Sci said: Ethan Locken - It's got to be Anthony Michael Hall. The man did an amazing job playing Bill Gates in Pirates of Silicon Valley; combine that with the darkness of Johnny Smith from The Dead Zone, and you've got a great villain.
Excellent choice. Never thought of that. I had pictured Kiefer Sutherland while reading it, but AMH definitely fits the bill.

Has anyone noticed how much the model of Treir of M:G book one's cover looks like a green skinned Rosanna Arquette? Just IMO...

Now picture Ethan Locken with panties on his head and you have it.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Sean Connery as Elias Vaughn
Russell Crowe as Yevir
Mel Gibson as Calhoun
Jesse L. Martin as Bowers

Shar...don't know about that. Patrick McKenna, maybe? (...on second thought, never mind. I always pictured him as an ENT character - Phlox's son, Metis, mentioned several times)

Christopher Lee as Akaar...yeah, I can see it. :thumbsup:

And if I may mention IKS Gorkon: Leslie Hendrix as B'Oraq. (Law & Order fans will know whomof I speak.)

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Hendrix ain't a bad choice for B'Oraq. I tend to waffle on casting for B'Oraq, to be honest -- sometimes Allison Janney is my choice, but that's not a solid choice. So I'm okay with Hendrix.

Ah, yes...Leslie. Dr. Rodgers has a very Klingonesque attitude

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ I love this one scene she had, where a murder victim has apparently died during S&M...

Rodgers: No defensive wounds.
Briscoe: That's odd.
Rodgers: Yeah, the fun part for these guys is the struggle AFTER they've been tied up.

(long pause)

Rodgers: Or so I've heard.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Yeah, Rogers is a great character.

I thought of someone who could be a good Yevir, Gregory Itzin. I think he did a good playing a nice guy in the begining of this season, and he also is playing a good
and I think Yevir would have to be able to pull off both. Although he may be alittle old for the part, I'm not sure exactly how old Yevir should be.

Yeah, I finally saw that one after you mentioned it.

Like I wrote before, I've always loved the scene where John (I Love Girls In Blue Scrubs Who Hang Around With Corpses) Munch asked if she would ever go out with him and she said "Not while I could still feed myself."

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

How about John Cameron Mitchell as Burgoyne 172 from New Frontier?

I'm not sure who to play Burboyne 172. But the picture on the cover of Fire on High does remond me of a yound David Bowie. Something about the eyes. Though I do think the roll might be best played by a female unless you can find a feminin enough looking male with intense enough eyes.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I've always thought that Mo Collins (of MadTV) would be a good Burgoyne.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

How about the woman that played Satan in "The Passion of the Christ?" She definitely has that quality where you do a double-take, not sure if it's a guy or a girl (I'm sure the bald head helped). But then, it's been a long time since I've seen the movie.

I don't think Rosalinda Celentano has the right look. It's not about her being bald. It's just her face just isn't right in this case.
