    I meant Doctor Leone, the Endeavour CMO. I forgot his name and got him confused with Fisher.

    Also, thanks for casting Fisher for me there, Christopher.

    I meant Michael Sheen. Crap, I'm *not* doing well here, am I?

    PS, I AM reading the books, so don't think I'm, like, not reading them or anything.

    Freeman would make a great Fisher!

    I can't take the credit; it was David Mack's original suggestion in the Vanguard bible. I'm sure you can find the rest if you search this thread.

    for some reason, i keep picturing Fisher as the black desk sergeant from Demolition Man that Sly's character knew in the crapsack 90s.

    *quick wiki and google check*

    Bill Cobbs, who played Emory Erickson in ENT, is the actor.

    Yeah, because you're the only German here. ;)

    Once you hire him you'll have to find roles for most of the rest of the old Giga Games crew as well, though, it seems as if they only come in batches. (Seriously, I catched one of the newer Game One episodes some time ago and almost everybody from Giga Games' heyday was there it seems). :lol:

    David Mack did a really good job with the Freeman as Fisher thing, because I've never been able to picture anybody else in the role, even before I saw his cast list.

    Me too. In fact, I think I may have mentioned it once or twice in this thread already. Even though I know David Mack had Morgan Freeman in mind, I just couldn't picture anyone but Cobbs.

    I've always been unable to shake the mental image of Ken Leung as Xiong.

    With 156 pages to sort through I'm not sure if this suggestion is up here but how about Michael Sheen for Hugh Cambridge?

    I find it's helpful to use the Search function to track down character names in this thread.

    The author based Hugh Cambridge on Hugh Laurie. I'm not familiar enough with Sheen to know if he'd work too.

    Michael Sheen is known for roles such as Lucien in the Underworld movies, Tony Blair in The Queen, and David Frost in Frost/Nixon...amoungst many others. I like Hugh Laurie for the role too, but I'd say that Mr.Sheen would not be a bad choice..
