I can already see the complaints about nuData now....

"His skin is too gold! Data's skin was never gold! OMG did they even WATCH Next Gen?!?"

"He's too emotional!"
LOL

There's something in Mr. Fassbender that gives me the creeps (he reminds me of Ryan Gosling in Drive) something in their eyes, their faces that makes them appear psychopaths. On the contrary, Data was a naive android who couldn't behave badly nor had negative thoughts or attitudes, he was noble. So my answer is no, this Fassbender actor could not play Data in Star Trek because he's contrary to the spirit of Data.
lol. hes an actor. he acts. he simply acted like that in Prometheus. that was the point. the fact that he gave you this feeling says a lot about his ability. he could just as easily play the opposite.

Data should have been recast in Nemesis IMO.

Alan Tudyk is the only guy out there, that I can think of, with anywhere near the right demeanor & skill to capture the essence of Data as we know him.
Tudyk did a good job as Sonny in I, Robot. It's a cgi movement & vocal performance only, but he was quite effective.

I'd rather have a fully CGI young Brent Spiner like in Tron Legacy.
You know, the uncanny valley-ness that would cause would actually work and make him seem less like a human in android makeup.

At this point in movie tech, they should recast him as a cgi. The next best thing of a real android.

Lore should not look exactly like him and should be played by Mikkel Boe Følsgaard.

Re: If ever a Data recast...

The Lore/Data look alike situation did create storytelling opprotunities for them to impersonate each other, and gave Spiner a dual role to play. I think it worked out well.
It occured to me recently that Data could show up in the new movies, someone could find him earlier. I think it would be tricky to do well, but I'd be excited to have Data around for at least one movie.

Great characters by themselves are great storytelling oppurtunities.

Re: If ever a Data recast...

Data should've been a Stan Winston puppet, right from the start. Molded after Brent Spiner, voiced by Brent and stood-in-for by Brent, when walking, or doing anything complicated, that the puppet couldn't really get away with. Brent never would've had to be dipped in gold every day, for hours on end, and he could've still continued to star as Dr. Soong and other characters. And Brent's place in STAR TREK's history would be secure ...

That was the first name that came to my mind, too.

But I'm kinda liking the idea of a CGI Data, perhaps performed by an actor wearing a motion-capture suit?

I'd rather just go with another actor in gold paint. We're all used to the recasts by now.
Gosh, I wish this would happen.
