Don't know why but I'm seeing Zack Grenier from " the good wife" as Ishan.

Whenever Ishan Anjar says anything, I hear his voice as Bill Ratner (Councilor Udina from Mass Effect). I don't think his look is quite right, but if there were ever an animated adaptation of The Fall...
Given the events of 'Ceremony of Losses,' I think Udina's 'This is an OUTRAGE!' line would be a definite fit...

EDIT: Mixed up my titles.

Funny you should suggest this actor:

Last week as I watched the Good Wife, I wished that DS9 was still currently in production because Grenier would make a great Ferenghi. Maybe it's his stature or the character he plays on GW, but he has greedy Ferenghi written all over him.

Hah.

This works particularly well because I envision Akaar using Hackett's voice; can't help it.

But that could refer to his time as a cadet as well as an officer. If Bowers were in his late thirties, Richards could still work.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

This idea popped into my head while I was rereading Articles of the Federation:

Alan Rickman as Kant Jorel, mainly from seeing him do disdain so well, as Severus Snape, but also from what I saw of him in Love, Actually

and

Jesse Eisenberg, with elements from his performance in The Social Network, as Zhres

God, it would be fun to watch those two in those roles.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I find myself veering between seeing President Pro Tempore Ishan Anjar as being either Ian Richardson or Bruce Dern. (Odd combo, right?)

I had Hugh Laurie in full-on Greg House mode (albeit with his natural British accent) when writing Kant, but Rickman works, too.

Really? That's two Trek-Lit characters based on Hugh Laurie, then (Counselor Hugh Cambridge being the other).

Mm, yeah, I could see Hugh Laurie in there too. Of course, my main exposure to Hugh Laurie has been through A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster (never was able to get into House, for whatever reason), so it's funny to think of him playing a jerk.

Interesting! I always pictured Kant as played by Kurtwood Smith in full-on Red Foreman mode. (But then, I also pictured him as Councillor Enaren of Betazed.... my brain is repetitive?)

I always liked to think of Annorax acting the same way.

Well, sure, maybe now. I posted that in April 2006!
