Re: Speculation: Would Brooks do DS9 again

I bet he would. I know he had a great relationship with Cirroc Lofton and he'd probably enjoy working with him again.
Regardless, we'll never see Sisko or DS9 on screen again.

Re: Speculation: Would Brooks do DS9 again

I went to a Q & A session at a convention he did in 2009 and he said he would. The way he said it was pretty funny, actually, and the highlight of an otherwise disappointing session.

Fan: "If there was a Deep Space Nine movie, would you be interested in reprising your role of Benjamin Sisko?"

Brooks: "I'd be interested...but they better hurry up. How long has it been since the show went off the air?"

Fan: "Ten years."

Brooks: "They better hurry up!"

It was a cute little exchange.

I've seen the YouTube vid for that before. I came in here to post 'they'd better hurry up'.

At least in DS9's case, we know for a fact nothing is in the works. That third Stargate movie drives me insane because it was in the works. Ditto for the Atlantis movie.

Re: Speculation: Would Brooks do DS9 again

Alas I think it's pretty safe to say that Brooks' final performance as Benjamin Sisko was his voice work for the video game "Star Trek: Legacy."

Which is too bad, because the game was total crap.

I'd rather have the show back without him.

Re: Speculation: Would Brooks do DS9 again

I liked the character of Sisko but the writers kind of painted him in a corner. Actually DS9 and Voyager both ended on a more or less final note. At least Janeway had a cameo in the last Next Gen movie as a Admiral. Sisko is off with the Profits. If anything Sisko should have shown up on Enterprise since time means nothing to the Profits.

But the wormhole aliens (as I like to call them) live in a different spacetime. So Sisko could show up the day after he left with 100 years of knowledge from the aliens.

Re: Speculation: Would Brooks do DS9 again

My impression of Avery is that he enjoys his craft and likes to do theater, and for whatever reason just doesn't work that much

He has been around since the 80's and I only remember him in four roles, Hawk on Spencer for Hire, Sisko on DS9, American History X, and another movie called 15 Minutes with Robert DiNero and Kelsey Grammar. In the last almost 10 years, he hasn't been in anything. Nothing. He's done some documentaries and whatnot, but he has never been in another TV series or film. Not even a guest shot on something like Law and Order.

http://trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=122715

I don't think it is because Hollywood doesn't want him, quite the opposite. Something that some people may not know is that Avery Brooks is a University professor at Rutgers since 1976 per his bio on IMDB. He also has a Masters in Fine Arts from said institution. I am sure that the producers had to beg the man to do DS9. If Brooks wouldn't have done it, the second choice was Carl Weathers. Action Jackson. Yeah, that dude.

To me, Avery Brooks is a college professor who was in Hollywood for some years, made his money and now he is back being a professor, doing theater and Star Trek conventions. The man is doing what he wants to do, and probably not the type that is into luxuries that can be afforded to the A listers who make $10 million dollars a movie. However, he does look like a rock star in public.

Yeah, he's the bomb-diggity. I think what he does and how he runs his life are pretty inspiring to a guy like me.
