    Which character is that? The Prince Regent in Blackadder the Third or George in Blackadder Goes Forth? :p

    I'm nearly certain that it has been stated Kirsten based Cambridge on Hugh Laurie/House in the Full Circle thread

    I always pictured Ron Glass as Doctor Kez, so much so that I modelled a custom I'm doing of him after the actor

    While reading the Titan series, especially Sword of Damocles, the image of Lennie James kept popping into my head whenever I pictured Jaza, even though I was trying to picture Djimon Hounsou.

    Possibly because I spent the last month watching BSG but I kept picturing Edward James Olmos as Reyes in Open Secrets.

    ^I read some of David Mack's annotations, and he said that he pictured Tommy Lee Jones as Reyes. Ever since I read it, he's all I can picture :)

    I used to pictured Edward James Olmos too, but for some reason he never felt quite right. But ever since watching Caprica I've been picturing Esai Morales, who play's Adama's father instead, and (to me at least) he seems to fit what I have in mind better.

    Morales would be a good choice. I can see him, a decade or two older, almost as well as I can Olmos in the role.

    Tommy Lee Jones has Vaughn... Might be better than Connery...
    I don't know, though...

    for some reason I kept seeing Bruce Greenwood as Sonek Pran in A Singular Destiny
    he was superbly cast as Pike so maybe that's why he stuck with me for Sonek . . .

    I just cannot picture it. Sonek Pran to me was more of a grandfatherly figure.

    Yeah, Sonek Pran is your old hippie grandfather who did a lot of LDS in the 60s. ;)

    I tend to imagine Ron Glass as Sonek Pran, actually.

    I cast Bruce Greenwood for TrekLit years ago, though: I pictured him playing Federation President Kenneth Wescott after I saw him play former United States President John F. Kennedy in the movie Thirteen Days.

    To be fair, that's in part because I see Wescott as a Kennedy analogue...

    ^Earl Hyman is 80+ and Pran is part Vulcan, so at 65, he doesn't look like a human in his 80's...

    I could see that. Although KRAD has actually said the character is based on Arlo Guthrie.

    When I read it the first time, I mentally had David Carradine (as he looked in Alias) as Sonek Pran:)
