Wait, you mean that wasn't Taye Diggs? Next, you're gonna tell me that it wasn't actually Katherine Hepburn playing Janeway.

I may or may not get shot for this but here goes (Titan Cast):

Cmdr. Tuvok: Tim Russ

Wait, Tim Russ...Tim Russ . . . that's the guy who played the security guard (and later the FBI agent) on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, right? I don't think he'd be quite right for an unemotional Vulcan...how about Taye Diggs?

(For those who haven't seen Equilibrium, this is a joke about how, in that movie, where everybody's supposed to be devoid of emotion, Diggs is grinning ear to ear in practically every scene.)
Oh well, I guess a joke is never funny if you have to explain it. Ah, it was worth a try.
No, no, I got it. One of my few problems with that movie.

Agreed. Aside from that, I thought it was really great; great enough to force myself to ignore Digg's constant grinning. I just wonder, didn't the director or anybody notice this?
Anyway, don't want to get off-topic. Taye Diggs as a Vulcan.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Hi All

Is there anyway that I could find out what the writers have stated in this post without having to take my whole weekend to read all the posts.

I am just curious to see what are the images they have in mind for any characters. :thumbsup:

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Well, I don't know about this thread, but if you go to David Mack's website, in his "Harbinger" annotations, he's got the fantasy casting for that.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Maybe you should change the display type to threaded (there's a button on the right under the quick reply box). Normally this display type is crap IMO but if you search for posts by individual user it should be the better one.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Some random suggestions...

Christine Vale:
KRAD already picked Katee Sackhoff and I completely agree. She would fit perfectly. Although I'm having a bit of trouble imagining her with black hair.

Nan Bacco: I can't help but picture future Admiral Janeway from Voyagers "Endgame", everytime I read AOTF. Don't ask me why.

Ranul Keru: How about Gerard Butler from the upcoming "300"?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Hey, I can understand that. I haven't read AotF, but I also do tend to typecast characters from Star Trek or other SF when I'm reading Trek books. Don't know why, it just seems to work out that way.

Very nice. I tried to cut and paste Katee Sackhoff head onto a Starfleet uniform with Photoshop awhile back, but I couldn't find any matching angles so I gave up.
