Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

BTW, when I sat down to read After the Fall and Missing in Action recently, I had NO trouble, none, hearing Joe Flanigan's voice for Calhoun. It fit like a glove.

No way. He's all wrong. Bruce Boxleitner would be the better choice.

And for Calhoun, I go with Alex Baldwin.

*shakes head*

Maybe this is my distain for Atlantis, but I still cannot see Flanigan as Calhoun. He looks the part, but he definately doesn't not sound it. At least, not in my head.

^^ Bruce Boxleitner for Vaughn? Vaughn's supposed to be over 100 years old. Even being in prime physical condition for his age, he should look decades older than Boxleitner. IMHO, he should look a few decades older than his pictures on the book covers.

But humans live longer in the future and presumably age more slowly. Picard is a decade older than Patrick Stewart.

That's nothing make-up can't fix. Did you see Babylon 5's series finale, "Sleeping in Light"? True, Sheridan wasn't suppose to look 100 years old, but he definately looked a lot older with make-up.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

I concede both your points, though I still think an older actor with less makeup needed would be preferable.

Also, if Picard is supposed to be in his early 70s, think about how even he'll look in 30 years. A fair bit older and more weathered than the gentleman on the cover of Mission Gamma: Twilight, I'd think. But then again, this is Star Trek, where there's a tacit assumption that what we as the audience see isn't exactly what the characters themselves see.

Boxleitner's voice is an interesting option for Vaughn's, though. I'll have to reread some of his scenes and try to hear it.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

I don't know that much about the history of Vaughn, but since he looked so young on the covers I just figured there was something funky about him that meant he wasn't aging properly. I still like that idea

I like "something funky" - it has a ring to it, don't you think?

Bruce Boxleitner for Vaughn? And people say that Connery can't act? Sorry, don't see it.

I'd been pondering the possibility of Christopher Lee as Vaughn myself, but I'm not sure Lee (82) could handle that kind of physical work. Then again, since reality isn't actually a concern...

Though he could certainly pull of Akaar's just-this-side-of-rude aloof and disdainful attitude.

^ Christopher Lee for Akaar, i don't know I just don't see it. Personally, I go with the guy from Red King's cover, who is, I belive the actor that played his father in TOS.

Re: Casting the DS9 Relaunch

I was going with "tall' and Mr Lee was the only name that popped in my head. And Allison Janney is totaly wrong for the part.
