I was just reading Olympus Descending by David R. George III, from the third volume of the Worlds Of Deep Space Nine series. And I couldn't help but think that John Hurt would be a wonderful choice to play Indurane, the ancient Founder!
Weeelllll...???

I just watched Domino yesterday- and loved it- and now I keep thinking that Keira Knightley could be a cool T'Prynn.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Keira Knightley is a fine actress, and quite lovely -- but I think she's not quite right for this character.

Uhm, wrong character. Similar name.

How about John Cameron Mitchell as Burgoyne 172 from New Frontier?
Naw, for Burgy I'm thinking Katherine Moennig (L Word, Young Americans, L&O:SVU).

It took me less than 60 seconds to correct my error -- and already someone had to pounce. *Sigh.*

But...what if I'm really poor and can't even afford to rent it? If that were the case, would Reign of Fire serve to exemplify Pennington's accent?
Never seen Reign of Fire. Not my kind of movie.

Here's the intro to Trainspotting on youtube. Contains rude language.

That's the accent and the inspiration. Perfectamundo.

^ Pennington is described as being a Scotsman, so I think McGregor would have the accent he used in Trainspotting.

'Fraid I haven't seen that movie. Does he use this accent in Reign of Fire? (I haven't seen that either, but I recorded it from the TV and I'm planning to watch it eventually.)
Given that McGregor isn't actually in Reign of Fire, it's extremely unlikely that he uses that or any accent in it.

His Scottish accent is best heard in Trainspotting, Shallow Grave, as one of his characters in The Island and in A Life Less Ordinary.

Inspiration? Does Pennington have a similar outlook on life?

Dang it! Those beards on the cover always confuse me. I can't tell you how many times I've passed that movie in the video store and thought Matthew McConaghey (sp?) was Kiefer Sutherland. Oh well, so I was wrong again. It happens. I used to think McGregor played the title character of "Sky Captain" as well.
I guess that means I haven't seen anything at all with that guy (except that Trainspotting clip).

You've not seen any of the Star Wars prequel movies? Wow. I mean, I know there are plenty of people out there who loathe them, but to have not seen them altogether...

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
