when you might've forgotten a previous conversation about a given character or performer.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Yeah, I recall reading a similar post, too. But still, that actually works really well! I love that idea, gentlemen.

Okay, here's a casting subject that hasn't been discussed: what sort of voice/accent do you expect from a Breen? (One that speaks basic, not that electronic noise from DS9).

I tend to imagine some with a Russian accent.
