Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Ever since watching Caprica, I can't help but picture Sasha Roiz as Makk Vinx from the SCE books. Sam Adama has the same kind of "gangster with a heart of gold" goofball charm.

Hell, Caprica itself could probably double as 24th-Century Sigma Iotia II, what with the whole "pinstripe suits and tyrolean hats" 30s/40s style.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've started watching The L Word on Netflix (and no it's just because I'm a perv who wants to see lesbian sex scenes, I started because a lot of actors and actresses I really like were in it) and I got thinking that Katherine Moennig would make a great Bergoine in New Frontier.

Or anyone with that hairstyle (Daniela Sea was suggested earlier in this thread). Of course Moenning was also in Young Americans as a girl pretending to be a boy and having a crush on her boarding school roommate.

As for who would play Christine Vale, I would say a definite to Katee Sackhoff after seeing her on 24. One would have to ignore the narrative descriptions of Vale as petite, but I'm sold on Amanda Tapping in the role after having seen just a few episodes of Stargate SG-1.

Ross Kemp was Grant Mitchell from eastenders. Was married to Martine Mccutcheons character Tiffany when she was in it, brother of Phil and daughter of Peggy (Barbara Windsor from carry on films). And NO I don't watch eastenders, I'm just english and we can't help but know these things. Must be a genetic marker we have for knowing whats going on in the soaps without watching them More recently he's been travelling round the world with a cameraman being filmed meeting scary people or going into dangerous situations. E.g. "Ross Kemp on Gangs", "Ross Kemp in Afghanistan" etc. etc. He's tall, bald and bug eyed. Like a giant Gollum
Or an unconvincing Michael Chiklis.

^ Seriously though, as soon as I saw The Shield, I thought 'See, that's what Grant Mitchell would be like if he actually was scary, as oppose to soap-opera scary'.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ LOL, you're probably right.

Chiklis would be my pick for Kebron.

^ Bit too similar to what he did in FF, though isn't it? I'd prefer Michael Clarke Duncan myself.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Has anyone here heard about http://www.imaginecasting.com? Basically you fill out who you want to play whom in various tv/movie ideas, and the favourite choices get tallied. Theres several Star Trek ideas there, I tried starting a Titan and Gorkon thread. Might bring some of those ideas here, maybe?

Is this thread for all different Trek novels? Or just some?

Any and all. The thread was stated so we didn't end up with a million different casting threads for all of the different books.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'm reading Vanguard: Summon the Thunder and wondering about Doctor Tony Leone from the Endeavour. Memory Alpha doesn't list him in any book following this one, so I suppose that's why no results for them have turned up in this thread. Unfortunately all of my "Italian Male" references are mob-related, and it doesn't help that Leone is the name of the major Mafia family in the Grand Theft Auto games.

I suppose I could also draw from various Italian-American singers, too.
