Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

In the role of Min Zife, I was picturing Gregory Itzin, who played President Logan on 24.

To play Koll Azernal, my favorite suggestion so far was from KRAD, who recommended Ian McShane, most recently seen as Al Swearengen on HBO's Deadwood.

Never really thought about the casting of Kinchawn, to be honest. I guess I'd have to say I'm open to suggestions on that one.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I can't belief I didn't think of Gregory Itzin for Zife, he would deffinitely be perfect. Plus he's played 5 different Star Trek characters, so he's deffinitely no stranger to the franchise. I like McShane too, although now that I've got Swearengen in mind I'm gonna keep expecting him to start dropping tons of F-Bombs just kidding.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I always picture Peter MacNicol as President Zife and Bruce McGill as Azernal.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

My first time through, I pictured Stargate's Don Davis as Zife, but that was a huge mistake. He's way too authoritative and booming. Now I'm not sure. I have trouble seeing Itzin in the role, and it's easier to imagine a bald actor as a Bolian. I think Jeffrey Tambor has been suggested, and that could work. I've considered maybe Dana Elcar (Pete from MacGyver).

Didn't Don Davis work as a body double for Elcar during MacGyver? I think I remember him saying that in a Stargate interview. Not that it's relevant, just a little trivia I heard.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^^I think you mean a photo double or stand-in, someone meant to pass for an actor/actress from the rear or at a distance. A body double is a stand-in for a nude scene. I don't think we saw any Pete Thornton nude scenes in MacGyver, nor would we have wanted to.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

She would be a good actress to play Kat Muller.

Who would be good to play Alex Munroe from Elite Force? I know its a game but still, just an idea.

I don't see that at all. Kat Muller is a big, tough, Amazonian woman, more in the Marjorie Monaghan area.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Monaghan only isn't my choice for Mueller because she's a better choice for Corsi.
