Actors who would have made great Star Trek aliens

Building on BigJake's "Actors who would have made great Starfleet Captains" thread idea, this thread is targeted toward actors as various aliens.

I'll start the ball rolling with Kevin Spacey as a Romulan Tal Shiar agent, Ian McKellen as a member of Vulcan High Command, Liam Neeson as a traveling El-Aurian, Alan Arkin and Dannny DeVito as a Ferengi Diplomats, and Ron Perlman as a Klingon.

Ron Perlman rocks.

Jason Isaacs, recently mentioned in the other thread, would make a fine Romulan commander.

Vincent Price would've made a memorable TOS Klingon.

Ron Perlman was so wasted in Nemesis. But then everyone was wasted in Nemesis.

Exactly. Unrecognizable and got nothing to do.

Andre Braugher would've made a hell of a Klingon.

Summer Glau or Christina Hendricks as anything they wanted
Ray Park as anything that needs to look weird and threatening.
Adam Baldwin definitely should've been Trek's first badass Vorta...

Definitely.

Perlman would have made a great Jem'Hadar/Hirogen too. Ditto Clancy Brown and the late Michael Clarke Duncan.

Vulcans/Romulans - Morena Baccarin, a young Geena Davis, Michael Wincott (fantastic voice). Contemporary James Spader could be a great snarky Vulcan.

Vorta/Ferengi - Alan Cumming, Steve Buscemi, Paul Giamatti (he'd also make an interesting Klingon. Or Neelix).

Cardassians - Chris Eccleston, Tom Hiddleston, William Fincher.

Re: Actors who would have made great Star Trek aliens

Klingon: Christopher Judge (Teal'c is like an honorary Klingon! Judge could play a passable vulcan, if he wasn't so HUGELY MUSCULAR), Adam Baldwin, Samual L Jackson, Clancey Brown, Tim Curry,Tony Amendola (Bra'tac), Jolene Blalock could have been a good Klingon

Vulcan or Romulan: Willem Dafoe, Kevin Spacey, Hugo Weaving, Christopher Meloni, Bill Mumy, Anthony Hopkins,

Cardassian: John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, Tim Curry here too, Peter Jurasik

TOS Orion Girl: Barbara Eden, Carolyn Jones

I am definitely on board for a Cardassian Tom Hiddleston.

All good ones. I especially like Christopher Judge as a Klingon and your pics for TOS Orion girls.

Re: Actors who would have made great Star Trek aliens

Nice stuff, namely Lurok´s Alan Cumming as a Vorta. That would be fun.
