I don't like to jump on anyone's head picture but I have to agree in this case. Personally this is the actor I picture when I read Cambridge...

I'm baffled how anyone can see Cambridge as not Hugh Laurie.

*laughs and shrugs* It's just not the picture that formed in my head from first encountering the character. HL is certainly a valid choice but just not the one that naturally came to me.

Which does not make him "right." Characters can come across very differently to an audience member than an author intended, after all.

He shares the actor's first name and his surname comes from Mr Laurie's university.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Personally,I'm not going any farther with the Voyager relaunch but the Dr.Cambridge/Dr.House thing seems pretty shameless to me.


Actually mentioning Shameless,will the new DS9 crew feature a drunken scrounger?

Um... Out of curiousity, are you meaning not farther as in not reading any more? And could you explain the reference since it's really really lost on me. TIA.

/\Yeah,the Voyager relaunch didn't impress me for several reasons but I guess that's my problem.

"Shameless" is a British comic/drama tv series about a family of, well,drugged-up,pissed-up welfare louts in Manchester(?).
It has been remade in the states and stars William H. Macy.

^ At this stage, the UK Shameless is only marginally more believable than DS9...

Ah. Okay. Well not everything is for everyone. I just wasn't sure if you had meant the books or the casting thread. As for the show thanks thanks for the explanation. I'll see if netflix has either (I'm a huge WHM fan).

Well, the US version isn't on DVD yet, so you won't find that.

Thanks for the info. You've saved me great brain sweat trying to hunt it up. Although I will check Netflix in case they have a coming soon page for it.
