Here are some of my casting suggestions
Sam Bowers - Shemar Moore
No way. Not even close.

Soleta - Claudia Black
Just oh so wrong.

Christine Vale - Peta Wilson
That's actually not bad.

Ranul Keru - Chris Scaramanga
Nope.

Nanietta Bacco - Meryl Streep
Nope. I'd use Kathy Bates there.

TLatrek - Judi Dench
Again nope.

Domenica Corsi - Marjorie Monaghan
Nope. I'm thinking Sandahl Bergman.

Regina Farkas - Tracy Scoggins
Tracy is not allowed to go anywhere near Trek.

Pava Ek'Noor sh'Aqabaa - Melissa George
Melissa George is a horrible actress[/QUOTE]

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Yeah, I've got to agree that Claudia Black is way off for Soleta. She's not a bad actress, she's just not even close to how I picture the character. The two I've heard that I like best are either Jennifer Connolly, or Lucy Liu ( I have no idea why, but for some reason I tend to picture Vulcan's as Asian).

Claudia Black's completely wrong for Soleta. too tall and too ... angular. Soleta in the 2 NF comics has a much softer, rounder face.

^^ Apropos of nothing, but it seems to me that how an actress looks isn't nearly as important as how she, y'know, acts.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

i can't comment on CB's acting skills. never seen farscape or stargate when she was in them.

but, when you're adapting stuff, it generally helps to get someone who looks like the character's supposed to as well as someone who can act.

Hugh Jackman may be a foot too tall for Wolverine, but he otherwise looks the part and acts like an angry short guy.

Christopher Loyd is too busy being a Klingon.
And it would be weird to have a Trek actor cast in more than one Trek role...

In this case yes as Loyd will always be known as a Klingon.
I disagree.

As do I. And Doc Brown as Sonek Pran is perfect to me; it actually does make me like the character more too.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Kathy Bates for President Bacco is a good one. And while I do like the idea of Christopher Lloyd for Pran, I have to admit that when I picture and hear him he's pretty much Terry J. Erdman. If you can get ahold of the Fan Collective DVD collection that deals with alternate realities and whatnot he speaks on the featurettes about the different episodes.

She is, but (and I'll admit it's been a while so I maybe remembering the character wrong) I never really saw Soleta as that much of an agressive hothead. Plus, she just looks nothing like how I picture Soleta.
