Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

My choice for Ree's voice has always been the voice Scott McNeil used as the raptor-like "Dinobot" on Beast Wars: Transformers, which is one of the great character voices of all time. McNeil used essentially the same voice as one of the dinosaurlike aliens in the Outer Limits adaptation of James Patrick Kelly's Hugo-winning novelette "Think Like a Dinosaur."

No worse than the idea of a Worf/Troi relationship. (Seriously... Rick must have scored some really good shit the week he approved that...)
Worf certainly had a thing for ladies that were different...

Ooh, good choice. Scott McNeil rocks; even knowing he did the voice of four of Beast Wars/Beast Machines' main characters, I still can't tell...

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

As it happens, Scott McNeil is also pretty much the voice I hear in my head for Elias Vaughn, but in more of the deep-voiced, gruff mode he used for Wolverine in X-Men Evolution. I say "pretty much" because the voice I hear is actually kind of a morph of that voice, Gene Barry, and Gregory Peck.

I just saw Mission Impossible III and I couldn't help but think that Maggie Q would be a really good Prynn. :thumbsup:

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

I've got a really wacky notion!
How about Bruce Campbell as Captain Mackenzie Calhoun in New Frontier?
You can't help but respect a starship captain who "leads with his chin," right??

In all seriousness, though, if anyone would be able to capture Calhoun's mixture of aggression, irreverence, and integrity perfectly, it would definitely be Campbell!

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

For anybody who thinks that Bruce can only play the sort of wry characters he usually does, I suggest you have a look at his Homicide: Life on the Street 2 part episode Justice. He's excellent in that as a detective who falls under suspicion when his father's killer turns up dead.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

^ What Cavit said. That role -- which was in the show's fourth season -- was a tour de force.

Homicide was good at using comic actors for serious roles, cf. Robin Williams and Chris Rock.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

Bruce Campbell was offered a Trek role already (Jack, one of the wacky guys from "Statistical Probabilities" on DS9) but he turned it down. So he probably wouldn't want to play Calhoun either.

Me, I still think Mel Gibson would make a good Calhoun.

Really? I thought that was apocryphal, just because the guy who did play him bore a striking resemblance to Campbell. What's your source on that? (Not saying you're wrong, just genuinely curious...)

Me, I never saw that, even though Peter said that Gibson in William Wallace mode was a template for Calhoun. Part of it is that Calhoun's snide doesn't sound right in Mel Gibson's voice, to me....

I'm sorry, but I really can't see that at all. I'm sticking with Joe Flanigan from Stargate Atlantis for my pick.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

For Vale, I always imagined Catherine Bell from JAG in the roll. She's hot, she can act, and she can kick ass. (And she looks good in underwear, according to my desktop wallpaper.)

As for Vaughn, I know some might consider this sacrilege since the movie is subpar but Anthony Zerbe who played Dougherty in Insurrection I always imagined in the role. I just started reading the DS9 relaunch but when Nog asks why Shar isn't on the Defiant in the Gateways novel and Vaughn says, "You may not ask" or something to that effect, I just pictured Zerbe saying those lines.
