Who Is This Guy??

OK who is he:


I just know he's in DS9 and I'm pretty sure he doesn't like Julian. (I've only seen up to about 2/3 of the way through season 4 so NO BIG SPOILERS!!)

Some sort of commander. Sisko doesn't appear to like him too much, either.

Not the most clear picture, but it looks like Sloan in Inquisition when he was in the Deputy Director of Intelligence role. And yeah, Bashir not liking him would be an understatement.



More clear photo, is this who you're talking about? Then yeah it's Sloan. He's something of an antagonist in the second half of DS9.

Side note: The Sloan character was originally supposed to be played by Martin Sheen. That would've been interesting.

Martin Sheen as Sloan would have been awesome.

The Illusive Man in Mass Effect is basically a more competent Sloan, and his face was modeled after Martin Sheen.

What's the source on that? That would've been... creepy awesome if Sheen could've pulled that off.

DS9 Companion book. I think it's on IMDB too, under the trivia section.

I think Sloan was perfectly cast already, didn't need marquee value.

Agreed. William Sadler played the part very well and I don't see it being played any better by Sheen.

Re: Who Is This Guy??

Sadler is a great actor, but he's not in Sheen's league. That said, I don't know what else he could've brought to the character other than name recognition.

If there is one person I think would have been better than Sadler, it's Malcolm McDowell. I think a subtle Alex-esque sociopathic element would have slid nicely over Sloane's façade.

Plus, there would be that added layer of paternal intrigue. But since it would exist solely beyond the fourth wall, it would be without the contrived, cliché silliness that usually comes a long for the ride.

I didn't recall seeing Sadler in any roles prior to this. Having an unknown in the role helped enrich the mystery of the character for me. That, plus he did a great job in that role.

Sadler was hardly an unknown.
