Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I must admit, I do like Nathan Fillion as Calhoun alot too. Hmm, I guess it's a tie now between him or Joe Flanagan.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Am I the only person on this board who thinks Flanigan is ill-suited for Calhoun?

I've always pictured a younger thinner Alec Baldwin as Calhoun.

Apparently.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

For what it's worth, EMH, while I don't think Flanigan is ill-suited for Calhoun, he's not my first choice. He'd be my second.

Goran Visnjic would be my first choice for Calhoun.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Having just rewatched "Equinox" on Spike, I would say that Rick Worthy, who played Equinox crewman Noah Lessing (as well as a Klingon, a Xindi, various other aliens and a Cylon and a Jaffa) might make a good Taran'atar. He's tall and can be imposing, and has a nice deep rich voice, and can do intense (as his "f**k you, bitch Janeway" scene indicated). And he can handle the makeup, which is almost as important.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I thought Phil Morris was already picked up as Taran'atar. I think the pictures on some of the DS9r novels have used his images from the Jem'Hadar he played in DS9.

Morris is Marco's choice for Taran'atar, but I have yet to be able to hear his voice in any of Taran'atar's appearances. It doesn't quite fit for me. *shrug*

And Morris was only used for Warpath -- different Jem'Hadar were used as the models for Avatar Book 2 and Lesser Evil.

Of all the idea's I've heard for Taran'atar my favorite so far has got to be Christopher Judge. He seems absolutely perfect IMO.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

You can't go wrong with Judge. What a voice! He evened played Magneto in the X-Men: Evolution cartoon.
I wish he'd act more. It seems that he's focusing on writing now.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Yeah, but I mean, like, see him around places, you know? Maybe even try his hand at movies or something. Once Stargate ends, it's my impression that he's not really gonna try to find work in front of the camera. But then, I haven't read any interviews in a few years.

Yeah, but once you do something like SG-1, you probably don't really need to anything else, at least not for a while.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Well, not for yourself. But try to think of all the people that like to watch you perform!

Getting back to the topic at hand, while tying it to current events: I'm reading Final Frontier right now, and it makes me wonder what it'd be like if Captain April were in the upcoming Trek movie. I have Robert Shaw firmly cast as April, but he couldn't play the part in real life. So, how about some speculation as to a contemporary actor that would be a good fit for Captain April, as portrayed in Final Frontier and his other Trek lit appearances?
