I agree. Sinise in the role would've ben a real treat. But having said that I don't think I'd want to bend Sinise over and make him holler as I would with Karl.


Is it scary that I got a little creeped out by that?

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunet?

therefore, here we all are! Yes, Sinise would also have made a good McCoy - he does the great straight man to Spock and Kirk's antics - he has that same smoldery intensity as Karl - Karl will be great as a tortured priest. Don't tell Mr. Oldstredshrtevr but I wouldn't mind torturing Karl a little myself . . .

Matt Damon's Kirk.

Adrien Brody's Spock.

Gary Sinise's Bones.



The TREK that never was.

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunet?

^ Agreed. I can just picture him standing in a uniform with his hands clasped behind his back. On the bridge would be nice.

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunet?

I kinda wonder if Adrien Brody would have worked as Spock. I think Brody's nose and cheekbones were more like Nimoy's. His face is more angular and Vulcan-like. But Quinto probably embodied Spock's younger personality attributes better than Brody would have.

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunet?

^ I once would have said no, because I've never cared for Adrien Brody, but Zachary Quinto's taught me to never say never. I had only ever seen ZQ as Sylar, and I absolutely loathe that character--I don't even watch Heroes any more, mostly because of Sylar (okay, well, for other reasons, too, but I was ready for him to be killed off that first season). So I was afraid I wouldn't be able to enjoy the movie because of him.

Well, never once did I think of ZQ as Sylar during the movie--only as Spock. So it's very possible I could have handled Adrien Brody in the part. Like cooleddie said, he definitely had some of the same facial features.

Although, to my great surprise, I can't imagine anyone else but Zachary Quinto as young Spock now. Who'd a-thunk it?

And to bring it back on topic, the same goes for Karl Urban. He's perfect in the part in my eyes, and as much as I like Gary Sinise, I'm happy with the McCoy we got--and I hope he'll stay our McCoy for many movies to come!

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunet?

^ Agreed. I was a little worried when I heard about most of the cast. But Karl and Zachary were really the only ones I felt very confident about. (Actually the casting of Karl was completely out of left field for me but I knew immediately he was perfect.)

Re: Karl Urban -- blond or brunet?

Karl would probably win most fans' pick for best recreation of a TOS character in the new film. As believable as John Cho was as Sulu and Quinto was as younger Spock, Urban WAS DeForest Kelley in some scenes.
