Re: Should Data have been recast for Nemesis?

From my understanding, Spiner wanted to be written out in a heroic death due to his age reflecting on the character.

TPTB insisted on creating a loophole with B4 so they could revive Data if they needed to.

Recasting him for the movie would have allowed them to drop Spiner, and his baggage, as well as select someone that's younger and would clash out with the rest of the crew (they could play up to what Data said in the episode "Time's Arrow" where he said he was expecting to outlive several generations of friends.

Not that Nemesis didn't have worse problems, but at least they could have forgotten the entire idea of "Data's death", and maybe the movie wouldn't have ended up so depressing.

Re: Should Data have been recast for Nemesis?

I think recasting him would have been a terrible idea. But I would actually like if they de-aged him like they did Jeff Bridges in Tron Legacy.
