Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I'm watching the third hour of Day 3 of 24, and I've gotta say, I really think Gregory Itzin would be perfect for Zife. Another plus for him would the fact fact that he's played 5 different Trek characters, one of which was as recent as "In A Mirror, Darkly Part II".

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

So Zife is a sort of Trek version of Charles Logan? I can see that.

I think Lee would be totally wrong Arkar is huge to just tall. If any of you have read A song of ice and Fire it like trying to cast Gregor Clegane

Interesting. I was watching Day Six when it was airing a few months ago in the US, and Peter MacNicols' performance as Tom Lennox struck me as being absolutely perfect for how I saw Min Zife: The same inner weakness and indecisiveness combined with arrogance.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

So... I think we covered the new TNG characters from Resistance a couple months ago, but nobody's brought up casting ideas for the new characters introduced in Q&A, Miranda Kadohata and Zelik Leybenzon. Any ideas?

For Miranda, given that she's half Asian and half English, I tend to envision Lexa Doig (who's Filipina/Irish), albeit with an English accent. For Leybenzon -- bald, thick moustache, bulbous nose -- the closest I can come is G. Gordon Liddy, though I doubt that's what Keith had in mind.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

A reliable source informs me that there's an actress who appears in Battlestar Galactica: Razor who is perfect for Miranda. I'm reserving final judgment until I see it....

Elya Baskin would've been a perfect Leybenzon 15 years ago. So would Eugene Lazarev.

^ The actress in question is Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen. You can hear her voice in this clip from Razor.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

She looks good, but is a bit young, isn't she? If Miranda had been on the E-D since "Farpoint" in 2364, even if she were a green ensign at the time, she would have to be be pushing 40 by 2380. Of course, by 2380 37 might look like what 27 (Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen current age) looks like now.

Okay, I've watched the clip, and I'm sold. She is a bit young, but that's not a dealbreaker, and Miranda could very easily look young for her age.

Good choice!

Yeah, I can see that, although she wouldn't be my first choice.

Elya Baskin I definitely can see. Too bad he's too old (not that it really matters). I'm not familiar with Eugene Lazarev, however.

Who else was mentioned, cause I remember only T'lana being mentioned at the time. Both actresses are good choices for Miranda through.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I just looked back and the only other person I saw was someone saying Tom Welling as Lio.

After watching Monday's Prison Break, I just want to once again say that Jodi Lynn O'Keefe would be a good T'Prynn.

Not bad...but I still think Bridget Moynahan is a better fit for the role.
