Patrick wearing hair and little else as Oberon in an RSC performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

midway through the series Benjamin Sisko's actor was replaced was there ever a reason given by the production crew?
Because Hawk is cooler then Sisko

The difference between new Sisko and old Sisko is the difference between Samuel L. Jackson and Sherman Klump.

For Sisko, I don't know why they didn't just get the guy who played Benny Russell. I liked him. He looked a little like Gabriel Bell.

I think you're confusing them. Gabriel Bell, with hair on his head and smooth face, looked like Avery Brooks. The actor who played Benny Russel, with a goa-dyke and shave head, looked like Avery Brooks. Everyone would know that the coffee was replaced with Folgers!

Besides, I think it's universally agreed that the actor who played Jodmos would have been a better Sisko.

Ah, but the real question is: which Sisko actor was the best singer?

This thread takes me back to that Jayson thread where all the Captains wanted to kill him. I wonder which version of Sisko wanted to kill him. I'm tipping the second one because the first one was a bit of a pussy.

Re: Why Was The Actor Who Played Benjamin Sisko Replaced

Well, there was precedent for such a replacing of starring characters. The first time it happened was in the 1988-1989 when they replaced the actor who played Commander Riker in the first season with another guy in the second who had a beard.

I like the bearded Riker better. That beard defeated Locutus of Bored..I mean Borg.
