Odd, since Cary Grant starred in Hitchcock's 1955 film To Catch a Thief, based on a book by David Dodge. Oh, wait, you said the book is set in the '40s, not written then. I guess the author is making an homage to the film in some way.
Kaminsky has a series of private eye novels set in 1940s Hollywood, each one involving stars of the time (Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, etc), sometimes with titles alluding to their movies.
Correct but I didn't help matters by incorrectly naming the book in my orignal post! It's actually called To Catch A Spy (not thief) and is obviously a play on the title of that movie - Grant is working for British Intelligence in the novel. I was obviously thinking of the movie when I previously posted.

So who could play Cary Grant in the DS9R?!

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

For some reason, I'm tempted to say Brock Peters. I guess that would be the Bubba Hotep version of Cary Grant, though.

Vaughn - Robert DeNiro - older, commanding, and looks like he can still kick butt and take names.

Shar - Rodrigo Santoro (Xerxes, from 300) - looked pretty feminine and yet formidable enough for an Andorian.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Eh. I'm sticking with err, well I hadn't decided to use good old Bruce "John Sheridan" Boxleitner yet, but after seeing him in the first few episodes of Season 2 of B5, I've decided to go with him for Vaughn. I'm just curious to see the older goateed(sp) Sheridan, so I can see how much his appearances matches my vision of Vaugh. My Shar choice is still Vincent "Connor" Kartheiser from Angel.


I was just curious if any of the Vanguard authors have a choice for who would do the voice of Jetanien, because I have not been able to come up with anyone?

I'm not a Vanguard author, but I've always "cast" Roscoe Lee Browne as the voice of Jetanien.

I'm gonna get panned for this, but for some reason, I couldn't help hearing Edward Hibbert, who played Gil the food critic on Frasier. Cognitively, I know the voice doesn't really fit the part, but I still couldn't get the voice out of my mind.

Looking left to right, I saw "Frasier" before I saw "Edward Hibbett" and thought you were going to suggest Kelsey Grammer. Who would be a good choice, come to think of it.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

True, although I also cast Earl Boen (Dr. Silberman on "Terminator," as well as a lot of voice work) as the Klingon Ambassador, so their voices would probably be too similar.

It could be worse. When I first read Titan: Taking Wing I couldn't help but imagined Dr Ree's voice to be that of Wallace Shawn, aka the voice of Rex from Toy Story.

Nope, sorry. He'll always be first and foremost the Sicilian.

Kelsey Grammer is a good choice for Ree.
