Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

How about Donald Sutherland as Captain Gold?

^ Well, the ideal casting is really Harry Morgan, but Sutherland's almost never a bad choice.

If you go by his appearance on TNG, yeah. But he looks quite a bit older on 4400...

^ I'm going by how he looks on The 4400. He's too young.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ Huh. Interesting.

The vocal style Gold has developed over 70+ eBooks and two short stories doesn't really match the cadence of how Alda talks, but it might be fun to see.

Well, it's not like David Gold sounds all that much like Sherman T. Potter, either.

Though it would be fun to have him call Tev on being full of "horse hockey."

AS long as we are talking about M*A*S*H actors playing Gold, I always thought that the picture of Gold on the cover of The Art of the Deal] looked more like BJ/Mike Farrell than Potter/Morgan.

Interesting choice. I'm liking Leslie Nielson for Gold.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I was watching Monday's Prison Break online yesterday, and I found myself thinking that Rober Wisdom (Lechero) could be a pretty second choice for Ganz. Same goes for the actess playing "Susan B. Anthony" and T'Prynn.
