Larry David. Can you imagine how many interstellar incidents the social assassin would be responsible for?

Nice one. He'd likely get into an argument with the Klingons and start an interstellar war.

I've thought that Ian McShane would make a good corrupt Starfleet official.

Didn't Jason Alexander appear in an Enterprise or Voyager as an alien?
Yep. He was one of the "Think Tank" on Voyager.

Harrison Ford

Also, agreed that Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman and Tom Hanks would be great in the big chair too.

You're right! That was very funny, I see what you mean!

Seeing him now makes me want to dig up and watch Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House!

Re: Actors who would have made great Starfleet Captains

Based on his performance in "Master and Commander", gotta go with Russel Crowe.

Re: Actors who would have made great Starfleet Captains

I always felt Jon Hamm would have made a very good Captain Archer. I could easily see him sporting the ENT uniform, more easily than I could see him wear later Starfleet uniforms now that I think of it.

Edward James Olmos. He was actually offered a role a some point. I can imagine as a great captain.

You know....

Joseph-Gordon Levitt would actually make a great young captain. Perhaps even a rogue type character.

Hell, to stay with 3rd Rock, im sure John Lithgow could pull of a commanding style too.

Not really. The role he was offered was Kruge in ST III.

IIRC, either Nimoy or Harve Bennett wanted EJO for that role, but was outvoted by the other.
