James, if you read this, THANK YOU for your hard work and love of ST. I will always cherish your episodes and behind the scenes videos and video taped conventions. Your efforts have shown a lot of people what can be done. Wishing you the best of luck with your CE brand and productions. I am also a big fan of your WWW work and hope to see the first episode soon.

He gets PAID to be on stage as Elvis. Is there something about doing it for fun that's not clear? I'm sorry the idiots have gone after him and killed the fun.
Why are you carping on my response? I was merely saying as a professional entertainer he should understand there are always a few rude people out there and that shouldn't stop him from doing something he wants to do.

You are a riot. Why are you carping at my response to your original carping? He didn't announce himself to this board... another person put themselves up to do that, clearly without his consent. They didn't have to pay for what they did... he had to pay for it. If I advertise, I have to expect responses to my ads. He didn't advertise.

Riot? Nah, I'm much more of a fracas or a donneybrook, but thanks for noticing.

Re: James Cawley returns to NV as Kirk!

I don't post very often on these boards, and my opinion doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things, but I'd just like to say that I hope Mr Cawley does do this fan film.

Firstly, because it seems as though he wanted to and if he wanted to then he should, simple as, regardless of what a few negatively minded people on a forum say. The motivation for doing any fan project should be one's own desire to do it, and no higher motivation is needed.

Secondly, because he's earned it. I'm given to understand that he's spent many thousands of hours, and many thousands of dollars, to make something for fans to enjoy. As one of those fans, I can honestly say he's succeeded, at least in entertaining me, and I'm certain in entertaining others as well. I think if he wants to do one more episode as Kirk, he should, and frankly let the negative people be damned.

You've earned one more stint in the Captain's chair sir, and this fan at least would be more than happy to see it.

Re: James Cawley returns to NV as Kirk!

I'm with Maurice on this. Being a stage actor myself I'd assume, Mr. Cawley knows how to handle a live audience. Of course, there's almost never a boo amongst them - more some kind of less applause. The negative critics voice themselves afterwards - or in advance - through the media, as always. So nothing new there for each of us.

I would ask you, Mr. Cawley, or better, urge you to do YOUR thing. If you wish to have fun with your friends during shooting days - and in a role YOU defined for NV/P2 - why should you listen to ANYONE? Do it, have fun, we'll watch! Don't let your dreams or wishes be destroyed by one or two negative voices out here, in the forum djungle? You KNOW, 99% of your viewers like or LOVE what you do for us. So - be it!

And why there even is a discussion about about "Competition" looses me completely. IDIC on fan film levels. Some like it, some don't. That there have been made mistakes regarding getting along with each other is something that has happened before, might happen again in the future - that's human nature!

When there's a forum, there'll always be a troll!

Do it, James! You're not done playing Captain Kirk, yet! I believe in you as you should believe in your dream!

Judging from the OP's signature, I suspect James is now looking for a new assistant.

Re: James Cawley returns to NV as Kirk!

I was really excited about this news until I made it to the second page. I quite liked Mr. Cawley's portrayal of Kirk and was looking forward to one more episode with him. People on this forum are so critical. :/
